Meghan Markle will (finally!) be making her first visit to the Queen’s Scottish estate, Balmoral Castle. According to The Sun, the Duchess will be making her inaugural visit next week along with Prince Harry and their son Archie.

Of course, the visit is already stirring up some mild concern. Since the Queen and her guests typically enjoy outdoor activities like hunting and fly fishing at the estate, it’s unclear how, or if, Meghan, a known animal rights activist, will participate. The Daily Mail’s royals writer Robert Jobson believes that Meghan may “feign a headache” to avoid the outings, but it seems more likely that she must just choose to stay in with her baby if she really wants to avoid it.

“It is hunting which is perhaps the biggest passion,” he wrote of the royal family. “Meghan, however, who rather disproves of such blood sports, may choose to feign a headache.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton, along with their three children recently had their own Balmoral vacation, leaving to return to Norfolk this past Tuesday. Despite rumors that their are tensions between the two couples, a source told the Daily Mail that the trips were not planned so that the families would intentionally miss each other.

The summer has been full of getaways for Meghan and Prince Harry. Earlier this month the couple, along with Archie, traveled to Spain and the South of France to celebrate Meghan’s 38th birthday. Meghan also took time out of her maternity leave to show support for her friend, Serena Williams, during her match at Wimbledon.
