Peony Lim's Stunning Photos of the Maldives

Above the Maldives
Peony Lim (

As mentioned in a previous post, William and Kate purportedly had the Maldives on their short list of honeymoon destinations, although ultimately they ended up choosing the Seychelles. It isn't hard to see why this string of islands was in the running, or why they have now decided to visit. Peony Lim has very graciously allowed me to share her photos from her beautiful lifestyle blog. She has recently been to the Maldives, and I thought you all might like to see some of her incredible photos from the islands, so you have a sense of the breathtaking ocean-scapes that William and Kate have been enjoying! Check out Peony's post Flying Over the Maldives for some beautiful photos guaranteed to warm the chilliest of March mornings. Flying in a seaplane is now officially on my bucket list!


  1. Stunning! I can completely understand why the Duke and Duchess would want to go to an incredible place like this for a holiday. After your last post concerning the number of holidays the young royals take each year, it is easy to see their vacation schedule does not appear to be an excessive number of weeks.
    With this new post, the beauty of the area, the time of year and with the tightly scheduled down under trip on the horizon, I think many would understand the reason for the trip.
    Must add: found your site recently and absolutely love it. Thanks for all the great info.

    1. Isn't it gorgeous? It definitely has me dreaming. I hope they had a great time--I can't imagine they didn't! Word is they left today. So glad you found us! Hope you come back often. :)

  2. I was hoping there would be pictures of them at Maldives!

    1. Pictures may turn up. Pap shots from holidays like this always have a slight lag, because the photographer has to sort of shop about to find his price and terms. Given how many people knew they were there from the start, we may very well see some snaps. There is hope! :)

    2. I think I read on Twitter that before they departed they met the Press. So probably in return for nice treatment of this Maldivian excursion the paps will get some photos wait and see.A.
