Prince William and Kate Middleton have reportedly arrived at their honeymoon destination -- the tropical island nation of Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.

The couple -- now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- had been delaying the honeymoon following their April 29 wedding while Prince William went back to work as a Royal Air Force rescue pilot.

The royal couple arrived Tuesday in Seychelles aboard a private jet and were then flown to a private island retreat via helicopter, British media reported. St. James's Palace confirmed that the couple had departed on a private honeymoon trip, but did not disclose further details.

Britain's Telegraph newspaper quotes a spokeswoman for the country’s Ministry of Tourism as saying: "We are obviously delighted that Prince William and his new wife have decided to honeymoon in the Seychelles. We know they will want some peace and quiet and there couldn't be a better place for them to find it."

The picturesque island country off the African coast is the same location where William and Kate celebrated their renewed romance after a short breakup in 2007.
