It’s less than a month until Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot at Windsor Castle on 19th May – and royal watchers are already beginning to wonder where the couple will be jetting off to on their honeymoon.
Although Meghan and Harry have only released minimal details about their wedding day and subsequent celebrations, experts have started to make their predictions about where the couple will jet off to, with luxury holiday provider Sovereign declaring that sun-soaked Tuscany is likely to be top of the list.
Sovereign, who have narrowed down a list of eight of the most likely honeymoon options for the pair, noted that a big hint about the holiday could lie in the name of Meghan’s former lifestyle blog, The Tig.
The site was named after Tuscan red wine Tignanello, leading them to believe that the ‘down-to-earth but uniquely glamorous’ location could be the perfect place for Meghan and Harry to unwind after the wedding.
‘For a couple trying to ensure privacy without going over-the-top lavish, Tuscany seems the perfect destination,’ the brand explains, adding that the stunning 800-year-old Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco resort in the region would be an ideal choice of accommodation for the newlyweds.
Eight of the most likely destinations for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s honeymoon
Tuscany: Secluded, luxurious and a short flight from London
Botswana: Prince Harry and Meghan’s first holiday destination together
The Philippines: Said to be a top pick of Meghan’s
Tetiaroa Island, French Polynesia: Pippa Middleton’s honeymoon location from last year

Sovereign have estimated that the royal couple will take a 10-day break for their honeymoon, in line with general convention and the previous honeymoons of other members of the family.
Other possible destinations include Botswana, where the couple travelled to when they first started dating, and where a diamond for Meghan’s engagement ring was subsequently sourced, and the Philippines, which Meghan previously described as one of her ‘dream honeymoon destinations’.
