The couple of Sussex welcomed the new year in Tromvik, a secluded tiny Norwegian town, where there are no restaurants or cafés.

Don’t go looking for a shop either. They stayed at the Tromvik Lodge, enjoying panoramic views of the ocean and Northern Lights.

This spot is very popular with tourists in the coldest month of the year. They go for the Aurora Borealis and whale watching.

Tromvik offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature, where you can stroll along pearly-white beaches or across meadows with grazing sheep.

Romance under the African stars – that’s exactly what Harry and Meghan enjoyed. She first joined him while he was helping with conservation projects.

In August last year they returned, this time staying at Meno a Kwena Tented Camp, between the Okavango Delta and Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

They have nine luxurious tents overlooking the Boteti River. You can enjoy sightings of various wildlife, especially elephants. The couple spent three weeks in Africa, where they also visited Victoria Falls in Zambia.

With Suits filmed in Toronto, the couple spent a lot of time in the Canadian city. Meghan had her own home in
Toronto, which gave them some privacy during their courtship.

In fact, this is the place where they made their first high-profile appearance. It was at the Invictus Games, which was hosted by Harry.

If you go with your other half, be sure to check out the CN Tower. It held the record as the world’s tallest free-standing structure for 32 years. Then it lost its title to the Burj Khalifa, Dubai, and the Canton Tower in China.

While Harry and Meghan were courting, he took her to his close friend Tom Inskip’s wedding in Jamaica. They stayed at the lavish Round Hill Hotel and Villas resort.

The couple were spotted canoodling on the beach and enjoying sundowners. Aside from a tenacious paparazzi or two, they had a butler on hand and the most amazing views.

This spot was voted Best Family Resort in the Caribbean 2017 by Family Vacation Critic, which is TripAdvisor’s family-focused travel site.

They spent several low-key dates at Soho House, a members club in a grade II listed Georgian townhouse, on Dean Street in central London.

In December, they were spotted picking up their Christmas tree at Battersea Park. Be sure to visit the London Eye and take a bottle of bubbly up with you.

If you are looking for something truly special, take your better half to the 31st floor of London’s tallest building, Aqua Shard.

You can choose to have a fancy lunch or dinner and it will be worth every penny.
