Now that the royal wedding is over, everyone's wondering what's next for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Specifically, where are they honeymooning? While previous reports suggested the couple was returning to Africa for their post-nuptial vacation, a new TMZ source now believes that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are heading somewhere totally different: Canada.

 

According to the outlet, the newlyweds are going to Alberta (a province in Western Canada) and staying in the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. They've apparently booked the resort's Outlook Cabin, appropriately nicknamed "The Royal Retreat." The cabin boasts 6,000 square feet of space, which houses six bedrooms and six bathrooms—not too shabby! On top of that, the resort has reportedly ordered special "gear and goodies" for the couple while they're there.

While most people had their money on Africa, Canada isn't actually that surprising of a choice. As TMZ notes, King George VI and the Queen Mother, Queen Elizabeth, visited the Jasper Park Lodge in 1939. Queen Elizabeth II followed in her mom's footsteps and stayed there with Prince Philip in 2005, too. The accommodations are also famous for other notable guests, including John Travolta and Bill Gates.

 

Jasper National Park, where the lodge is located, is known for its natural beauty. If the rumors are true, the couple will be able to soak in all the splendor of the mountains, lakes, and forests the wilderness area boasts. Activities would likely include hiking and possibly camping—one of the duo's favorite activities.
