The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge honeymoon couple did in fact select the Seychelles for their honeymoon. ETN has independently confirmed this from a reliable source in the Seychelles. ETN agreed not to identify the name of the private island resort at this time.
The world has been asking where are the royal newlyweds spending their honeymoon? Following numerous articles about them being in Seychelles, eTN reporters called Alain St.Ange, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, to find out an official version on the matter.
Alain St.Ange referred to a statement he had made to the press association which said:
“We appreciate the time you took to find out the what was said or not said by Seychelles.
Our islands have always appreciated the fact that we hold good and friendly ties with Great Britain. As a former British Colony, we value our historical links and the bond between the people of Great Britain and the Seychelles that has come about because of this historical past.
“The quotes published about the royal honeymoon has not come from the Seychelles Tourism Board. They are simply fabricated quotes. As discussed, I only flew back into the country this morning after having been to the ATM [Arabian Travel Market] Tourism Trade Fair in Dubai and the INDABA Tourism Trade Fairs in Durban, South Africa.
“Seychelles is one of the few tourism destinations that promotes ‘personalized tourism.’ We can do that, because we value our visitors and give them space to be themselves. We do have many, many stars and famous personalities on a year-round basis who holiday in Seychelles, the mid-ocean islands called the destination of perpetual summer, but we never make statements on who is here, because privacy is what we guarantee.
“We have read all the comments about the royal honeymoon and can say that Seychelles watched the royal wedding on television, and the people of Seychelles joined with our President, Mr. James Michel, when he sent his congratulations message to the wedding couple and to the British royal family.”
The remarks from the Seychelles Tourism Board could have been expected, but it will not satisfy the curiosity of the international press. ETN can also confirm that no statements have been issued from the Palace in Great Britain with regard to the honeymoon of their newlyweds.
So is it the Seychelles, the must visited paradise islands in the Indian Ocean? Or is it somewhere else?
ETN has now confirmed – it is the Seychelles!
