What Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Did on Their Secret Vacation to Amsterdam
Harry and Meghan set off for the Netherlands last weekend, where they enjoyed a three-day stopover to help celebrate the opening of the SoHo House’s latest outpost.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are truly the masters of low-key travel. Despite being one of the most famous couples in the world, the duo reportedly was able to enjoy a weekend away in Amsterdam without getting noticed.
According to the Evening Standard, Harry and Meghan set off for the Netherlands last weekend, where they enjoyed a three-day stopover to help celebrate the opening of the SoHo House’s latest outpost.
The royals weren’t alone at the celebration. Also joining them to celebrate both the opening and SoHo founder Nick Jones’ 55th birthday were Lily Cole, Ella Eyre, Stanley Tucci, and Richard Bacon.
According to the Evening Standard, the weekend included dining on lobster spaghetti and tiramisu at Cecconi’s, receiving luxury treatments at the Cowshed spa, and taking a private tour of the red light district. It should be noted that the royal couple reportedly opted out of the red light tour, but did join the group on a boat cruise of the city’s canals.
It should come as no surprise the duo would go to such great lengths to join in on a SoHo bash. The pair did, after all, have their first date in the private dining room at the original Soho House in London. Meghan even reportedly threw her bachelorette at the private club’s retreat in the Cotswolds.
Though this trip was kept under the radar, the couple’s next journey will be a highly public event. Over the summer, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan and Harry will embark on their first official royal tour as a married couple in October. Then, they will visit Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the Kingdom of Tonga at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
The trip, the palace explained, will “focus on youth leadership, environmental and conservation efforts – including the dedication of several new Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy projects – and the recovery and rehabilitation of servicemen and women through the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.”
