After a very public wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle managed to pull off a very private honeymoon.
The newly named Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry visited more than one country for their honeymoon. One of the nations in East Africa has been confirmed while the second country has not been revealed.
Heavy security was provided for the couple, and utmost secrecy was maintained after a Taliban threat of killing the couple, Punch reported. It must be remembered that Prince Harry was a trained Apache pilot with the Royal Air Force and served his tenure in Afghanistan where he came under Taliban crosshairs.
According to E!News, it was more of a restorative week after the couple had been through a hectic schedule with meetings and other Royal duties since they tied the knot .
The couple will have a frenetic second half of 2018. The couple married on May 19 and had to attend some ceremonies, including Prince Charles’ 70 birthday.
The Duchess of Sussex wore an off-the-shoulder dress by Carolina Herrera at the event, and royal fans were annoyed – calling her an ‘attention seeking “looney tunes,’ Cosmopolitan noted.
However, Meghan remained unfazed and is fast learning the Royal etiquette of not reacting to such insults. She also had her first outing with her Grandmother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth.
Some time to recoup their energy
Ever since their return from the royal honeymoon, the fourth estate went into a roll, and everyone is asking about the destination of their honeymoon. The inner circles of the Royal Family were tight-lipped; the only hint forthcoming was that the couple had been to two very different countries.
E! News first broke the news that the royal couple visited two countries in East Africa and their sojourn included safaris and various “outdoor adventures” and also basked in the sun.
Fans, however, can’t help but wonder if a royal baby could be in the near future. Prince Harry famously told ABC News that he’s “longed” for kids “since I was very, very young.”
Africa has played a prominent role in Harry and Meghan’s love relationship. Botswana was the place they fell in love, and the two went back there for Meghan’s 36th birthday last year.
The newlywed royals are reportedly back in the U.K. following their romantic vacation.
