Chloe says: The newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may be heading to the Middle East for their honeymoon. I can tell you I’ve been to Jordan, and I loved it!

Prince William & Kate Middleton are about to jet off for quite the excursion! Even though the Palace won’t confirm, the Sunday Telegraph reports that the Prince and his bride will vacation in Jordan, where Kate lived as a child.

I must say that out of all the places to go in the world, this is a fabulous choice. The couple are expected to stop off at Petra and the Valley of Wadi Rum. Do you remember the famous scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, where Harrison Ford rides through the narrow canyon and discovers the Holy Grail? That was filmed in the ancient city of Petra, which is said to have been around since the 6th century BC.

Petra is one of the most spectacular places in the world, more reason why it’s been chosen as one of the new seven wonders of the world. Wadi Rum is a gorgeous desert valley about an hour and a half South of Petra, and again, it’s some of the most breathtaking views you’ll ever see.

Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton were stationed in the country’s capital of Amman when working for British Airways from 1984 – 1986.

But there have also been reports that the couple may vacation in the private island of Mustique or at good friend Richard Branson‘s gorgeous Necker Island in the Virgin Islands. No matter what unbelievable destination they decide upon, we can’t wait to see Kate in all her new honeymoon getups that she purchased with her mom.
