The Internet is abuzz on news that the Royal Couple has begun their honeymoon. The British press reports the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew to the Seychelles, an Indian Ocean island country about 1,000 miles east of Kenya.
Buckingham Palace won't confirm any details of their trip, and the newlyweds have requested the press respect their privacy. Considering the Seychelles' remote location, even the stealthiest paparazzo may be out of luck. A government spokesperson says William and Kate have vacationed in the Seychelles before. Among other things, the Seychelles is known for its biodiversity.
The 115 islands are home to the black parrot, the giant tortoise, and the coco de mer tree, a species of palm nicknamed the love nut because of the unique double coconut's shape which is said to resemble a woman's backside.
