After more than a week of keeping the world guessing, the Kate and William have finally left for their honeymoon – secrecy still surrounds the destination, but it’s widely believed to be a holiday in the Seychelles.
With a record two billion people watching the wedding globally, their choice of honeymoon is predicted to send ripples through the travelsphere.
STA Travel group managing director John Constable commented: Wills and Kate are perhaps the most accessible Royal couple, in terms of young people relating to what they’ve done – specifically in terms of travel history.
Both have had gap years, been on safari, been to Australia and South America, all of which are on the travel wish list of every young person in the UK.
The Seychelles is already one of the most popular honeymoon destinations – but now its popularity is going to soar as people look to emulate Wills and Kate.
However it’s not just the honeymoon destination which have been thrown into the spotlight thanks to the newlyweds, but luckily you don’t need a Royal bank balance to holiday like Wills and Kate thanks to STA Travel.
