Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive in Ireland on first worldwide trip

11 July 2018

This visit is at the request of Her Majesty's Government.

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, walks in with Prince Harry and Prince William as they arrive for a service at Westminster Abbey to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force. The royals will see a number of traditional Gaelic sports being played, such as hurling, camogie and rounders, as well as meeting the players.

The couple will then depart for Trinity College to learn about Ireland's culture and heritage, including a stop at the Library of Trinity College where the Book of Kells, one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures, is on display.

Harry and Meghan will "meet the people of Dublin and visit organisations which are central to Irish life".

Tourists can follow in Harry and Meghan's footsteps by visiting the GAA museum and taking a stadium tour.

Even before leaving for Ireland, it has been a busy week for the newlyweds.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge watch the RAF flypast on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The couple looked loved up a day previous on Monday, when they attended a fly-past marking the centenary of the British Royal Air Force.

They were joined at the ceremony by the Queen and other senior members of the Royal Family, including Prince Charles and Prince William.

Of course, Meghan looked absolutely stunning as she strutted down the airport runway wearing the green Givenchy dress.

Meghan looked dazzling as she arrived in a stunning Emilia Winstead black dress and stepped out holding hands with a beaming Prince Harry.

More than 2,200 people packed out Westminster Abbey for the service, with dignitaries including Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby attending.
