Later this month, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to be married, but don't expect their honeymoon to come just around the corner. According to a spokesperson for the Kensington Palace, the soon-to-be-hitched couple is delaying their honeymoon due to their busy schedule. So, while the royal couple will be having the wedding of a lifetime in a matter of weeks, their commitments to the royal family will keep them from celebrating it in full. At least, for the time being. Here's what Jason Knauf, Kensington Palace's spokesperson, said about the paused honeymoon.
The couple will be going on honeymoon, but not straightaway. They will have their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding.
Entertainment Tonight got the quote. The royal wedding, which is set for May 19th, is the primary focus at the moment. Then after that, it's business as usual for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. At least until there's some breathing room in their schedules, that is. Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's honeymoon is delayed, they do have a destination in mind.
The plan is to celebrate their honeymoon in Namibia, which is where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to find some much-needed privacy in the midst of their extended (and extensive) wedding plans. It's considered one of the least densely populated countries in the entire world, which should be a relief for one of the most famous couples in the world right now. Rumor has it, they'll be celebrating their honeymoon inside Natural Selection's Hoanib Valley Camp, the country's newest luxury camp. Sounds pretty nice! We hope they share some pictures from the premiere hot spot.
The preparations are all seemingly in order for the upcoming royal wedding. They've got their guest list (which may or may not include Elton John and The Spice Girls), the destination (the Windsor Castle) and the Queen's blessing, among other details set in place. Now, it's simply a matter of time 'til the nuptials precede. It's the wedding of the year, no doubt. It's also going to be televised live for the world to see. So, you know, no pressure there.
With that said, the wedding is ultimately the focus for now. But the honeymoon will come at an undisclosed time, and we're sure Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are looking forward to kicking their royal feet back and enjoying time away from the public spotlights. That said, when it comes to all the Royal Wedding news and details -- especially as the wedding date looms closer -- we'll keep you posted here at CinemaBlend.
