After months of intense planning and the huge spectacle of a wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton have officially left for their romantic honeymoon.

According to the BBC, Clarence House confirmed their couple's departure on Monday.

"We are not confirming, and we are not commenting, on speculation on where they may be going on their private honeymoon, we are just confirming that they have gone," a spokesman said, adding, "The couple have asked that their privacy be respected during their honeymoon."

Though the exact location of their getaway will not be released, the UK's Daily Mail reports that the newlyweds have jetted off to a private island in the Seychelles, located in the Indian Ocean.
