Back when they wed, Balmoral was used primarily in the Autumn as a retreat, since Victoria returned from isolation there. Even if other members had been there in July,there were certainly other homes on the property that could have offered them privacy. Abergeldie castle,which is close to Balmoral was also leased by the family at the time, and a popular getaway of Mary's father in law.

It also doesn't seem uncommon for royals to have borrowed homes from others to honeymoon. Mary's son George V and Elizabeth BL honeymooned at a home in Surrey which belonged to Margaret Greville (who the Greville jewels entered the BRF from)before going to Scotland.

Sandringham was the country home of the Prince of Wales. George had an attachment to it. He spent several years before he became King living in York Cottage on the Sandringham grounds. He wasn't a sophisticated man. He liked shooting and stamp collecting. He wasn't going to do a grand tour of the continent as a honeymoon (Mary would have loved that).

Also Mary engagement to Eddy was arranged by Victoria just like her marriage to George was. So it not like her and Eddy were a love match on their own and then a great tragedy happens and he dies. Plus Mary through out her marriage to George bowed to her husband's wishes so if he wanted to go to Sandringham that is where they went.

According to the book about the royals and Sandringham, 'Sandringham Days,' the Yorks had their honeymoon at 'Bachelor Cottage', their future home, thereafter known as York Cottage, which had been made ready for them.

They arrived 'half dead' from heat and the strain of the wedding. However soon the weather changed with heavy rain and they were stuck in this rather pokey house with not much to say to each other.

Within ten days of the wedding the Prince and Princess of Wales arrived at the 'big house', accompanied by the princesses Maud and Victoria and members of the Danish Royal family. They paid many visits to the Yorks, disturbing the peace of the honeymooners, even coming to breakfast with them.

Mary was engaged to Albert, but not married him, 'cause he died young, as far as I know.

Prince Albert Victor (Eddy.)? Yes he died young, but within a little more than a year Princess Mary (of Teck) had married Eddy's younger brother George, the Duke of York, who later became King George V.

Princess Anne and her first husband Mark Phillips were lent the royal yacht Britannia for their honeymoon cruise in 1973. They cruised around Barbados and other Caribbean islands. Unfortunately for a lot if the time there were violent storms and 20ft waves making them very seasick!

An new three part series about high-end travel was made by the BBC this year, and the first episode was shown on Australian TV last night.

One of the luxury locations covered in episode one is North Island, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their honeymoon.

The narration even mentions that "William and Kate" spent their honeymoon there.

This is a private island with one hundred and fifty staff servicing a maximum of eleven people in twenty-two villas.

Fantastic scenery of course, and quite a few staff members explaining this and that about the resort.

If you check this show out - and it looks like the episode is online - be aware that the program cuts in and out about different places. There are several segments about North Island, and also the main island of the Seychelles, throughout the episode.

"The Millionaire's Holiday Club"|9Now - episode 1.

Mary and Frederik - Ol Donyo Laro Lodge in Kenya.

(From the book by Trine Villemann, who also says they were able to use another Dane's private plane to get there.)

Cosa Travel

Feature: The Pride of Kenya – Robb Report


There have been ongoing legal disputes about the property in more recent years. I think it was also burnt down at one stage, but since rebuilt.

A report from a few weeks ago - mentioning the Danish, and also the Dutch royals.

Towards the end is a mention of Queen Margarethe throwing the wedding reception for a member of the family who owned it -

haakon and MM spent time in the US for their honeymoon. apparently the couple had visited NY days before the 9/11 attacks, but they were in montauk, NY (in Gurney’s Inn, on Long Island) on the day of the events. they had to be relocated to another hotel when 9/11 happened.

apparently esben, MM's brother, travelled with them to offer moral support to MM, at those times having phobia of flying: "Mette-Marit’s brother, Espen, who is a pilot, also travelled with the newlyweds. He offered moral support to his sister who, as it has been well documented, has a fear of flying and won’t get on a plane without her brother by her side."
