The Duke of Cambridge is returning to his job as a search and rescue helicopter pilot, just four days after his wedding.

William and his new wife spent a quiet weekend away in an undisclosed area of the UK after postponing their overseas honeymoon. They were expected to return home to Anglesey, North Wales, on Monday night.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman said of William's first day back: "It will be a normal day at work for him after the wedding, nothing special planned."

It will be a chance for William to thank his colleagues from the RAF for their special tribute on his wedding day however - the surprise helicopter fly-past as he drove his new wife the short distance from Buckingham Palace to Clarence House in his father's Aston Martin.

It is not yet known where or when the Duke and Duchess will be jetting off on honeymoon.

Speculation has been mounting about the destination, with Kenya, where William proposed, mooted as one possibility. A holiday in the Caribbean is the current bookies' favourite however.
