Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip
Where: Broadlands, Hampshire and Birkhall, Scotland
Following their 1947 wedding, the 21-year old Queen and 26-year old Duke of Edinburgh set off to Broadland House in Hampshire, which was owned by Prince Philip’s uncle. And they weren’t alone–the Queen’s favourite corgi, Susan, tagged along. After their stay in the English countryside, the newlyweds travelled to Birkhall lodge on the family’s Balmoral Castle estate in northern Scotland.
Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales
Where: Mediterranean cruise
A few days after their 1981 fairytale wedding, Charles and Diana jet-setted to Gibraltar to board the Royal Yacht Britannia for a cruise in the Mediterranean. Unfortunately, even a backdrop as beautiful as the Greek islands didn’t spark romance. In a letter to her personal secretary Princess Diana wrote “The honeymoon was a perfect opportunity to catch up on sleep.”
Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall
Where: Birkhall, Scotland and the Greek Islands
After the Prince’s second wedding to long-time love Camilla Parker-Bowles, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall honeymooned at Birkhall lodge on Balmoral and then continued on to the Greek Islands.
