Spending Valentine’s Day alone? You’re not the only one because apparently so is Meghan Markle. The Duchess, 37, and Prince Harry will be spending the day apart due to royal duties.

According to Kensington Palace, the father-to-be, 34, is expected to leave for Norway for an engagement that pertains to his association to the Royal Marines. “The Duke of Sussex, Captain General  @RoyalMarines, will visit Exercise Clockwork to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the operation in Bardufoss, Norway on Thursday 14th February,” Kensington Palace tweteted.

Considering Harry was appointed Captain General in 2017, this is something he really can’t miss. “The Duke of Sussex will meet military personnel living and training on the base, view some of the specialist outdoor severe weather equipment and training that is conducted at Clockwork and talk with expert aircrews and engineers,” added the royal family’s Twitter account. This will also be the Duke’s first visit to Joint Helicopter Command.

2019 will mark Harry and Meghan’s first Valentine’s Day together as both a married couple and parents-to-be. While it’s unfortunate they will be spending the special day apart, it’s no surprise considering how hectic a royal’s schedule can be. In the past, they’ve had to miss plenty of important personal events because of their royal engagements, especially now that the Duchess is expecting.

For instance, the former Suits actress was unable to attend her best friend Priyanka Chopra’s extravagant wedding to Nick Jonas in December 2018. Instead, Meghan stayed put in England. As her pregnancy progresses, her traveling is minimized, which makes sense as to why she’s been staying local since she returned from the royal tour in late October.

As for V-day, we wouldn’t be surprised if the royal couple celebrates the holiday once Harry returns home. After all, by the looks of these two, they celebrate their love every day.
