In 1984, Kate and her family actually moved to the country's capital, Amman, where her father worked for two and a half years. This connection to the region may explain the couple's destination choice, giving Kate a chance to serve as tour guide. It's rumored that the bride-to-be speaks basic Arabic.
The jaunt will include a week-long tour of southern Jordan, along with Lawrence of Arabia-type sightseeing trips to the ancient city of Petra and the Wadi Rum desert valley.
But fear of terrorism and the possiblity of Al Qaeda locations within the Middle East country mean some necessary, decidedly unromantic measures, such as protection officers surrounding the newlyweds.
Besides Jordan, the royal couple will also reportedly stay close to home, vacationing at one of the royal estates, possibly Balmoral, during their two-week getaway.
