Royal honeymoon begins

accreditation

Prince William and his new wife Catherine have gone on honeymoon, Clarence House has said.

It did not reveal the couple's destination, saying it was private.

The Duke of Cambridge returned to his job as an RAF rescue helicopter pilot following a long weekend break after the 29 April wedding, and has now taken a fortnight's leave.

Although the prince has taken two weeks' leave, Clarence House did not say how long would be spent on his honeymoon.

"We are not confirming, and we are not commenting, on speculation on where they may be going on their private honeymoon, we are just confirming that they have gone," a spokesman said.

British media on Tuesday widely reported the honeymoon had kicked off in the Seychelles islands.
