Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to visit place where William and Kate fell in love
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to visit Scotland where Prince William and Kate Middleton met and fell in love.
Kensington Palace has announced that the couple will travel to Edinburgh on the eve of their first Valentine’s Day as an engaged couple. Meghan and Harry’s trip on 13 February will mark their first official joint visit to Scotland.
Harry, who became Colonel-in-Chief of the Royal Marines in December 2017, and Markle will be officially welcomed to the city by the Royal Marines Scotland Band. During their visit, they will have the opportunity to meet members of the public, learn more about organisations that work in the local community and nationwide, and celebrate youth in the Scottish Year of Young People 2018. Their visit will also include a stop at the iconic Edinburgh Castle, as well as a visit to the social enterprise Social Bite cafe, which combats homelessness, and a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Harry’s brother and sister-in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, first met in 2001 while studying in Scotland at the University of St. Andrews, just 30 miles northeast of where he and Meghan will be visiting.
