No spooning on Valentine’s Day for this royal couple!
Kensington Palace has broken hearts globally with the announcement that newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be spending their first Valentine’s Day (and last Valentine’s Day before the royal baby) together.
Kensington Palace announced in a tweet that Prince Harry will be taking part in an event on Feb. 14., which involves him leaving England.

He will be visiting Exercise Clockwork in Bardufoss, Norway, which according to Kensington Palace, is “one of the world’s most demanding environments 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle.”
“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,” Kensington Palace shared in a tweet.
Prince Harry’s role as Captain General of The Royal Marines will come into play as he meets military personnel who live and train six months of the year on the base. The event is being hosted by the Norwegian Armed Forces.
Duty calls, but it begs the question, how important is it to spend your first Valentine’s Day as a married couple together?
