The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to visit Ireland at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Kensington Palace announced today.

The visit will take place from Tuesday, 3 March to Thursday, 5 March.

An official invitation from Prime Minister Scott Morrison is expected to be issued this week.
