As senior members of the Royal Family, Meghan Markle, 37, and Prince Harry, 34, often step out for public visits. This week, the Duke of Sussex is taking a trip to Norway. The Duchess of Sussex will not join him for the occasion, despite it being Valentine’s Day. So, while her husband carries out his latest royal task, what will Meghan be doing?
The Duchess of Sussex’s exact plans are not publicly known.
However, earlier this week, Meghan was spotted stepping out in London on Tuesday.
She was attending the annual Endeavour Fund Awards.
Both Prince Harry and Meghan took to the stage to speak at the event.
While her exact whereabouts is not known, it’s thought that the Duchess will be spending time in London.
The pair currently live in the capital, in Kensington Palace.
However, the pair are expected to make the move to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor in the near future.
It comes as the couple await the arrival of their first child together.
Meghan is due to give birth in spring time, although her exact due date is unknown.
However, she has shed some light on when the little one could be expected to be born.
On a previous royal visit, she told well-wishers that it could be the end of April or the start of May.
During the Prince’s visit to Norway, he will go to a training camp.
His overseas trip will see him celebrate the 50th anniversary of Exercise Clockwork in Bardufoss.
Kensington Palace said last month: “The Duke of Sussex will meet military personnel living and training on the base, view some of the specialist outdoor severe weather equipment and training that is conducted at Clockwork and talk with expert aircrews and engineers.”
Next weekend, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Morocco.
The pair will be taking the trip at the request of the UK government.
They will travel there on Saturday February 23, until Monday February 25.

Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
