As we here at AOL Travel have reported, much attention has been paid to the location of the royal honeymoon over the past few months. On Saturday, Buckingham Palace announced that the newlyweds would postpone their honeymoon. Now comes a new rumor that the duo will head to the Seychelles for a 10-day trip.

The newlyweds are rumored to be spending their honeymoon in a 4,000-pound a night villa on one of "the most beautiful and romantic islands in the world," the Daily Mail reports.

Later this month, Prince William and Princess Catherine will fly by private jet and then travel by helicopter from the mainland to a private retreat, which the Daily Mail speculates is an exclusive island on the Seychelles.

According to the Daily Mail, two Scotland Yards officers checked the location to ensure its safety. The paper also claims Kate is not aware of the honeymoon destination.

The Seychelles are known for their beauty, as well as great snorkeling and diving, which is a favorite activity of the couples. (Back in March, Prince William commented to the Australian press that he loved scuba diving and had "always wanted to dive the Great Barrier Reef."

A Clarence House spokesman told the Daily Mail: "The couple have asked the media to respect the privacy of their honeymoon, therefore we can neither confirm nor deny speculation."

according to news reports, Kate cannot be addressed as princess as you state in your article as she is a commoner.

Arteest, you and justme are both correct, Catherine is both the Duchess of Cambridge in her own right, and as as Prince William's wife she is Princess William of Wales. By which title she should be addressed would depend upon the ocasion and how she or tradition decides she should be styled. I have not yet heard that the Queen has bestowed upon her the additional and much greater honor of an HRH precedent. That was granted Diana when she married the Prince of Wales but revoked upon their divorce. An HRH would not be something that would follow naturally a generation removed from the throne, although it could. The Queen can do whatever she likes. alwaysanobie is of course a complete idiot. The notion that William somehow surrendered his title of prince when he accepted his duchdom is too silly to comment on.

She is *not* a Princess. She's a Duchess.

actually, she is Princess William if they want to call her a Princess, HRH works too. But she is also a Duchess. All those titles, it does get to be a bit complicated.

Actually, she would only have been Princess William if William had remained Prince William instead of being made a duke. They are now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, although the Queen has indicated that she will be relaxed about Catherine being called Princess Catherine, even though that is not her actual title.
