Seychelles idyll for Royal Couple

seychelles royal coupleThe British media reported this morning that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge--the two young lovebirds you may know as William and Kate--arrived in the Seychelles earlier today to kick off their long anticipated honeymoon.

After touching down at Seychelles International Airport in Mahé, the Royal Couple boarded a helicopter and took off for a private, unidentified island.

The location of the Royal honeymoon has been a matter of intense speculation in the UK over the last several weeks. Jordan, the Isles of Scilly, and Barbuda have all turned up as potential destinations.

The Seychelles, a cluster of islands in the Indian Ocean, are a top upscale destination, with tourist inflows coming mostly from Europe. Surely the Royal Couple's decision to honeymoon in the country will not damage the Seychelles' reputation as a playground for the rich.
