London - Palace officials say Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton
have departed on their delayed honeymoon.
William's office declined to say where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
have travelled and for how long, but stressed on Tuesday that the couple has requested that their privacy is respected during their honeymoon.
The couple decided against an immediate overseas honeymoon
after getting married in London at Westminster Abbey on April 29. Seychelles
They opted instead to spend their first weekend of married life at their home before William returned to military duty.
The palace says the prince has taken two weeks leave, but would not specify how much of that time will be spent on his honeymoon. British media
on Tuesday widely reported the honeymoon had kicked off in the Seychelles islands.
