Pippa, hubby escape to Learmonth
Swimming with whale sharks may well have been on Pippa Middleton’s honeymoon agenda, after the famous bride and her billionaire husband landed near Exmouth last week.
After checking out of luxury hotel COMO The Treasury on June 5, Ms Middleton and husband James Matthews were spotted at Perth Airport emerging from a black Range Rover and boarding a 12.40pm Qantas flight to Learmonth Airport.
Ms Middleton — sister of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge — smiled at waiting journalists and photographers, telling them “we’re having a wonderful time”.
After disembarking the plane with about 70 other passengers at Learmonth, about 36km south of Exmouth, the newlyweds waited for their luggage before being driven away in a four-wheeldrive. They headed to their accommodation at the remote beach-side safari camp Sal Salis, on the shores of Ningaloo Reef.
The couple arrived in Perth on June 4 from the Northern Territory. They were married three weeks ago in Englefied, in the English countryside.
