Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia Enjoying a Romantic Honeymoon in Fiji: Report
From the palace to the polo field, Princess Kate and son Prince George are breaking tradition and changing the Royal rules. Subscribe now for an inside look at their adorable adventures only in PEOPLE!
The couple left Stockholm just a few hours after their all-night wedding reception ended, according to Swedish newspaper, Aftonbladet. The newlyweds reportedly flew business class on a regular flight with a stopover in Europe. Carl Philip and Sofia landed in Los Angeles and then embarked on another flight to Fiji. They were then escorted to the private aircrafts that take guests to luxury resorts on the small islands.
The Royal Court in Stockholm hasn t commented on the couple s honeymoon plans, but the secluded resort in Fiji is just the first stop of their honeymoon, according to Aftonbladet.
The Pacific Island country of Fiji consists of more than 300 islands and is a favorite hideaway for celebrities who want the ultimate private vacation. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher, Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott and Britney Spears and Kevin Federline all chose the romantic setting for their honeymoons.
But Carl Philip and Sofia won’t be vacationing for too long – they have planned a short and sweet getaway due to the prince s busy racing schedule.
“The honeymoon will last just 12 days – from the 13th to the 25th – when Carl Philip will drive a race,” Johanna Lejon, royals reporter at Svensk Damtidning, tells PEOPLE.
The 36-year-old prince has raced in the Scandinavia Touring Car Championship since 2013, and he will buckle up for a twilight event at Mantorp Park in Sweden on June 25.
The couple will also have the chance to meet their new nephew, Prince Nicolas, when they return.
Carl Philip s younger sister, Princess Madeleine, 33, welcomed the healthy baby boy just days after the royal wedding.
