Fit for a Queen: Best Royal Honeymoon Destinations

With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle rumoured to have chosen Namibia for their honeymoon, we have rounded up the best royal honeymoon destinations over the last few decades. Fit for a queen, each of these destinations offer the utmost in privacy and comfort, with stays in some of the luxury hotels of the world.

Buckingham Palace

Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon

​Princess Margaret’s marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones in May 1960 was the first royal wedding to be televised. As Britain’s most glamorous couple after a champagne breakfast at Buckingham Palace, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon set sail on the Royal Yacht Britannia for a three-week honeymoon around the Caribbean.

Hermitage Bay Antigua

​As part of their honeymoon they explored the likes of Trinidad and Antigua. Vibrant and lively, the energetic pace of life in Trinidad is a stark contrast to Antigua, which is the more quintessential Caribbean island. Fringed with dazzling white sand and aquamarine waters, it is said that Antigua has 365 beaches — one for each day of the year. ​​The distinct lack of chain hotels, further adds to the island feel by making the experience more authentic. For newlyweds, we highly recommend the 5* Hermitage Bay resort for complete seclusion and privacy.

Hermitage Bay Antigua

Explore the Caribbean from £1951 per person.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana

The first part of Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s honeymoon was split between Broadlands and Balmoral. The couple then boarded the Royal Yacht Britannia for a cruise through the Greek isles and Egypt. However, should you prefer to be situated in one location for the duration of your honeymoon, the Greek island of Santorini is the perfect destination. ​

Santorini Sunset

​The town of Oia is where you will find the iconic blue domes and sublime sunsets that have made Santorini famous. Here you will also find The Katikies, one of the luxury hotels of the world set 300 feet above sea level. ​Comfort, serenity, and privacy are guaranteed as the hotel’s romantic atmosphere provides guests with a memorable intimate escape. ​

Discover Santorini from £2091 per person.

Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

​After Prince William and Kate’s wedding the newly married couple left the UK for North Island, a luxury private island resort in the Seychelles. With the whitest sand and lushest vegetation of any island in the Seychelles, this spectacular resort has also hosted Amal and George Clooney. ​The 11 luxurious villas are all elegantly appointed providing direct access to the beach and ocean. And the meticulously crafted layout of the resort means that each villa is completely screened from view, ensuring total privacy as well as ocean views.

With meals, drinks, scuba diving courses, cruises, yoga classes and more included, this all inclusive resort has deservedly earned its reputation as one of the world’s best hotels for the ultimate barefoot luxury experience.
