PRINCE Harry has left his pregnant wife Meghan Markle at home to travel to Norway for the 50th anniversary of the British Commando Helicopter Force and Joint Helicopter Command deploying to the Bardufoss air station in Norway for extreme cold weather training.
Prince Harry is spending his first Valentine’s Day as a husband away from his pregnant wife Meghan Markle. The Duke of Sussex is currently in Norway to visit British servicemen and women undergoing extreme winter weather training. And as the Duke arrived hundreds of miles inside the freezing Arctic Circle, Prince Harry was met with candles and photos of wife Meghan inside a homemade snow cave.
British soldier made the snow cave inside the Bardufoss air station in a gesture to protect the prince from the freezing weather currently swiping through the Scandinavian country.
In addition to the candles and pictures, the soldiers had put on classical music for the royal guest.
A soldier told Prince Harry: “It’s not normally like this here.”
The Duke of Sussex reportedly found the whole thing “very funny” according to British photographers at the scene.
And although Prince Harry is in a different country than his wife, he had not forgotten the fact that today is Valentine’s Day.
British soldier Chris Anderson, who was appointed the job of showing the Prince around the area where British troops do their training, was reportedly asked by Prince Harry: “Have you sent your wife flowers today?”
Mr Anderson told Norwegian paper VG: “He asked me about my equipment and uniform and then he asked if I had sent my wife flowers.”
Prince Harry may get to spend some time with Meghan on the most romantic day of the year as well, as he is expected to return to London tonight.
Royal commentator Loni Love suggested Meghan could still be treated to a Valentine’s surprise.
The Real Talk host said: “Kensington Palace has announced Prince Harry has an event on February 14 that will take him out of the country entirely.
“He is the Captain-General of the Royal Marines for the UK.
“He will have to leave on February 14 to head 200 miles south of the Arctic circle. He has to oversee the training of the Royal Marines.
“The good thing is that is just during the day.
“He could charter a flight back so he could be there with her in the evening. I think that’s what he’s going to do.”
Prince Harry’s visit to Norway comes two years after he brought then-girlfriend Meghan on a secret love holiday to the northern city of Tromsø.
The two reportedly stayed at Tromvik Lodge and went on a whale safari as well as seeing the northern lights during the romantic trip.
