Wills and Kate's £4k honeymoon villa

2011-05-11 16:00
London - Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton are staying in a £4 000-a-night villa in the Seychelles for their honeymoon.

The royal couple - who wed on April 29 at London's Westminster Abbey - have flown out to a private island off the east coast of Africa for a 10-day romantic break where they will be pampered with not only "the ultimate luxury", but also "complete privacy".

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "The island is very popular with celebrities who want the ultimate luxury but complete privacy. Everyone there is on honeymoon, so William and Kate will not be disturbed.

"They will be able to fully relax in private and just enjoy each other's company. There is not a great deal to do there - but that is the point."

Riding bikes

Boasting a four-poster bed overlooking the Indian Ocean, a feature bath carved from marble, plunge pools and plush outdoor sofas amid the golden sands of the tropical island paradise, the couple delayed their Seychelles honeymoon so William could fulfill his duties as an RAF search and rescue pilot in Anglesey, North Wales.

Meanwhile, the newlyweds - who flew to the Seychelles in a private jet - have reportedly turned down the offer to travel around the island in an electric golf buggy in favour of riding bikes.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "William wants Kate to be completely relaxed and for it to be just the two of them. This is the perfect place.

"They hope to turn off their mobiles, shut out the modern world and reflect. This will be the ultimate relaxing break for them."

    So what? They are not the only ones to pay these sorts of rates. For goodness sakes leave them alone. It's their honeymoon. Is it expected that they would stay in some pondokkie at R200 a night per person sharing? They would have no privacy if they stayed somewhere cheap. Privacy comes at a price.

    ... (they)have reportedly turned down the offer to travel around the island in an electric golf buggy in favour of riding bikes" So how much privacy have they got for 4K a night?

    These are only rumors that they are in the Seychelles.... no one knows outside the inner circle!! Just a load of hog wash the media wants us to read.

    These are only rumors that Wills and Kate are in the Seychelles. Only the "Inner Circle" know which excludes us and the media. So I don't believe the "hog wash" the media are printing!
