A string of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean about 1,000 miles off the coast of Kenya, Seychelles is the reported top-secret honeymoon spot of Prince William and new bride Kate Middleton.
A team of national Coast Guard boats patrolling the waters near the archipelago’s North Island this week fueled speculation among locals and the British press that the pair are honeymooning there.
With a population of only 90,000 the seclusion offered by Seychelles has made it a popular destination for the famous and wealthy in recent years. Many celebrities vacationing there walk the streets without a second glance.
In the midst of all the speculation, Buckingham Palace urged the press to respect the privacy of the newlyweds. Details of the honeymoon are expected to be made public at its conclusion.
