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.
