Newlyweds Prince William and Kate enjoy secluded UK weekend away

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending their first weekend as a married couple at a secret location in the UK. The newlyweds have chosen to delay their honeymoon so that Prince William can return to his job as an RAF helicopter pilot on Tuesday.

Possible locations for their romantic weekend, according to the Sunday papers, include various royal residences, such as Balmoral, Windsor and Sandringham. They have also cited the Scilly Isles and the Isle of Mull as other possible getaways.

The honeymoon date and location have yet to be revealed. But Clarence House confirmed the couple would not be spending the weekend at their home on Angelsey, close to the RAF base where Prince William works as a search and rescue pilot.

Speculation continues about the honeymoon, with favourites including Africa, in particular Kenya, where William proposed to Catherine last year.

Jordan, where Kate lived for two years with her family as a child, has also been touted as a possibility.

A secluded Caribbean island - or an Australian island - might be a safe choice.

Friday night’s wedding party at Buckingham Palace with 300 friends and family have been reported.

Millie Pilkington, the couple’s private photographer, described the party’s atmosphere as “absolutely extraordinary” and that the couple were “buzzing with happiness”.

She described the wedding speeches by best man Prince Harry and Kate’s father Michael Middleton as “absolutely hysterical”.

The Middleton family returned to their home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, on Saturday.
