Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Go On A Babymoon?

Since their wedding day in May 2018 —Meghan Markle and Prince Harry haven’t slowed down one bit. They’ve gone to countless charity events, embarked on some royal tours, and now they are preparing for the most significant change in their lives –the birth of their first child. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have just about two months left before they welcome Baby Sussex into the world, and their lives will be changed forever.

Though Markle is heavily pregnant, she still looks and feels fantastic, so she hopes to continue working up until she gives birth. Still, with such a packed schedule and a massive move from their 2-bedroom apartment at Kensington Palace to their sprawling estate at Frogmore House, we wondered if Markle and Prince Harry will have time to go on a babymoon.

What is a babymoon?

Typically, a couple takes a babymoon in the final trimester of pregnancy. The purpose of the vacation is to allow for a bit of romance and relaxation before everything becomes all about the baby. Essentially it’s the last baby-free getaway many couples will have for a long time. Sherry Alvarado, the experiences coordinator at Rosewood Bermuda, told The New York Times, “A babymoon — a vacation couples take in the months before they become parents — is a chance to relax, spend quality time with your partner and indulge in some fun before your new arrival.”

Will Meghan Markle and Prince Harry go on a babymoon?

Right now, it doesn’t look like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have left any room in their packed schedules for a babymoon. However, they are about to embark on a really amazing royal tour. The duchess and the prince will head to Morocco which is located in North Africa– for three days, Feb. 23-25, 2019. They are traveling to the country on behalf of the British government. A Kensington Palace spokesperson explained to People, “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.”

During their two days of royal engagements, Markle and Prince Harry will meet Morocco’s ruler King Mohammed VI, and the country’s prime minister Saad-Eddine El Othmani. They are also set to visit major tourist attractions.

Is it safe for Meghan Markle to fly in her final trimester of pregnancy?

The flight time from the United Kingdom to Morocco is just over 3-hours which isn’t terribly long. Though the duke and duchess are reportedly flying commercial, we’re sure they’ll be in first class. According to England’s National Health Service — women can fly until they are 37 weeks pregnant. A royal aide explained to The Telegraph U.K, “The Duchess feels well and able to fly. Most airlines permit women to fly up until approximately the last month of their pregnancy.” Though the royal aide did not confirm, it appears that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will also have a doctor accompanying them on the trip.

Once they are all moved into their new digs in March, the duke and duchess may slip off on a secret babymoon and never tell us about it. After all, we still have no clue where they spent their honeymoon.
