Their first visit to the Middle East
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to visit Morocco from Saturday, February 23 to Monday, February 25. The three-day trip will be the Duchess of Sussex’s last overseas trip before going on maternity leave.
This trip will mark the couple’s first official visit to the region. It was announced by Kensington Palace on Twitter; however, their itinerary has not been announced yet. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Morocco from Saturday 23rd February to Monday 25th February 2019. This visit is at the request of Her Majesty’s Government. Full details of the visit will be announced in due course.”

A spokesperson from Kensington Palace spoke further about the trip saying, “It will build on the close relationship between the U.K. and Morocco. The Duke and Duchess are looking forward to the visit which will highlight the vital roles that girls’ education and youth empowerment are playing in, and shaping, modern Morocco.”
Earlier last month, Meghan revealed that her baby is due sometime in April, while addressing a crowd in Birkenhead. This means that the Duchess will be around seven month pregnant during her trip to Morocco. This will be the expecting parents third official trip overseas, since they tied the knot in May. They visited the Republic of Ireland last July, and embarked on a 16-day tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga in October.
We can’t wait for their visit!
