Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may return to Botswana for their honeymoon.
The “Suits” star and the royal prince are tying the knot in a few weeks. Thus, their honeymoon destination has become one of the hot topics today.
According to Vogue, Prince Harry and Markle may visit a place close to their hearts – Botswana. The couple has traveled to the African country on their third date. They visited it again last summer. In fact, the “Horrible Bosses” star spent her 36th birthday there.
Botswana is a special place for the groom-to-be. In fact, he considered it his “second home” because it was among the first places he visited after Princess Diana’s death.
“This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world,” Prince Harry said about the place.
The royal is very fond of the South African nation that he included a diamond from Botswana on Markle’s engagement ring. Prince Harry popped the big question to the “Remember Me” actress while they were roasting chicken.
“It was so sweet and natural and very romantic. He got down on one knee,” Markle recalled. “As a matter of fact, I could barely let you finish proposing. I said, ‘Can I say yes now?'”
“There was hugs and I had the ring in my finger. I was like, ‘Can I give you the ring?’ She goes, ‘Oh, yes! The ring!'” Prince Harry added.
Vogue noted that the royals have different choices when it comes to their honeymoon destinations. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip did not leave the UK.
The monarch and the prince consort spent part of their honeymoon at a retreat Hampshire owned by Prince Philip’s uncle Lord Mountbatten where they “spent days talking deer.” Then they headed off to Balmoral’s remote Birkhall.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoyed 10 days to Seychelles. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stayed at a $5,000-plus a night private villa with their own butler. The couple has visited the place in 2007 and fell in love with it.
On the other hand, Prince Charles and Princess Diana did a two-part honeymoon. They stayed at the estate of Balmoral after a two-week cruise around the Mediterranean on the Royal Yacht Britannia. However, the late Princess of Wales hinted that it was not that enjoyable.
Princess Diana told Andrew Morton that Prince Charles preferred reading books and painting than spending time with her. “I remember crying my heart out,” she said. “I was so tired, for all the wrong reasons.”
