First Lady Jill Biden was heard on a hot mic Monday as she spoke about an exotic honeymoon destination days after her granddaughter’s wedding.
The first couple’s granddaughter Naomi Biden, 28, and Peter Neal married on Saturday at the White House, and it appears, based on the First Lady’s remarks, that the Seychelles, the Indian Ocean nation, is where they will honeymoon.
“So they honeymooned…in the Seychelles,” the first lady was heard telling an unidentified person Monday at a “friendsgiving” event for troops at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, North Carolina.
The details of President Biden’s granddaughter’s apparent post-wedding plans do not appear to have been previously reported.
The White House and a spokesman for the first lady did not immediately respond to the Post’s requests for comment or offer an alternative explanation for the remark.
The remote Seychelles archipelago off the east coast of Africa is primarily where Prince William and Kate Middleton vacationed royal honeymoon back in 2011. Her post-nuptial holidays took her to a luxury villa on Seychelles’ exclusive North Island, where accommodations cost north of $6,000 a night.
On Saturday was Naomi’s wedding at the White House taboo for the press. The White House also took the extreme step Closing access to public parks directly across from the South Lawn to keep prying eyes away from the wedding of the 80-year-old President’s granddaughter.
Naomi is the daughter of the president’s scandal-plagued son, Hunter Biden, and his ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle.
Among the 250 guests The couple’s wedding was reportedly attended by former Senator Chris Dodd and former President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen’s daughter Samantha, who went to college with Naomi.
The wedding was only the 19th to take place on the White House grounds.
