Osama 'delays' royal honeymoon

London - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's delayed honeymoon may have more to do with their security than William's eagerness to return to work, reports The Daily Mail.

According to security experts, the decision to delay the honeymoon could have been made due to the US government's efforts to capture the fugitive Osama bin Laden.

The Daily Mail reports that President Barack Obama authorised the US special forces attack on bin Laden at the exact time the royal couple were married in London on April 29.

The following day the couple announced that they were returning to Anglesey so that Prince William could return to work.

One military analyst said a warning from the US government about the special forces strike could have been behind the decision to delay the couple's getaway.

A palace spokesperson dismissed the claims that the assassination raid had anything to do with the delay. He said the decision was personal.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to take their 10-day honeymoon at a £4 000 per night villa on an Indian Ocean island. Apparently Kate is not even sure of the exact destination of her honeymoon.
