Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be heading to Fairmont Jasper Park to spend their honeymoon in Alberta, despite previous reports suggesting they would be.
Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, who tied the knot on May 19 at Windsor Castle, were rumoured to be staying in a 6,000 sq. ft. Outlook Cabin called “The Royal Retreat”, according to TMZ.
Sources told the site that the resort had “ordered some gear and goodies it doesn’t normally keep on hand” for the newly crowned Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with them also insisting British and Canadian security would be involved whenever they arrived.
However, a spokesperson for the resort has since insisted: “Though Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has a longstanding history of serving as a royal retreat, we can confirm that the couple is not currently booked for a stay.”
“We are declining further comment at this time, as our top priority is always the safety and privacy of all of our guests. We appreciate your understanding.”
This wouldn’t have been the first time Jasper Park Lodge, which is hidden in the middle of Jasper National Park, will have had some royal visitors, if the rumours were true.
King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother stayed there in 1939, before the Queen and Prince Philip paid a visit in June 2005.
Canada obviously holds a special place in Meghan’s heart, as she lived in Toronto for years filming the TV show “Suits”.
The likes of Anthony Hopkins, John Travolta and Bill Gates are also said to be fans of the picturesque location.
Kensington Palace refused to comment when approached by ET Canada.
