The honeymoon destination comes as no surprise. Harry and Meghan vacationed in a lodge in Zambia last year to celebrate Markle’s birthday and the diamond in her wedding ring was specially sourced from Botswana by the prince. "It was the perfect break and blend of their passions," the source revealed, adding that it was “restorative and the perfect holiday before starting a very busy second half of 2018."
A few months before the wedding, the royal couple announced they’d be delaying their honeymoon to fulfill their royal duties. On May 22 the couple attended Prince Charles’ 70th birthday celebration where they made their debut as a married couple.
