If there's anything Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first married royal adventure—the twosome recently wrapped their mini visit to Ireland—has taught us, it's that these two thrive when they're abroad. It makes sense. They fell in love in Africa and have an official royal tour to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand set for the fall. According to Us Weekly, the newlyweds have officially added to their travel itinerary. Come spring 2019, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will step foot on American soil.

 

"They are so excited to head to the U.S.," revealed a palace insider. This potential excursion will mark the pair's first trip to the States since exchanging vows in May. Though Markle is still adjusting to her new role, she'll take on one more once she and her husband arrive stateside: tour guide. "Meghan is looking forward to introducing Harry to everything she loves about the U.S."

We'll have to wait and see which U.S. cities the couple will hit during their stay—preliminary reports predict that New York, Washington, D.C., and a major California town will make the list—since the duo is currently working to "finalize locations and venues," continued the source. Their mission, however, is already set. "Meghan and Harry want to solidify ties between the U.K. and the U.S. They want to highlight and foster these relationships," the insider said.

 

Though this will mark the twosome's first joint-journey back across the pond, Markle will make a solo trip to New York and then Los Angeles this summer. The reason? She wants to visit friends and family before preparing for yet another role: mother. "Expect to hear the pitter-patter of a little prince or princess in 2019," concluded the source.
