“Where will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle go on honeymoon?”
It’s always fun to speculate, and at Turquoise we have put together a list of where we think this modern couple could enjoy the first few weeks of their married life…
What could be a better romantic break in the sunshine than sailing round the stunning Spice Island of Grenada, followed by the Grenadines? Fantastic snorkelling, bustling island towns, romantic picnic lunches, total relaxation and charming Caribbean locals could draw Harry and Meghan…
Dramatic coastlines, country retreats and delicious wineries are perfect for the adventurous Meghan and Harry, looking to add style and elegance to a trip with loads of character and some of the best opportunities to spot African wildlife. Top it all off by travelling through to Zambia, taking a flight over the spectacular Victoria falls and lunch at the world’s most exclusive picnic spot Livingstone Island.
Perhaps the newlyweds will be looking for beach paradise, which they’ll certainly be getting in Raratonga and Aitutaki. These lush islands are also the home to the Cook Islanders culture, customs and friendly service. With stars in the night sky as your ceiling, soft sand between your toes and crystal-clear lagoons as your swimming pool- the Cook Islands offer a honeymoon which is a little slice of heaven.
If the royal couple are after destinations that will steal their hearts, then Vietnam and Cambodia are a total cultural discovery. The food, the sounds, the history and the heavenly island of Song Saa- if Harry and Meghan are looking for lifelong memories then Vietnam and Cambodia really are the places to go.
Prince Harry might like to follow in his brother’s footsteps with a trip to the total sanctuary found at one of the most exclusive resorts in the world-North Island. Add another layer of eco-luxury to a trip like this and twin it Six Senses Zil Payson for ultimate Seychellois romance.
The warm welcome of the Jamaican people makes it a real stand out honeymoon destination. Blissful beaches, fresh spicy food, rugged coastline, history and classic luxury service are all perfect for a couple looking to really escape our hectic European lifestyle.

Without a doubt, New Zealand is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

Glorious scenery, peaceful hideaways and world-class cuisine might tempt the royal couple.
Even for the royal and famous, Thailand is one of the most tempting South East Asian destinations for its huge variety. Sunbathe, party and visit temples on Koh Samui, and discover your own hidden beaches and quiet local gems on Koh Phangan.
Flying from the cooler climate of the UK after what will surely be a stupendous wedding, Miss Markle might like to visit her family back on her home turf in sunny California.

Beautiful Botswana holds a very special place in the hearts of Harry and Meghan.

Harry has also visited Mozambique before to support the HALO trust demining charity- and the couple have stated how their passion for good causes brought them together. History aside, if they want to return to these countries then the magic wilderness of Botswana and pristine waters of Mozambique could be a potential winner!
