Residents of the Caribbean island of Nevis are getting excited, because it’s rumoured that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will honeymoon there after their wedding.

The idyllic island, which is packed with white sand beaches covered in palm trees, and has waters filled with stingrays and sea turtles, is in the running for a post-nuptial holiday – and not just because of its secluded, sunny location.

Prince Harry first visited Nevis in 1993, staying with his mother, Princess Diana, at the Montpelier Plantation and Beach. He loved it so much that he visited again in 2016 as part of his official tour on behalf of the Queen.

On his one-day visit to Nevis two years ago, he released baby sea turtles into the sea on the very appropriately named Lovers Beach, one of the most secluded (and romantic) beaches in the world.

The island vibe is chilled out, with no all-inclusive resorts or ports stuffed full of cruise ships. It’s covered in lush greenery and has a historic atmosphere, perfect for a romantic getaway. There’s exotic wildlife and a volcano to explore.

Greg Phillip, Nevis Tourism Authority CEO, is filled with quiet, positive anticipation about the Royal couple’s decision. He said: ‘As it is one of the most romantic islands in the world, we are quietly confident that Nevis’ guaranteed privacy will attract the royal newlyweds.’
