William and Kate to honeymoon in... Jordan?

You mean that they couldn't find a better place to honeymoon than Jordan (Hat Tip: My Right Word)?
Where Kate Middleton and Prince William will spend their honeymoon has always been categorized as top-secret information, but Britain's Telegraph newspaper has reported that the couple is "believed to be planning a trip to Jordan for their post-wedding getaway."

The newspaper says the newlyweds will have a two-week-long honeymoon after the royal wedding.

The romantic break will be split in two, with one half consisting of a week-long tour of southern Jordan, touring the country's most famous sites, including the ancient city of Petra and the Wadi Rum desert valley.

The plan is for the royal honeymoon to start April 29. Jordan is thought to be Kate and Will's preferred foreign destination, according to the Telegraph.
My Right Word has more details from News of the World (paid subscription required):
A source close to the Jordanian Royal Family told us: "The King has known the British Royal Family all his life and knew he could offer the newlyweds privacy unlike anywhere else in the world. It is completely isolated and hidden from prying eyes. After sharing their wedding with billions of others it will suit William and Kate perfectly.

"The King has made his summer palace impregnable. His father King Hussein suffered 37 assassination attempts on his life and over the years the Aqaba palace has been turned into a fortress."

Recent unrest across the Middle East, including Jordan, has forced royal officials to line up other possible honeymoon locations but Aqaba is top of Wills and Kate's list. Towers manned around the clock by armed guards and palm trees line miles of beach where Wills and Kate will be able to sunbathe unseen and enjoy water-skiing and tennis. The warm, clear waters of the Red Sea will be perfect for Kate, who lived in Jordan for part of her childhood. She was spotted buying bikinis in London this week.

A helicopter pad on the villa's roof will allow the newlyweds to travel to visit some of the wonders Jordan offers tourists, including Petra, the city carved into a mountain in 1200BC.
The hotels in Eilat (across the Red Sea) are SO much nicer, and you don't have to worry about a coup in Eilat.

But watch out for the Grad rockets.

As long as Hussie is on his throne, I'm sure that the couple's privacy is assured.

Personally, I would have selected Venezuela for the same advantage.
