Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are planning to take some time away for themselves after their first big Christmas with the royal family. According to Us Weekly, the pair will head out on a vacation of a week or more following their three-day stay at the Queen's Sandringham estate.

This isn't the first time the happy couple opted for a Winter getaway. Last January, they travelled to Norway, but this time around, they're expected to go somewhere much warmer. Sources are keeping quiet about where exactly they're headed, but perhaps it will be to Harry's beloved Botswana? In their engagement interview with the BBC, they revealed that they camped out under the stars in the country on their first trip away together. What could be better than returning to the place they fell in love ahead of their wedding in May?

Another likely destination is the Caribbean. Not only is the weather perfect in January, but Harry has visited the British Virgin Islands and Jamaica multiple times and often makes trips to Commonwealth countries like St. Lucia. The president of Antigua and Barbuda has already invited the couple to the country for their honeymoon, but perhaps they'll take him up on his hospitality a little earlier than planned?

Wherever they end up going, the couple will no doubt take advantage of this final bit of down time before one of the busiest times of their lives. With only five months to go until the wedding, there's a lot to organise when they get back!
