LONDON (Reuters) - Prince William will resume his job as a helicopter pilot next week before going on a honeymoon abroad with his new wife, royal officials said on Saturday.

The prince and 29-year-old Kate Middleton, who dated for nearly a decade, married in London's Westminster Abbey on Friday in a ceremony that captivated the world.

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen not to depart for a honeymoon immediately," St James's Palace said in a statement, referring to the couple by their new titles bestowed by Queen Elizabeth.

"The locations of both their private weekend before The Duke returns to work and their future honeymoon, which will be overseas, will not be disclosed in advance," it said, adding that the couple will spend the weekend in Britain, although not at their Welsh home.

Earlier on Saturday, the newlyweds flew out of Buckingham Palace by helicopter.
