The royal dropped his leading lady off at London’s Heathrow airport on Sunday after spending a romantic week together. Harry was surrounded by a group of officers while Markle walked with an airline staff member to her gate.
Dressed in a long black wool coat, ripped jeans and her signature beanie, the Suits star was all smiles as she made her way through the terminal. The duo’s sweet send-off capped a festive week that included shopping for their first Christmas tree together and a date night in London’s West End to see The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Gielgud Theatre.
The play marked the couple’s first public outing since their relationship was confirmed in October.
Markle’s week-long trip to London came about a week after Harry made a major detour following his two-week tour of the Caribbean to see her in Canada.
Despite keeping a low profile, Harry and Markle have expressed their romance subtly with personalized jewelry and matching accessories, and a source recently told PEOPLE that Harry is “very serious about her.”
