We've just learned about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Valentine's Day plans—and sadly, it looks like they won't be together to celebrate their first V-day as a married couple.
Kensington Palace announced this morning that Prince Harry has a solo engagement, and won't even be in the country, on February 14, as his royal duties are taking him to Norway. He'll be performing his responsibilities as Captain General of the Royal Marines, a role he was appointed to back in 2017, after his grandfather Prince Philip stepped down from the position.
Harry will travel to Bardufoss, Norway to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Exercise Clockwork. The operation, based 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle, sounds like particularly grueling place to train. Since its inception in 1969, it's turned out over 16,000 members of the Royal Marines and Royal Navy. HRH is slated to meet with military personnel on the base, and learn about how they train for and contend with the severe weather.
Meghan's schedule, on the other hand, has yet to be announced for Valentine's Day. It's possible that she'll have her own engagements to attend to that day.
Events for Prince William and Kate Middleton have also yet to be announced for the 14th, leaving their V-day schedules theoretically open. Perhaps Meghan Markle will celebrate Valentine's Day as we all have, at one point: as a third wheel. (Of course, when in the company of royals, it's hardly a fate to be feared.)
