With the excitement for the Royal Wedding now over, talk has turned to where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will honeymoon.
And according to reports, their chosen destination is not too far from Meghan’s homeland.
The newly-appointed Duke and Duchess of Sussex have picked the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge in Alberta, Canada, according to TMZ, choosing the 6,000 sq. ft. Outlook Cabin.
The Outlook Cabin has been nicknamed The Royal Retreat due to the fact it is a favourite holiday destination for the royals.
King George VI and Queen Elizabeth first stayed there in 1939 whilst Harry’s grandparents Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip holidayed at the cabin in 2005.
According to TMZ, the Canadian resort has ordered some ‘gear and goodies it doesn’t normally keep on hand’ for the royal couple.
The website also reports that both British and Canadian security will be on hand to keep a close eye on the couple when they visit.
First opening in 1930, the cabin was destroyed by fire in 2000 and has been recreated from the original’s exact floor plans.
The website of the lodge says, “Supreme comfort is present in every detail of the sumptuously comfortable bedrooms, enclosed verandas and majestic stone fireplace that warms both the dining room and great room – the perfect place to entertain family & friends or celebrate a special occasion.”
While it is unclear when the newlyweds will embark on their honeymoon, a spokesperson for the couple said it will not be as soon as they may have hoped following the wedding.
A spokesman said, “The couple will be going on honeymoon but not straight away. They have their first engagement as a married couple in the week after the wedding.”
That ‘first engagement’ was of course Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebrations, which was held at Buckingham Palace just days after the couple wed at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor on May 19th.
