And by 'escape' we actually mean representing his grandmother on a tour of some Commonwealth countries.
Prince Harry's escaping the November gloom for a little pre-Christmas fun in the sun.
The redheaded royal is off on a solo tour of Antigua, Barbuda, St Kitts, St Lucia and (stop to catch breath) St Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Grenada and finally Guyana. He'll be island hopping between November 20 and December 4.
Last time the royal went to the Caribbean we got this picture, so...lots to look forward to, friends.

In honor of the superstar's 31st birthday, we're looking back at all of our favourite Ciara songs, from the early 2000s to now.
1. '1, 2 Step' (2004)
Who could forget her signature 1, 2 Step? It was the hottest dance move of 2004.
2. 'Goodies' (2004)
This really was her breakout year. We''re still trying to get this song out of our heads.
3. 'Oh' ft. Ludacris (2004)
Ciara at her most gangsta, ladies and gents.
4. 'Like You' (2005)
Bet you forgot Ciara and Bow Wow were a thing. They may be long over but their duet will always be R&B gold.
5. 'Get Up' (2006)
Ci Ci came out with this in 2006 to remind everyone that she's basically the best dancer who ever lived.
6. 'Like A Boy' (2006)
This whole concept was ICONIC. Also, can we talk about what an attractive guy Ciara would be?
7. 'Love Sex Magic' (2009)
Ciara + Justin Timberlake + a steamy love song = magic.
8. 'Never Ever' (2009)
Ciara dished out some pretty catchy love advice. If that boy don't love you by noooow.....
9. 'Body Party' (2013)
Ciara made quite the comeback with this steamy song & video, where she danced for her new beau Future.
10. 'I Bet' (2015)
And she killed her break up song for Future too. Yaaas Ciara, get that bomb selfie.
Are you using it yet?
We're guessing you've heard of Proactiv? The founders behind the acne treatment line – dermatologists Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields – also happen to be the savvy brains behind another skincare brand, aptly named Rodan + Fields, which zeros in on anti-aging treatment systems. The duo were recently in Toronto to talk about a super secret launch from said skincare brand, and while my lips are sealed on those details (guys, I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement!), I can tell you my takeaway from meeting with them is that I need to start using retinoic acid like, five years ago.
According to Dr. Kathy Fields, who is still a practicing dermatologist and prof at Stanford School of Medicine in San Francisco, it's all about retinoic acid, which has been around for over 30 years.
"Retinoic acid is still the favoured molecule by dermatologists," says Dr. Fields. "It's vitamin A. It makes the pores look smaller because it debrides the pore [for all you word nerds, that means it unplugs the pore]. It helps normalize cell turnover, which is anti-wrinkle. It helps shed dark skin [think brown spots] and a little anti-cancer."
"If you have sun damaged skin, it helps normalize the epidermis," says Fields.
A few things to know about using retinoic acid:
But the number one anti-aging cream of all time, to infinity and beyond? Come on, you should know this by now.
The answer is sunscreen. "If you're not protecting your skin, you're toast," says Fields.
