What could possibly follow a fairy tale wedding? How about a magical honeymoon at a seaside resort at the other end of the world?
Monaco’s Prince Albert and his bride-to-be, Charlene Wittstock, are planning to honeymoon beside the Indian Ocean after their July 1-2 wedding in his principality, say sources at the landmark Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, South Africa.
The royal couple will attend a July 7 International Olympic Organizing Committee banquet in their honor at the hotel, say sources.
‘There’s no other place like it anywhere in South Africa,” a source familiar with the couple’s plans tells PEOPLE. “ ‘South Africans have been coming here for generations for wedding celebrations, and it attracts international celebrities as well. It is a very special place.”
