The upcoming Valentine’s day is a big thing for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex since the royal couple has many things to celebrate. The last Valentine’s day the royal couple spent together in Scotland. However, they will have to spend their first Valentine’s day as a husband and wife apart.
Not everything is perfect when you a member of the royal family. Being a Prince doesn’t mean you don’t have to work on holidays. Since Prince Harry is the Captain General of the Royal Marines, he will need to attend the 50th celebration of the military training operation called Exercise Clockwork, in Bardufoss, Norway.
The training is established in 1969, and since then, more than 16.000 of sailors went through the program for the Royal Navy and Royal Marines. The ceremony is going to be held on the 14th of February.

Prince Harry’s military career got him the title of the Captain General in 2017. The Duke of Sussex served the military for 10 years and participated in several UK army missions abroad.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first child. Since the Duchess of Sussex is in her 6th month of pregnancy, it is still unclear if she would be able to follow her husband away from London, while he is doing his royal duties.
The royal couple already has two ceremonies to attend together in February: on 1st of February the couple is going to visit the Bristol, and on the 7th of February they are attending Endeavor Fund Awards.
While some are hoping the happy couple will manage to be with each other on Valentine’s day, the others don’t seem to be much upset about it. True, it’s not like they are going to be apart for ages, it’s just a couple of days.
