There was a big surprise over the weekend when the palace announced, seemingly at the last minute, that Price William and his bride Kate would postpone their honeymoon. It ended a lot of ridiculous speculation by the media about where the couple would be spending their honeymoon--in such outlandish locations as Kenya, the Virgin Islands and Lizard Island, off Australia.
There was also speculation that they may have been planning to head to Jordan for their honeymoon. If there was any truth at all to that, then I would guess it was postponed because the UK government was made aware of the impending attack on the Osama bin Laden compound, and so the UK government advised the royals to postone in case of any terrorist reprisals while they were there.
However, I think the press had it all wrong on the royal honeymoon locations. After all, why trust a bunch of drive-by journalists and paparazzi when it comes to expert honeymoon travel advice?
Thats where I come in. You learn a few things over the course of working on 20 guidebooks.
There is perhaps a very vague Jordan connection to all this, but it really has nothing to do with Kate's schooling in Jordan--well, not directly that is. But make no mistake, the honeymoon won't be in Jordan.
I happen to know some exotic resort spots favored by the royals in Asia--which aren't on the media's radar--and I have a good guess which one they might choose. While I'm not going come out and cough up the country or the name of the resort directly--I have no desire to drive them away, nor ruin their honeymoon by throwing the paparazzi at them--I am however considering dropping a few hints and posting a few discreet photos of the resort. Once the honeymoon is over, if I am right, then those hints and photos will be crystal clear... stay tuned
