From there, they transferred on a helicopter to a private island, where it is believed they will stay in a secluded villa for 10 days.

The couple were left their Anglesey home yesterday, laden with luggage, and Clarence House confirmed they had left on their honeymoon today: ‘We are not confirming, and we are not commenting, on speculation on where they may be going on their private honeymoon, we are just confirming that they have gone.’

‘The couple have asked that their privacy be respected during their honeymoon’ a statement concluded.

It has been rumoured that not even Kate knew where William was whisking her away to, and that he planned the entire trip as a surprise.

The royal pair had just a small window to fit in their romantic break, before they start their first official joint tour, which will see them visit California and Canada for ten days.
