Prince Harry Took a Surprise Trip to Berlin Without Meghan Markle for a Special Reason
The surprise visit came a day after Harry "dragged" Meghan on stage in front of 12,000 excited kids at Wembley Arena.
The royal jetted off to Berlin, Germany, to continue research he’s doing on sustainability and tourism. It’s part of a project he is exploring as part of his work with the Royal Foundation, PEOPLE understands.
The issue fits with his desire to use the foundation — the royals’ charitable vehicle — to further environmental and conservation causes. Harry, who traveled solo, leaving wife Meghan Markle home in London, is attending the ITB Berlin, the world’s largest tourism trade fair. He and his staff were spotted on Thursday morning in Berlin.
The surprise visit comes a day after Harry, 34, “dragged” Meghan, 37 onto stage in front of 12,000 excited kids at Wembley Arena after the gave an inspiring speech that included one of his wife’s favorite quotes from Martin Luther King Jr.: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Tomorrow, on International Women’s Day, Meghan will join a panel for a discussion with musician and activist Annie Lennox, model and activist Adwoa Aboah and former Prime Minister of Australia Julia Gillard. Meghan is to talk about the importance of International Women’s Day, and the spotlight it can bring to obstacles which still affect female empowerment across the world, including access to education and limitations within employment,” the palace said in a statement.
