Considering we have an upcoming royal wedding in our futures, there seemed no better time than to take some travel inspiration from our favourite royals and their honeymoon destinations. Cruising in Europe proves a popular choice for many royal couples, with many opting for an island retreat to celebrate their newlywed status. Whether you would be more inclined to stay at a family property (like Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip) for a week, or head to Tahiti like Princess Caroline of Hanover and Philipe Junot, these royal-approved honeymoon destinations are worth considering for yours. No royal wedding in your sights? They make pretty good office escapes, too.
Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III of Monaco
A glamorous honeymoon for a truly glamorous woman, Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier went for a seven-week boat cruise around the Mediterranean for their post-wedding trip.
Prince Charles and Princess Diana
After marrying after just one year of dating, Charles and Diana headed to Scotland to sail aboard the royal ship of Britannia — a popular choice for royals.
Prince Frederik of Denmark and Mary, Crown Princess
After marrying in 2004, Australia’s own Mary jetted off with Denmark’s Crown Prince, Frederik to Tanzania for their honeymoon.
Princess Caroline of Hanover and Philipe Junot
As the eldest daughter of Grace Kelly, Princess Caroline was set to have a classy honeymoon from the very start, heading to Tahiti with her banker husband.
Pippa Middleton and James Matthews
Ok, so they technically aren’t royals, but as the sister of a Princess, then we’re giving Pippa Middleton the thumbs up. Plus, the couple’s honeymoon was right here in Australia. Heading to some of our favourite spots in Sydney, Middleton and Matthews even went north to Kakadu.
