Royal couple holiday on exclusive island in the Seychelles
Last month’s Royal wedding dominated the world’s media in way that only a Royal romance can . Now newly marrieds the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are honeymooning in the Seychelles. Despite attempts by the Palace to keep it secret , news has come out that Princess Diana’s son Prince William and Kate are in the Seychelles . They spent a week in the Indian Ocean archipelago, on the island of Desroches, in August 2007. William is reported to have told islanders that the trip was the best holiday he had had. Desroches is the main island of the Amirantes group, an exclusive setting well beyond the reach of most honeymoon couples. The archipelago boasts 115 islands. This might show William and Kate’s relationship is on a more equal footing than his parents’. Charles and Diana’s post-wedding travels in 1981 – Broadlands in Hampshire, family home of the Mountbattens, followed by a Mediterranean cruise on the royal yacht, then on to Balmoral with his family – smacked of a husband calling the shots. Whether the Amirantes will be such an aphrodisiac is another question. William was born in 1982, eight months after the couple returned.
