Dressed in a suitably green Givenchy dress, Meghan and Prince Harry were briefly greeted before taking off for their first engagement.

The trip will take place over 10-11 July, where the Duke and Duchess will “meet the people of Dublin and will visit organisations which are central to Irish life.”

Highlights of the short two-day trip include a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park, the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association.

Prince Harry and Meghan will have official meetings as well as taking in the cultural aspects of the country. Meetings with The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and with The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, are both planned.

The British Ambassador will host a summer garden party where the couple will have the chance to meet locals who are involved in sports, arts, social enterprise and the military.

According to a press release from Kensington Palace: “The Duke and Duchess will also have a moment for reflection at the Famine Memorial, before visiting EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum, telling the story of the 10 million Irish people who have emigrated across the world.”

Other visits include DogPatch Labs to meet youth learning coding through free workshops.
