(Seychelles News Agency) - Newlywed fashion designer and socialite Nicky Hilton has returned to the United States on Friday after celebrating her honeymoon with a combination safari-beach holiday in Botswana and the Seychelles.
Nicky, who is the younger sister of well-known socialite Paris Hilton and the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of the Hilton group of hotels, wed James Rothschild last week Friday in a fairytale wedding at Kensington Palace in London.
The groom, who is a member of the wealthy Rothschild family, met his future wife in Italy at a wedding in 2011 and the pair has dated since then, announcing their engagement in August last year.

The pair quickly jetted off to Botswana, where they enjoyed safari tours in the African bushveld, and then reportedly hopped across to the 115-island archipelago of Seychelles, situated off the eastern coast of Africa for some private time relaxing in luxurious tropical surroundings.
It is believed that the couple stayed at the exclusive North Island private resort, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, also spent their honeymoon in 2011.

However, Nicky, who has already started using the name Rothschild, was willing to share a few snaps of her honeymoon adventures with her Instagram followers - all 950,000 of them - posting two pictures of her safari holiday in Botswana and two of her time relaxing in the Seychelles.
The 31-year-old heiress also posted an Instagram photo on Friday to mark her one-week wedding anniversary, sharing a picture of herself in her elaborate Valentino wedding gown kissing her new husband.
