It has been an incredibly busy time for Harry and Meghan, who are preparing to welcome their first child in the spring, and are relocating to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor. The couple also went on a royal tour abroad in late February. The pair visited Morocco for a three-day visit, where they were granted a private audience with King Mohammed VI in his 1950s Arabic-style country mansion. They also met the king's son, 15-year-old Crown Prince Moulay Hassan, who led the Duke and Duchess into the house. The king also lent the pair his vintage Mercedes 600 SEL car so they could travel to their final engagement in style – a visit to the king's Rabat residence. Their trip highlights included visiting Casablanca, Asni and Rabat, taking part in a cooking session, visit a local market and attend an evening reception hosted by the British Ambassador to Morocco. The couple will next appear in public next week, when they attend a reception to mark the 50th anniversary of the investiture of the Prince of Wales.
