The royal couple traditionally leaves for their honeymoon on the very day of their nuptials.


Kate Middleton and Prince William did away with a royal tradition on the day of their wedding, the British tabloid Express reports.

Kate and William spent their first night as a married couple in Buckingham Palace. This move by the royal pair surprised the fans all over the world.

The 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth and the 96-year-old Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh had their honeymoon in Broadlands, Hampshire.

In fact, Prince William went straight back to work. The Duke of Cambridge was a search-and-rescue pilot at the time of his wedding but devotes most of his time to his royal duties now.

The couple went for their honeymoon just ten days after they took the vows. They went to a private island in Seychelles. It is not known where the Duchess and Duke of Sussex spent their wedding night.


Markle and Harry soon returned to work which suggested that they didn't travel too far for their honeymoon.

It is interesting to note that the title 'Prince' or 'Princess' can only be used 'before' your name if you born into the role. It was never officially Princess Diana and it will never be Princess Kate. The same holds true for 'Duchess'.

When Diana got married to Prince Charles, her name was Diana, Princess of Wales, despite her immense popularity of 'Princess Diana.'

Technically, the correct way to address Kate Middleton is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Born Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, she didn't get the nickname Kate until her adolescence.

The internet still refers her as Kate Middleton and not Duchess of Cambridge. People search the term 'Kate Middleton' 823,000 times per month on average.

On the other hand, the query 'Duchess of Cambridge' is used just 90,500 times in the same timespan. The publishers will continue to use whatever name gets them the most views.
