I think that they went there for the privacy first, and beautiful tropical venue second.

His family is in the hotel business. This place was not chosen by throwing a dart at a map.

Mirabel is like me. Museums, plays, restaurants, a really velvety hotel robe....

I think for Pippa, no paps is the main concern for her honeymoon.

I feel the same way. I love a beautiful beach but I need more than that for seven days. But then, I'm not a newly wed.

Is it true that George got a telling off from Kate for misbehaving during the ceremony? I was exactly his age (one day difference) when I was the flower girl at my uncle's wedding 23 years ago, and I wandered across the aisle and was scooped up by my dad, much to the delight of everyone there. My mom told me that even adults get fidgety during long wedding ceremonies.

I only know what was written by the Daily Fail, so take it with several grains of salt. Apparently, AFTER the wedding, when walking out of the church, George was playing around and stepped on Auntie Pippa's train. Kate gave him a talking to, he cried for a minute, calmed down and was seen smiling and waving in the car on the way to the reception.

Personally, I dislike weddings where there are small children in the wedding party. Any wedding is too long for a small child. I've been to several weddings over the years where one or two of the small ones refuse to even go down the aisle. They cry and throw a fit and people think it so adorable. I think it distracts from the reason we are all there. I remember, many years ago, when I declined to be an attendant in a friend's wedding because she insisted on having four children under five years old in the party. There were to be about 14-15 attendants all together so I wasn't really missed. I didn't go to the wedding at all but I heard it was a disaster with that many attendants and all those kiddies.

It also seems to be a tradition in the British upper classes to have a gaggle of small children as attendants. I tend to agree that though they look adorable they take a great deal of superintending, even when not misbehaving (and some littlies behave very well.)

Camilla's small granddaughter became upset with the crowds and the movement of the carriage on the way back to BP from the Abbey at William and Kate's wedding, and it was only the fact that Harry (who was in her carriage with some of the attendants) had brought a couple of small toys in his pockets and gave her one, that settled her down. She refused to be parted from it! And we all remember little Grace Van Cutsem's face on the balcony!

Yep, the roar of the "people" would have given any gladiatorial arena a run for its money. It was loud and I think, scary for the little ones.

I agree. Going to mexico at Christmas but going to a place where ruins and such not just beaches. Other than school In Cuba, my travel has never been tropical. I prefer museums, galleries, churches. My dream hobeymoon would be an art cruise in Europe.

Harry must have been glad he didn't pull a wiggly worm instead of Kate's ring out of his cuff during the ceremony. Harry's uniform didn't have pockets so he had to carry the ring in his cuff.

DM is lying again. George didn't step on pippa's dress. Charlotte was emptying her basket with flowers behind pippa, that's why kate is behind pippa. George did nothing.

Also George's "so called trantum" lasted for 4 seconds.

Here’s the video, Royal children play as Pippa leaves church

Start at 2:30 for the “tantrum” and “telling off” but the incident really starts at 2:37 and is over by 2:40.

They had pictures from so many angles from 4 seconds and made a story up about a three year old boy and his mother.

I didn't actually look at the video so I was just repeating what I read. George did cry for a second or two but I knew it wasn't a real tantrum because he was smiling and waving a second later from the car window. All in all, he seemed to be much better behaved than William was at Uncle Andrew's wedding.

The two older boys were probably upsetting to George. They seemed to know each other and were slightly rambunctious.They those kinds of situations are hard on children, especially good little boys which George seems to be. Kate was on top of the whole situation, she is a good mother

How right you are. Newly wed, yes alone, sun, beach, few clothes. Married 30 years, a tad different.

We have beautiful beaches in Australia, but the heat of the sun, the sand grit that seems to get on towels and anything you eat or drink, the necessity of going in the sea every twenty minutes or so to cool yourself off, lathering yourself and others with sun-block, makes it all not my idea of a good time. When I go overseas I prefer sightseeing holidays. However, to each his own and the Matthews' obviously like sun baking and beach life.

Didn't really focus on the children before, this is amusing! Never noticed George darting back in the gate and off to the right, coming back when his mother waved at him to do so.

Also amused at the camera click that caught Kate scolding George, when it was just a facial expression as she talked to him.

I imagine, after an hour trying to sit quietly in a church the children were feeling quite giddy when given first free reign to the open air and behaved very well considering.

Young and newlywed couples are just starting off exploring their world together as a married couple. The blessing of a long marriage results in being perfectly happy and contented to stay home with each other in old, comfortable clothes in matching recliners.

The surf, the sun and the beach is secondary on a honeymoon and available should the couple decide to come up for fresh air every now and then. After what seems like a lifetime of coming up for fresh air, its the places chosen to go to that holds all the attraction.
