Meghan Markle, Prince Harry Heading to North Island, Seychelles for Honeymoon?
It’s the most private, most exclusive island in the Indian Ocean so will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry follow in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s footsteps and spend the first few blissful days of their married life at North Island?
According to reports Meghan and Prince Harry want to go somewhere “private and isolated” for their “royal honeymoon,” given that they’ll be having a “pomp-filled wedding that’ll be watched around the world.”
So, do the lovebirds have their hearts set on North Island? The secret hideaway was the first choice for Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, a couple who had the pick of anywhere on earth for their honeymoon.
The main reason for their decision is that North Island, Wilderness Safaris’ private island in the Indian Ocean off the East Africa coast, affords absolute privacy aided by a no-paparazzi guarantee.
With just 11 villas, 10 of these are 4,890 square feet, while the top of the line Villa 11 is 8,073 square feet. In essence, they are more like private luxury hideaways with sprawling outdoor areas, a private plunge pool and private access to powder-white beaches, giving very little reason for couples to leave their own secluded haven – even if they you do, they’re unlikely to set eyes upon another soul.
In fact, the only other guests you may cross paths with are bright green geckos, tropical fish, manta rays and gigantic tortoises – many over whom are over 100 years old. Part of a conservation effort that has rehabilitated the natural surroundings, this untouched tropical paradise is a sanctuary for endangered fauna and flora – as well as for honeymooners who are head-over-hills in love.
2018 rates for the Presidential Villas start at €6,127 per night and €9,644 per night for Villa North Island excluding tax. Children under the age of 17 sharing the second bedroom are free of charge. For young adults aged 17-19 sharing the second bedroom, the rate is €672 per night. For more information on North Island visit www.north-island.com.
