I have admitted it before, but I am going to reiterate: I love the British Royals. I have haunted the various palaces and the Tower of London. It is no surprise that I was thrilled when Prince William proposed to his college sweetheart. I even asked my very British husband to take me to London for the wedding. He said no. I did stay up late to watch it live so that I wouldn't miss the spectacle. After the stress of planning the perfect royal wedding, the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge jetted off sensational Seychelles for their honeymoon. You can honeymoon like Will and Kate at North Island Seychelles.
