Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Reportedly Debunked Rumors That They Honeymooned in Namibia

But where DID they go? !

Updated 06/27/18


Since well before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's May wedding, the world wondered where they'd spend their honeymoon. Even now, weeks after the pair returned from their trip, they still have yet to reveal whether they went to rumored places in East Africa, Canada, Ireland, or somewhere in between. But this week, while attending the Queen's Young Leader Awards ceremony, Prince Harry reportedly did confirm one place he and his new wife didn't visit on their post-wedding vacation.

Mavis Elias, a young activist from Namibia who was honored at Tuesday's event, told Hello! that she chatted with Harry at the ceremony and asked whether he had visited her home country on his honeymoon, as was a rumored destination back in March. "No, we didn't go to Namibia. I'm not going to say where," Harry reportedly told Elias, who added that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "are very engaging and they are looking forward to working with the people across the Commonwealth."

Though Meghan and Harry seem to be set on staying tight-lipped about their honeymoon location (which is totally their right, of course!), that hasn't stopped the speculation. Most recently, in mid-June, sources claimed to E! News that the newlyweds had visited two unspecified countries in East Africa, where they reportedly went on safari and engaged in "outdoor adventures."

Before that, TMZ's sources reported that the duke and duchess had headed across the pond to Alberta, Canada, for their romantic getaway. Though the purported insiders claimed that Harry and Meghan had stayed in the luxurious Outlook Cabin at Jasper National Park's Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge during their time in Canada, a spokesperson for the resort quickly shut down the rumors, confirming that the royals had not booked a stay in the lodge.

Still other sources previously told ET Canada that the royal honeymoon took place in Ashford Castle on the shores of Lough Corrib in Ireland. Those rumors, however, were simply fueled by the fact that some visitors to the castle had been barred from entering and had noticed increased security in the area. At this point, we have as good a chance of figuring out where Harry and Meghan spent their honeymoon by spinning a globe and pointing at any random country as we do of hearing it from the newlyweds themselves.
