Prince Carl Philip and his new wife Princess Sofia of Sweden are celebrating their recent wedding with a romantic honeymoon in Fiji. The couple reportedly left Stockholm for the secluded getaway just hours after their wedding reception ended on 13 June.
Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reports that the couple flew business class and had layovers in Britain and Switzerland before arriving in Los Angeles, where they boarded another flight to Fiji. Carl Philip and Sofia then travelled via a private aircraft to a luxury resort on one of Fiji's small islands.

Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia are on honeymoon in Fiji
The Swedish Royal Court has declined to comment on where the newlyweds are spending their honeymoon, but it is believed they will return to Sweden on Thursday following a 12-day break.
"The honeymoon will last just 12 days – from the 13th to the 25th – when Carl Philip will drive a race," Johanna Lejon, royal reporter at Svensk Damtidning told People.
The Prince, who has raced in the Scandinavia Touring Car Championship for two years, is due to participate in a twilight event at Mantorp Park in Sweden on Thursday.
The couple tied the knot on 13 June
The couple will also have the opportunity to meet their new nephew Prince Nicolas when they return home. Carl Philip's younger sister Princess Madeleine welcomed her son on 15 June just two days after attending the wedding.
Carl Philip and Sofia said their vows in a stunning wedding ceremony at the royal chapel in Stockholm on 13 June. The couple were joined by their close friends, family and a host of European royalty including the Earl and Countess of Wessex for their special day.
The first official portraits of the newlyweds was released by the Swedish royal household, Kungahuset, just 24 hours later. One snapshot shows the elated newlyweds standing arm-in-arm with another, while other family-based portraits depict Sofia and Carl Philip with their parents and siblings shortly after their wedding ceremony.
