No-one is quite sure where Prince Harry will be whisking off his new bride Meghan after tying the knot this month. So in a nod to the royal wedding, here’s our list of possible honeymoon destinations for the newly weds – and for each we’ve picked an exciting home for sale!

The African bush
Namibia in south-west Africa is hotly tipped as the place where Harry and Meghan will head for some intimate ‘us’ time after their big day in Windsor. In fact, speculators have even pinpointed the couple’s likely lodgings – the Hoanib Valley Camp in the north-west of the sparsely-populated country.

Fancy a new adventure running this guesthouse in Namibia’s capital, Windhoek?

Harry knows Namibia, famous for the vast Namib desert and abundance of free roaming wildlife, from a holiday with his previous belle Chelsy Davy in 2008, and later from a conservation trip in 2015.

Another Safari-themed African option could be Botswana, somewhere close to Harry’s heart and where he sourced the diamond for Meghan’s engagement ring. That said, the two of them visited the country earlier this year and how many people honeymoon somewhere they’ve recently been on holiday?

Meanwhile, there are whispers the newly-weds might be headed to the lush foothills of Rwanda, perhaps lured by the chance to get up close to a silverback or two, and try some of the highly acclaimed local tea!

Indulgent Italy
Meghan’s Instagram activity during a recent trip to Italy revealed just how fond she is of ‘la dolce vita’ (she has since closed her social media accounts).

This chic penthouse in the centre of cool Capri comes with stunning views

She and a select group of girlfriends spent time on the Amalfi Coast, rubbing shoulders with the global jet-set and soaking up the sights, sounds and scents of chic Capri and Positano. This exclusive stretch of coastline, with its stunning scenery, private cliff-hanging properties, international fashion boutiques and swanky restaurants, dishes up luxury, romance and culture in equally heady measures.

Still in Italy, could Tuscany also be a contender for the couple’s cosy post-nuptial break. The famous region’s vine-carpeted landscape, beautiful architecture and rich culture, not to mention its passion for food and wine, should be highly attractive to Meghan, who was born and raised in California and is said to be a bit of a wine aficionado, so would find the Chianti area especially appealing.

Covert corner of the Caribbean?
The stunning beaches, tropical vibe and choice of all-inclusive luxury resorts have made the Caribbean a perennial favourite with honeymooners, so why not the royal couple? Two islands could be in the running, namely Barbados and Nevis.

Harry has experienced the fun side of Barbados, having visited several times to play polo – he fell of his horse there once. And he was there on behalf of the Queeen in 2016 to celebrate the island’s 50th anniversary of independence, when he met pop star Rihanna. The island’s glamoros west coast, home to the famous Sandy Lane Beach, is an established celebrity hang-out, where A-listers prefer to own homes and often head for some winter sun.

Meanwhile, less prominent but no less appealing, Nevis is rumoured to have thrown its hat into the ring. The smaller of the pair of islands that form Saint Kitts and Nevis, it’s under-the-radar status arguably makes it a strong contender. But perhaps a more compelling case is the fact it was a favourite with Princess Diana, who took Harry and Wills there for a holiday in 1993. Harry returned as part of his 2016 tour. Untouched by high rise blocks or large resorts, exclusive Nevis oozes old-world charm, complemented by virgin beaches, untouched rainforest, discreet luxury hotels and classy fine-dining establishments.

Private island in the Philippines, anyone? Just 10 mins from the mainland…

Why not the Philippines?
Meghan once included the Philippines on her holiday wish-list (apparently another of her social media posts) and admittedly it would make an interesting alternative to those other well-trodden Asian honeymoon destinations, Bali and the Maldives. It was the archipelago of Palawan, a Filipino province comprising nearly 1,800 islands, in particular that caught her eye.

One resort there, Amanpulo, has all the right credentials for catering for royal guests. It occupies the private island of Pamalican and can be reached via a one-hour direct flight from Manila. Dubbed the most exclusive resort in the Philippines, luxury cabins there look out on to pristine white beaches and the turquoise sea, below which is a virgin reef, while untouched rainforest forms a tropical backdrop. In fact, it’s similar to the destination William and Kate chose for their honeymoon in 2011, when they booked the North Island in the Seychelles all for themselves. Could Harry have similar plans to his brother’s for Amanpulo. Who knows – for now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
