  • The relaxed newlyweds have thanked Seychelles officials for a 'special 10 days'

    Prince William and Kate Middleton have returned home from their luxurious 10-day honeymoon in the Seychelles, a spokesman for the pair has confirmed.

    In a statement, the relaxed newlyweds thanked Seychelles officials for ‘a memorable and special 10 days,’ following their glittering nuptials on April 29th.


    The lucky couple jetted off for some R&R at the exclusive destination earlier this month, with rumours suggesting that not even Kate knew where William was whisking her away to, and that he planned the entire trip as a surprise.

    Royal officials confirmed the couple had departed for honeymoon, after a car laden with luggage was spotted leaving their Anglesey home, but declined to reveal exactly where William and Kate were headed.

    Word soon got out that the pair were bound for the Seychelles – where they had any number of exclusive private islands to choose from.

    Although Fregate, Desroches and North Island have all been touted as possible locations, as they touched down in the UK yesterday, it’s still not yet known where the royal couple were based.

    But it’s thought William and Kate were so delighted with the peace, quiet and absolute privacy they received during their stay, that on their last day they invited the Seychelles coastguard ashore to personally thank them for their efforts in ensuring they were undisturbed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ‘thoroughly enjoyed their time together, and they are grateful to the Seychelles government for their assistance in making the honeymoon such a memorable and special 10 days,’ a Clarence House spokesman said in a statement earlier today.

    Meanwhile, the head of the Seychelles tourism board revealed the honeymooning couple ‘left happy and clearly content with their stay.’

    Foreign minister Jean-Paul Adam added: ‘We are truly honored that Prince William and his wife chose to return to Seychelles for this special holiday and we are proud to have been able to offer them a peaceful and private getaway.’

    Now it’s back to the day job for the lucky pair.
