With Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding just weeks away, one aspect of the royal wedding remains a closely guarded secret. Where will the royal couple spend their honeymoon? We caught up with the people in the know over at Tropical Sky, here are a few of the contenders:

The Seychelles is a great choice for a May honeymoon and a private island such as the Enchanted Island Resort is perfect for couples seeking plenty of privacy.

St Lucia: The royal couple would feel right at home in a suite at the Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia. The ‘sanctuaries’ here offer an abundance of space and privacy, with bedroom, living room, infinity pool and jaw-dropping view flowing seamlessly into one. This exceptional retreat has been celebrated for its unique architecture, with scenic bridges connecting the 29 enormous sanctuaries to amenities including an art gallery and celestial terrace. In-sanctuary dining is offered round the clock, so you need never leave. A week’s stay costs from €4,129pp, including flights, transfers and daily breakfast.

Africa is rumoured to be high on the couple’s honeymoon wish list, specifically Namibia, which offers a safari experience unlike any other. Adventurous honeymooners who’ve already ticked off the ‘big five’, can spot endangered black rhinos, springbok and cheetahs in the wild here, all of which have adapted to the desolate desert environment. Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is situated in the private NamibRand Nature Reserve and offers unparalleled luxury and even has its own observatory with state-of-the-art telescope, perfect for stargazing. From €375 per person per night, the lodge can be booked as part of a tailor-made honeymoon.

Though the Maldives is well trodden as a honeymoon destination, there is a brand new resort that is anything but conventional, much like the royal couple themselves: LUX* North Male Atoll, which opened in January, is located on the six-hectare picnic island of Olhahali, accessed only by luxury speedboat or seaplane. The resort feels luxuriously remote, making you feel like the only people on earth. Gone are the traditional thatched-roof villas, instead, this innovative resort offers ultra-modern penthouse residences, each with private pool, separate living room and 120 sqm reef terrace – a magnificent private deck elevated five metres above and with views out over the resort’s lagoon. 7-night stays start from €4239pp.
