Meghan’s trip to India has been delayed amid organisation concerns
Prince Harry is already planning his second holiday with new girlfriend Meghan Markle as the pair enjoy their first romantic break.
The loved-up prince is set to take Meghan away skiing, which may soften the blow of her delayed humanitarian trip to India.
She has been forced to delay the trip to India for charity work amid security concerns now that she is dating a prince.
The actress was due to fly there later this month with children’s charity World Vision, for whom she is an ambassador.
She is currently with Prince Harry on a romantic break in Norway.
A source told the Daily Star: ‘This will be Harry and Meghan’s first ski holiday together, which to ski bunny Harry is a big deal. It’s not just the skiing, the whole apres ski social aspect is right up his street.
‘Obviously his uncle Andrew’s chalet in Verbier is preferred by his protection team because they know every inch of the land, but Harry’s love affair with Norway is only deepening after his time with Meg there at New Year.’
Harry is said to be deciding the exact location for the trip, thought to be happening in February, but is taking advice from close friend Inge Solheim, a polar explorer who has given him advice on previous trips.

It could also be a chance for her to meet his friends as they are said to have been invited to come along on the trip.
The holiday will likely come after Meghan’s postponed trip to India.
A source told the People: ‘The trip has had to be put back due to organisational concerns.
‘Since Meghan’s relationship with Prince Harry became public knowledge, her profile has risen dramatically and that brings a lot of things with it.
‘It has not been rescheduled for any definite date yet but it is not expected to happen now until at least March.
‘Meghan is disappointed her India trip has been put back, but she understands why.
‘Dating Harry has changed her life dramatically, but she couldn’t be happier.’
Meghan had spoken about the planned trip in October, before her relationship became public, and said she was looking forward to setting up a ‘girls’ programme’ that she’d been working on for six months.

The couple celebrated the new year together before flying out to Tromso, on the Norwegian fjords, where they also whale watched and enjoyed romantic lake trips.
And the pièce de résistance of their first trip away together was looking up into the night’s sky at the Aurora Borealis.
They are thought to have bonded over their shared love of humanitarian work, which Meghan has written about on her blog The Tig.
She wrote: ‘I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches – I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works. And this type of work is what feeds my soul, and fuels my purpose.’
When she was last on a trip with World Vision, to Rwanda, in February Meghan visited clean water projects, helped build a well and met many Rwandans who have had a lasting impact on her life.
The actress does admit that balancing a life of luxury to one where she witnesses people denied of the most basic needs can be challenging.
She adds: ‘Guiding my heart though the swinging pendulum from excess to lack of access is sometimes challenging.’
