How exciting! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly chosen a honeymoon destination. After they tie the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle on Saturday, May 19, the couple will be jetting off to Namibia, sources recently told the Daily Mail.
While previous reports suggested that the royal pair were planning a post-wedding trip to the Caribbean island of Nevis or even a return to Botswana — where they previously holidayed to mark their first anniversary as a couple — it now seems that Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, have their hearts set on visiting the south-west African country. They’ve reportedly left the organization to luxury travel company Natural Selection, who have arranged a stay at the Hoanib Valley Camp, a four-hour car drive from the nearest town, for the VIP couple.
Lodges at the camp — which is still being built, but in what is surely far from a coincidence, is due to be finished in May — cost $700 per night. According to a source, the couple has been advised to book a number of lodges in order to keep their exact whereabouts a secret from tourists and paparazzi.
The camp is a joint venture between local communities and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and, according to Natural Selection’s website, is "an elegant, intimate affair that immerses you into the wilds of the desert," with six rooms offering "a simple aesthetic that matches the rugged landscape." Inside, the furniture has been sourced from local materials and shaped by local craftspeople, and the camp’s eco credentials are strong: — it’s powered by solar energy, keeping carbon emissions to a minimum. It’s also been reported that the couple will enjoy a low-key mini-moon in Ireland following the wedding, where they’ll also be kept busy with a number of official royal events.
