Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be spending Valentine’s Day much differently this year.
Last year marked the pair’s first time celebrating the holiday as a married couple — however, they spent most of it apart. Meghan, who was pregnant with baby Archie at the time, stayed in the U.K. while Harry traveled to Norway to visit service members and learn how they deal with extreme cold weather.
The British troops made sure the Duchess of Sussex wasn’t forgotten, surprising Prince Harry by decorating Quincey Shelter, a version of an igloo dug out and used in emergencies in extreme temperatures, with candles, mood music and even photos of him and Meghan from their royal wedding!
Spotting the photographs of his wedding, including the couple’s public debut on the steps on St. George’s Chapel and their carriage ride around Windsor, the Duke of Sussex laughed, “You weirdos! Nice.”
“It’s very kind of you to invite me into your private, err, shrine,” he added, proclaiming it “romantic.”
Sergeant Ads Lesley said that the wedding photos seemed “almost a bit of a shock” to Harry, who he said “had a chuckle to himself.”
“He had a smile on his face,” the sergeant said of their royal visitor. “We had some chill-out music on, just to show how creative you can be.”

This year, Meghan and Harry will likely be spending the romantic holiday in Canada following their decision to step down as senior members of the royal family. However, they recently visited the U.S., where they appeared at a private JPMorgan event in Miami’s South Beach and on the campus of Stanford University, where they met with professors about their new charitable foundation.
