If you want to experience the Royal Wedding first hand, it might be a little late to book your tickets to the UK…
Lucky for you, we’ve put together a list of royal wedding inspired trips for your next holiday so you can extend the royal vibes for as long as you want!
Here are six royally-approved destinations to inspire your next holiday!
Love Blossoms in Botswana
There is truly no more uniquely romantic destination than Africa, a favourite of the Prince. The natural beauty and crimson sunsets provided Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a magical setting to fall in love on their spontaneous 5-day date to Botswana – he really one-upped the classic dinner and a movie!
Capture some of the romance of their first holiday with wild game viewing experiences and discovering the hidden world of the Delta’s waterways.
Soak up Botswana’s magic with Adventure World’s Okoavango Splendour itinerary and experience the unique wetland that is home to South Africa’s best game viewing and one of the world’s most significant and pristine environments.
Visit St George’s Chapel
The chapel where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will tie the knot is sure to be a popular spot to visit (and pretend you were one of the lucky guests) once they have wed.
Get the ultimate royal treatment with Trafalgar’s leisurely London Explorer, where you’ll hit royal hotspots in London, Windsor and Oxford, before stopping by Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate were married in 2011 and Buckingham Palace for a gin or two with the Queen.
Travel Like a Royal through Britain
We may have lost our last chance to be a British princess with Harry firmly off the market but that doesn’t mean we can’t treat ourselves to something just as luxe. Take your travels to the next level on Luxury Gold’s British Royale itinerary and meet iconic personalities that will bring your late night Netflix binges of The Crown to life.
Meet the late Queen Mother’s favourite bagpiper in Edinburgh and head to Windsor Castle to meet a Military Knight.
Buckingham Palace may not have an open-door policy but we’ve got the next best thing – a chance to meet a real-life royal, by joining the Duchess of Northumberland for a private tour of her beautifully restored gardens at her home, Alnwick Castle.
A Minimoon in Ireland
Minimoons are trending, with many couples opting for a short trip following the wedding in a nearby state or country before a bigger trip once funds are back to normal (hello two holidays!). Although this isn’t the case for the Royals, their strict schedules mean they are short on time.
Multiple reports suggest the couple will head to Ireland for a few days following their wedding. Treat yourself to a taste of how the other half live and stay in an 800-year-old Irish castle where royals have roamed the halls.
Ashford Castle offers its fair share of royally inspired activities. Guests can learn the art of falconry, take up the Equestrian sport or throw on the whites and play tennis or a spot of golf. If some royal downtime is more your speed, you’ll love their lavish beds – even King George V has slept here!
An Australian Honeymoon
With the couple travelling to Australia for the Invictus Games in October, many expect (and hope!) the newlyweds will extend their trip beyond their royal duties. Whether they opt for our endless coastlines, or head into the red centre to discover the outback you can follow their lead.
Inspiring Journeys’ The Ultimate Territory Adventure in Style will take guests through the majesty of the iconic Northern Territory – exploring Kakadu’s ancient gorges, spectacular wetlands and unique wildlife as well as taking a dip in the pristine waters of Gunlom Falls and Wangi Falls with all the premium comforts Harry and Meaghan would expect.
They’ll meet descendants of Aboriginal people who have lived in Australia for over 65,000 years and hear fascinating insights about their culture. The splendour of the Red Centre and its natural wonders including magnetic Uluru, the mystical domes of Kata Tjuta through to the windblown Walpa Gorge will be unveiled.
Toast an Uluru sunset with sparkling wine, experience a spectacular sunrise and have unique and decadent dining experiences under the stars.
Head home with Meghan
No doubt the genetically blessed royal couple will be heading back to the bride’s hometown of Los Angeles to celebrate their vows with friends and family and take in some Californian sunshine.
Experience the best of the West Coast locale with Contiki’s LA to the Bay trip and spot some of Meghan’s Hollywood co-stars on the coast.
Explore LA before heading off on a jaunt around Meghan’s home state from the iconic Golden Gate Bridge to the spectacular Yosemite National Park. A winter escape to Cali is now 15% off, so what are you waiting for?
