According to a number of sources, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly chosen their honeymoon destination. The couple, who are set to wed on May 19 at Windsor Castle in England, will be jetting off to the Southwest African country Namibia for their post-marriage vacation, according to Travel and Leisure. Meanwhile, according to The Sun, the soon-to-be newly weds will likely be staying at Hoanib Valley Camp in Kaokoland, north-western Namibia, which is the world’s only Africa-wide giraffe conservation organization.
Southwest Africa has played a pivotal part in the couple’s love story. HRH Prince Harry took Markle on a surprise trip to Botswana for her birthday last August, just weeks after they went on a blind date so they could get to know each other. In the couple’s first TV interview following the news of their engagement, the Prince explains “We were really by ourselves, which was crucial to me to make sure that we had a chance to get to know each other. We camped out with each other, under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic.”
