Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Are Planning a Pre-Valentine's Day Getaway
Next week, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tour of the United Kingdom continues, with a visit to Scotland on the eve of Valentine's Day.
Kensington Palace shared the news of the February 13 trip this morning on Twitter, revealing that Prince Harry and Markle would be visiting not only Edinburgh Castle but also Social Bite, an organization focused on ending homelessness throughout Scotland, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse for a reception celebrating the Scottish Year of Young People.

We don't yet know if the engaged couple will stick around Edinburgh to celebrate Valentine's Day in the Scottish capital, but we're certainly keeping our fingers crossed that Markle will wear a striking red outfit at the royal outing in honor of the holiday.
Either way, Prince Harry better have something romantic planned.
“Hook, line and sinker, I am such a sucker for Valentine’s Day,” Markle wrote on her lifestyle blog The Tig, as People pointed out. “Without fail, every February 14th, I wake up feeling like I’m immersed in a Robert Doisneau photo, waiting with bated breath to be dipped into a kiss. This is all happening in black and white, of course. And in Paris, if I had my way."
Paris isn't guaranteed for the soon-to-be royal this year, but we're predicting Harry comes through in the gift department. Markle isn't looking for anything too over the top. She writes, "in terms of gifts, be it breakfast in bed, a sweet love note, or a single flower, it really is the thought that counts.”
