Harry and Markle, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, respectively, were married on Saturday at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, England, in a ceremony that drew audiences around the world.

The couple's honeymoon plans haven't yet been announced. According to the British tabloid The Sun, Harry and Markle are expected to delay their post-wedding vacation and will instead attend their first royal engagement sometime next week.

But speculation about possible destinations has ranged from Rwanda to Hawaii. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton, who were married in 2011, journeyed to the Seychelles for their honeymoon.
