Meghan Markle is officially not celebrating 'Galentines' day this year.

Kensington Palace has announced the former actress and her husband-to-be, Prince Harry, will be spending Valentine's Day in Scotland following their first official joint visit to Edinburgh on 13 February.

The couple - who will say 'I do' in front of friends and family on 19 May at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, will visit the Esplanade in front of the famous Edinburgh Castle and be greeted by the Royal Marines Scotland Band, reports E! News.

The pair will then watch the firing of the One O'clock Gun—a tradition that dates back to 1861 before visiting Social Bite, a sandwich shop that donates its profits to social causes.

It's here where the duo will learn about the organisation's work, meet staff and get a tour of the kitchen, three years after George Clooney paid a visit to the homeless charity.

To sign off their visit in Scotland, Harry and Meghan will attend a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse where they will celebrate the achievements of the country's youth for Scotland's Year of Young People 2018.

While Kensington Palace didn't reveal whether the newly-engaged couple will stay in Scotland for Valentine's Day, we have a feeling Harry might have something up his sleeve to impress his fiancée given her love of V-Day.

In her now-defunct lifestyle blog, The Tig, the 36-year-old explained how she prefers to spend the romantic holiday.

'I think you need to be your own Valentine,' Markle wrote. 'I think you need to cook that beautiful dinner even when it's just you, wear your favourite outfit, buy yourself some flowers, and celebrate the self love that often gets muddled when we focus on what we don't have.'

Just three years ago, the Californian beauty revealed she spent the loved-up day in New York with friends, 'imbibing some cocktail that's oddly pink, and jumping over icy mounds in my new shoes through the salted snowy streets of the West Village'.

If all else fails, Harry, consider flowers a must!
