Meghan Markle and Prince Harry did indeed quietly slip off on their honeymoon earlier this month but not to Canada, as some outlets reported. According to E!'s source, the two went to East Africa and visited more than two countries. They went on safaris, laid around in the sun (hence Markle's Trooping the Colour tan), and apparently went on what E! described as "outdoor adventures."
"It was the perfect break and blend of their passions," the source said. "Restorative and the perfect holiday before starting a very busy second half of 2018."
The Palace isn't likely to ever confirm Markle and Harry's honeymoon location, as it was a private vacation. As royal expert Omid Scobie told ELLE.com before, “Kensington Palace have said that the honeymoon is very much a private trip and they won’t be releasing details to the media. The couple shared so much during the wedding and now is the time for them to enjoy some privacy."
Still, Scobie seemed pretty certain from his own sources that the two would go on a trip to Africa. “Africa has played a huge role in Harry and Meghan’s relationship-it was the place they fell in love [Harry took Markle to Botswana after only two dates], the place they vacationed before the engagement [Harry and Markle went to Botswana again for Markle's 36th birthday last August] and even where Harry bought the center diamond for Meghan’s ring," Scobie said. "It’s the one side of the world where Harry says he feels like he can be himself. He has laid roots there and has a huge amount of love and respect for the African continent. The couple have been keen to explore other countries in Africa, and I’m certain we will see them do that on this honeymoon. I hear that Meghan has been keen to go on a beach holiday with Harry, so I can definitely see them by the sea. I don’t think they’ll be back in Botswana or on safari as they’re keen to explore countries on the continent that they haven’t seen before."
