Since the wedding’s going to be firmly in Harry’s neck of the woods, we reckon that the honeymoon might bring Meghan back to her roots. Although she’s lived in Canada for the past few years, Meghan’s a born and raised American.
She’s called New York her ‘home away from home’, which could put the city in the running for the couple’s honeymoon destination of choice. From shopping on Fifth Avenue, to taking in the bright lights of Times Square, they’d have plenty to keep them busy.
And, when it comes to hotels, the Lotte New York Palace – which we pulled out as one of NYC’s most stylish hotels – is fit for royalty. This fancy hotel’s decked out in marble, so the Prince should feel right at home.
Mexico’s another classic honeymooners’ hotspot. It boasts beautiful beaches, amazing scuba diving scenes, and some stunning natural sights. What’s more, we know that looking after the environment’s something that’s close to the Prince’s heart. It’s one of the big drivers behind the charity he started with his brother – The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
Stays at the TUI SENSATORI Resort Azul Mexico have been given the eco-friendly stamp, with our greener and fairer hotels initiative. The hotel takes part in lots of great schemes, including a sea turtle conservation programme, to make sure that their holidays don’t hurt the environment.
Plus, Meghan, who has worked as a UN women’s advocate, would be sure to get on board with the hotel’s partnership supporting a local Mayan women’s cooperative, selling and serving dragon fruit jam in the hotel.
During Prince Harry’s well-documented youth, he liked to have a bit of fun. One of his most famous exploits took place in Croatia, on the island of Hvar, where Harry took a bit of a tumble. Into a swimming pool. In a nightclub.
Once he’s a married man, we think he might fancy a trip back to Croatia, to get a second look at the parts of this picture-perfect country that he might have overlooked the first time around. Croatia’s full of beautiful natural sights, which would make an ideal backdrop for those honeymoon album pics.
Rabac, in the Istrian Riviera, is the perfect springboard for visits to the national park-peppered islands of Krk, Cres, and Rab. We’re talking neck-craning mountain ranges and eye-widening scenery, as well as white-sand beaches.
Prince William opted for a honeymoon on the ultra-exclusive North Island, in the Seychelles. We reckon that Harry might take some inspiration from his big bro, and jet off to the Seychelles’ next-door archipelago, the Maldives.
This place is a honeymoon magazine staple, with its couples-only vibe, ice-white sands and bright-blue seas. What’s more, it’s made up of over 2,000 islands peppered with secret beaches, so it would give the newlyweds a welcome chance to take a break from the spotlight.
The The Surrey oozes class, just like our soon-to-be royal newlyweds. We’re talking Michelin-star dining, famous artwork, and a 17th-floor rooftop garden complete with views of Central Park.
Peace and quiet’s top of the list at the TUI SENSIMAR Kalamota Island Resort. This exclusive resort is the perfect remedy for any leftover wedding stress. The hotel has the island to itself, and to top it off, it’s completely car-free.
The beachfront combines luxury with charity, so it suits Harry and Meghan down to the ground. The El Dorado Royale Spa Resort by Karisma is part of our premium Platinum collection and it provides scholarships for its staff’s children.
