This is not fake news
Did you enjoy Valentine’s Day? Did you share a fancy M&S meal deal with your other half, or get cosy on the sofa with your own tray of Krispy Kremes?
However you spent February 14th, the chances are you also had a flick through Instagram only to be inundated with ‘bae did good’ posts, sprinkled with snaps of sparkling new engagement rings.
But one couple that the world was watching – neither of whom are on social media – was Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
They spent the day apart, due to the fact that Harry was on official royal business in Norway as part of his role of Captain General of the Royal Marines. He was there to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Exercise Clockwork operation, which is ‘the traditional name of the annual winter exercise, based in one of the world’s most demanding environments 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle, which has trained over 16,000 Royal Marines and Royal Navy sailors and airmen since 1969’ according to Kensington Palace.
However, romance was (sort of) in the air thanks to some British troops who set up an igloo ‘shrine’ for the couple, complete with pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on their wedding day.
Harry was not only surrounded by snaps of his wife, but was also treated to candles and romantic music to really set the scene. Lol.
Check out his reaction:
How cute is this?!
We’re sure that Harry absolutely loved the surprise, and Meghan is probably chuckling about it, too.
What a lol way to spent their first Valentine’s Day as a married couple.
