So where should Kate and William head for after their wedding? Here are just some suggestions...
With the big day over, the honeymoon is where Kate and William can be ordinary mortals like the rest of us.
This is a time where lasting memories of romance and happiness are made and so its as important as every other aspect of a wedding and maybe for the royal couple even more so. After all, when all the fuss dies down most of the trips theyll be taking will be burdened with royal duties.
So where could they (and those like them) go to not only get away from it all, but to immerse themselves in romance?
Chloe Prince (how fitting!) at private plane travel company Jeffersons Jet (www.jeffersons.com) suggests one of their luxury private aircraft could whisk the couple away to one of the worlds most romantic cities, Venice, where they could stroll the canals and take a Gondola ride.
Its a romantic hotspot and at this time of the year the climate will be perfect for them, she says.
Theyd have champagne and canaps on board the jet and time to themselves before touching down and taking a water taxi to a beautiful hotel. Then there are all those beautiful monuments and art galleries (Kate studied History of Art at St Andrews of course) for them to stroll around too."
Victoria Fenton at Kuoni Travel (0161 817 6550) in Manchester suggests they travel further afield:
Although they are royalty, everyone wants to have the wow factor on their honeymoon and feel special and William and Kate are no exception.
They couldnt fail to still get that if they went on our Elewana sky safari - This combines wild, rugged game rich plains of Northern Tanzania with exquisite accommodation, luxurious amenities and superb attention to detail.
Nestled on Pember Island off the coast of Zanzibar, William and Kate can finish the honeymoon in style enjoying Fundu Lagoon in a spacious suite with private deck, plunge pool and magnificent views. With amazing tent-style rooms sprinkled along the seafront and soft white sand and snorkelling on their doorstep this is the perfect way to relax and enjoy barefoot luxury and Crusoe style tranquillity with superb service.- a million miles away from their usual lives...now when did you say they want to come and see us?
