Meghan Markle has beat Kate Middleton to this royal first in decades.
The Duchess will be the first royal to visit Morocco on an official visit in almost 40 years.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be planning a visit to Morocco.
The couple, who married in May 2018, at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
They are expecting their first baby in the spring.
It is said this trip will occur before their baby is due, when Meghan is seven months pregnant.
A spokesman from Kensington Palace revealed the trip will take place between 23 and 25 February.
They told People magazine: “It will build on the close relationship between the U.K. and Morocco.
“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.”
Meghan will be beating Kate Middleton to be the first royal to visit the country since the the Queen did.
The Queen, 92, visited Morocco in 1980.
During the trip she met King Hassan.
She and Prince Philip attended a number of state dinners.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be following a royal birthing rule.
Following the safe arrival of the child, royals must contact the family’s most well-known figure, as a priority.
The unusual rule came to light in a report by the Daily Mail back in 2013, ahead of the arrival of Prince William, now 36, and Kate Middleton’s, now 37, first child, Prince George.
Meghan Markle’s letter to her father made headlines recently.
However, her sister Samantha has responded to the letter published by People.
The letter, which was written by five anonymous friends of the Duchess, praised the new royal and shed light on her relationship with her father.
However, Samantha has called the report “bulls**t” and claimed the letter was a PR stunt.
Who is Meghan Markle? Quick profile
Meghan Markle was born Rachel Meghan Markle, on August 4, 1981 to parents Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle.
Her father was previously married to Roslyn Loveless and Meghan has two elder half sibling – sister Samantha Markle and brother Thomas Markle Junior.
Meghan’s first television appearance in the USA was in an episode of the medical drama General Hospital in 2002.
She later moved on to roles in CSI, Without a Trace and Castle along with bit parts in Hollywood films including Get Him to the Greek, Remember Me and Horrible Bosses.
Meghan was also a “briefcase girl” on Deal or No Deal – but her most famous role was as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, which launched in 2011.
She was written out in the finale of the seventh series when her character got married, which aired in April 2018 – just before she got married herself.
Charity and humanitarian work
Meghan Markle’s career in television has gone hand-in-hand with her support for causes close to her heart.
She wrote about the stigma around menstrual health in an article for Time magazine and was a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada – with whom she travelled to Rwanda for the charity’s Clean Water Campaign.
And her commitment to gender equality has seen her work with the United Nations – receiving a standing ovation in 2015 for her speech to mark International Women’s Day.
In September 2011, she wed film producer Trevor Engelson, who she began dating in 2004.
But the pair divorced two years later in August 2013, citing irreconcilable difference.
She was in a relationship with celebrity chef Cory Vitiello for almost two years, before they broke it off in 2016 but the two remain good friends.
And in June 2016, she met Prince Harry on a blind date set up by a mutual friend.
Their relationship began in October that year and just over one year later, on November 27, 2017, the pair announced their engagement.
They married on May 19, 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
Some have claimed Meghan Markle is the first mixed-race member of the Royal Family.
Historians are still arguing about Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III.
But Meghan will be the first royal to openly embrace a mixed-race heritage.
She has written about the difficulties of being a biracial actress in Hollywood as she claims she is not black enough for some roles and not white enough for others.
