Last weekend, the married couple re-emerged in public together for the first time in weeks to join the queen at the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony. The event also marked Markle's debut on the Buckingham Palace balcony. 

So, what were they up to between May 22, when they joined Prince Charles for a birthday celebration, and this week? According to one source, they were secretly on their honeymoon in Africa. 

As the insider told E! News, the couple traveled into East Africa and visited more than two countries, where their activities ranged from safaris and outdoor adventures to lying in the sun.

"It was the perfect break and blend of their passions," our source shared. "Restorative and the perfect holiday before starting a very busy second half of 2018."

Judging by Markle's compliment to her life partner, it sounds like their first month together has been nothing short of blissful.
