Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took New Year’s trip ‘to get away from it all’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry went on a lowkey New Year's trip in the early days of their relationship to "get away from it all," a royal biographer claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex started seeing each other in 2016 and enjoyed dating in private before news broke of their relationship.

It sparked a media storm of attention that the couple felt they needed to get away from and took a romantic trip to escape.

Royal authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claim Prince Harry whisked Meghan to Norway after Christmas for a secret New Year surprise.

The trip was organised by Prince Harry's friend Inge Solheim, a Norwegian adventure guide, who he had met on a Walking with the Wounded charity trek back in 2011.

According to the commentators, Mr Solheim "arranged for Harry and Meghan to spend a week in a cabin in Tromsö at the very tip of Norway in the Arctic Circle, where there was absolutely no chance of being bothered by photographers."

Mr Scobie and Ms Durand said: "Harry planned a New Year’s trip where they could really get away from it all.

"He rung up his pal Inge Solheim, a Norwegian adventure guide Harry had befriended during a Walking with the Wounded charity trek back in 2011.

In Norway, the couple enjoyed "seven days of dog sledding, whale watching and dining on local delicacies."

The pair also reportedly watched the infamous aurora borealis while they were there, going "all out" for Meghan as he had done for ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

They added: "Inge had gone all out for Harry when he was with [ex-girlfriend] Cressida [Bonas], arranging a private 2014 ski trip to Kazakhstan.

"There, Harry and Meghan enjoyed seven days of dog sledding, whale watching, dining on local delicacies, and snuggling to watch as the aurora borealis lit up the skies."
