Princess Alice of Albany and Prince Alexander of Teck spent their honeymoon at Brocket Hall, near Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England.
George Lascelles, Earl of Harewood and Countess Marion went to Venice.


Princess Alice of Albany and Prince Alexander of Teck spent the first part of their honeymoon at Brocket Hall, which was lent to them by Lord Mountstephen. Brocket Hall was in Welwyn in Hertfordshire.

I found this video about Huka Lodge. Perfect for a honeymoon, peaceful, outlying, refined.

what a coincidence. i guess if it's good for QE then it's the place to go! i guess they met them to greet them and congratulate them after the wedding. how exciting yet daunting must it have been for maxima to meet the queen during her honeymoon! although by that point she had already been to several high profile royal events, including her own wedding, so i assume she knew everything she had to know protocol-wise.

The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima made a honeymoon in three stages:
- to Sankt Moritz in Switzerland, where the couple stayed at the châlet of "uncle Freddie" (Alfred Heineken)
- to Argentina, with visits to the family and to the immense countryside and nature
- to New Zealand (Huka Lodge), apparently having met the British royal couple

A true royal honeymoon, I would say...

There was never known exactly where they were after Jordan, but it is believed that they were in Asia and probably United States.
According to this article they were also in Fiji, in Wakaya Club and Spa (and later in 2012 again with their daugthers):

mexico

according to the Fiji Times they spent a week at a very exclusive and private club in Fiji, at the The Wakaya Club.

according to this article, king juan carlos asked his friend Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein to arrange the May 2004 honeymoon trip of Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia to Jordan, Thailand, and Fiji.

In 1893 Princes Mary of Teck and Prince George, Duke of York embarked for their honeymoon at Sandringham. I find this an interesting situation considering that Mary's first husband-to-be, Prince Albert Victor had died there.

It seems like it could be very possible that they both remembered Albert Victor with warmth, love and a lot of good memories. Just as HM stays at Sandringham until the anniversary of her beloved father's death has passed, perhaps at Sandringham both George and Mary felt the closer ties to someone that was near and dear to their hearts.

While I agree with the sentiment, it would still be odd. Albert Victor died 18 months before they married. And was Mary's fiancé when he died. Going to the home where her former fiancé died, on her Honeymoon, seems odd. Surely there were other royal homes they could have spent it at.

It would make sense throughout their marriage that they still used the house and felt close to him there, but the honeymoon?

We have to remember too that travel wasn't what its like now back in that time period. I would imagine their choices were pretty limited as to where to go. I'd guess Sandringham, Balmoral or Windsor Castle if they were to stay somewhere that belonged to family. As they were married in July, Windsor was probably out due to being too close to London. Balmoral was out because of the annual retreat to Scotland by the monarch so that left Sandringham open and relatively private and secluded for the newly married couple.

That's just my take on it. I really don't know for sure just what honeymoons actually entailed in the late 19th century.

It's an interesting observation regarding a couple having a honeymoon at the place where the former husband / brother died. Nonetheless, in that context it is no odder than the couple marrying the former husband-to-be's brother / the brother's fiancee.

Nowadays, people's emotions are somewhat different or at least expressed differently to what they were back in those days - sentimentality is a strange thing!
