Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are making a weekend trip to Morocco later this month.

The couple, who lit up a reception and awards ceremony to honor veterans on Thursday night, will fly into the North African country for a three-day visit to highlight two of their key causes: girls’ education and young peoples’ empowerment.

It’s the couple’s first official visit to the country and will last from Saturday, Feb. 23 to Monday, Feb. 25.

They have been asked to go by the British government. “It will build on the close relationship between the U.K. and Morocco,” a spokesperson at their office at Kensington Palace says. “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.”

It’s thought that Meghan, 37, who recently said she is due in late April, will be moving into her eighth month of pregnancy at the time of the visit.

This time last year, when Kate Middleton was pregnant with Prince Louis (who was born on April 23), she and Prince William traveled to Norway and Sweden.
