It’s official! An estimated 1/3 of the world’s population, or 2 billion people, watched Prince William and Kate announce their love for one another this morning. From the high fashion that went on with her gown design by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen to her choice of the Cartier “Halo” tiara, one thing remains the same: “being in love never goes out of style.” And after planning a wedding, the one thing that we still have to look forward to is a relaxing honeymoon. While most couples choose their honeymoon based on location, for the royal couple, Prince William and Kate, privacy is far more important.
