Prince William and Kate Middleton Plan Jordan Honeymoon





The London Telegraph (Abridged)

The couple will honeymoon for two weeks and are understood to have booked a week-long tour of southern Jordan, taking in some of the country’s most famous sites, including the ancient city of Petra and the Wadi Rum desert valley.

The newlyweds will leave London for their honeymoon the day after the wedding on April 29, and are believed to be considering several options for their break, with Jordan thought to be their preferred foreign destination.

They may also spend part of it at one of the Royal estates, possibly Balmoral, the Queen’s estate in Scotland.

While the couple will be hoping for some privacy following their marriage, which will be attended by 1,900 guests and watched by a global television audience of two billion, they are expected to travel with a bolstered team of royal protection officers if they head to Jordan, to ensure their security.

Parts of the country remain volatile after the recent unrest across the Middle East and there have been protests in the capital of Amman this week calling for political and economic reform.

Prince William, 28, and Miss Middleton, 29, are believed to have booked a tailor-made private tour of southern Jordan, including a visit to the Dead Sea the ancient city of Petra.

They are also expected to take part in a riding excursions to Wadi Rum, where it is thought they will stay in a luxury tented camp.

The couple are also expected to visit the capital Amman, where Miss Middleton and her family moved in 1984.

Her father, Michael, worked there for two and a half years, and Miss Middleton attended a nursery school in Amman from the age of three, where she is believed to have learned to speak basic Arabic.

They may also pay an unofficial visit to King Abdullah and Queen Rania of Jordan who are close friends of the Royal Family and will be among the wedding guests.

A royal aide said: “We will not be identifying which country the couple may be going to for their honeymoon.

“After the wedding, we will announce when they have gone away for their two-week break, where they hope to enjoy some privacy.”
