Prince William won’t be getting any special treatment from the RAF for his honeymoon. He is allowed just two weeks for the break, which may be in the UK.

It s a far cry from the three-month honeymoon his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana enjoyed travelling around the world in 1981.

But William will be popular with his Services colleagues. The Armed Forces have been told they will get his wedding day off as a public holiday. The MoD has confirmed that all Britain’s 177,000 servicemen and women are eligible for the April 29 break unless they are required to be on duty . - Daily Mail
