Prince Harry and Meghan Markle honeymoon in Antigua unlikely


Prince Harry and Meg­han Markle could honeymoon in Africa or the Caribbean after Saturday’s wedding, with Botswana likely top of the list.

The couple knows the southern African country well, with Harry reportedly whisking his fiancee away to holiday there last year to mark her 36th birthday.

The trip came a year after the pair’s famous holiday in the country, where their love story began after meeting on a blind date.

The prince has revealed how they bonded in Africa. “I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana and we camped out with each other under the stars … she came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic,” he said.

Ms Markle’s engagement ring features diamonds from the collection of Diana, Princess of Wales, and a stone from Botswana.

The US actress spoke about their special relationship with the African country as she described the significance of the stones in her ring from Harry. In the engagement interview, she said: “To be able to have this — which sort of links where you come from and Botswana which is important to us, and it’s, it’s perfect.”

The Caribbean could be another honeymoon destination for the couple and they already have an invitation from the Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, who made the offer during Harry’s 2016 tour of the West Indies.

Buckingham Palace has released an image of the hand­written document in which the Queen consents to the marriage.

The Instrument of Consent image was released a week before Harry is to marry the US actress in St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The document features a design to the left of the text that incorporates a red dragon, the symbol of Wales. The design to the right features a rose, the nat­ional flower of the US.

Under British law, the first six people in line of succession to the throne must obtain the Queen’s permission. When Harry was engaged, he was fifth in line but has been bumped to sixth with the birth of Prince Louis last month.
