The newlywed royal couple are *apparently* heading into the Canadian wilderness for their honeymoon—but don’t worry, they won’t be roughing it.
According to TMZ, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are going to picturesque Alberta to stay at the ~cosy~ Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, which is located within the hella gorgeous Jasper National Park. Per TMZ, the happy couple will be crashing in the property’s “6,000 sq. ft. Outlook Cabin” known as “The Royal Retreat.” The sizeable cabin means there will be plenty of room for Markle to escape Harry should he snore.
But don’t book a flight out west just yet. After TMZ reported the exciting news, Jasper Park Lodge released a statement saying that Markle and Prince Harry are NOT currently booked at the resort. The hotel declined to provide any further comment, as reported by the Toronto Star.
Harry & Meghan on honeymoon in Canada? Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge says TMZ. Nope. Try again. The only bit that’s right is that they are currently on honeymoon…

Other rumoured Harkle honeymoon spots include everywhere from Rwanda to Mexico, according to The Sun.
So why does TMZ think the pair are headed to Canada? Sources told the gossip site that the lodge “ordered some gear and goodies it doesn’t normally keep on hand” specially for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Paparazzi Bear repellent perhaps? Even though the luxury resort is super secluded, TMZ says that both British and Canadian security will be accompanying the royals for their stay. The outlet did not confirm the exact dates of their romantic getaway.
The Jasper Park Lodge is known for its incredible landscape and wildlife, including bears, elk and deer. It’s also a fave Canadian getaway for other members of the Royal Family: King George VI and Queen Elizabeth stayed there in 1939, and so did the Queen and Prince Phillip back in 2005.
As someone who once stayed at the lodge, I have one piece of advice to Markle and Harry should they make the trip: listen to staff when they tell you NOT to tour through the property’s woods in the dark. They aren’t joking about the wolves.
