Harry was then seen laughing as he responded to his wife, while Meghan did her best to hide a smirk from her face.
The Duchess has championed Strathberry in two previous official appearances and memorably carried the burgundy Strathberry Midi Tote in Nottingham last December and the East/West Mini cross body bag in racing Green during her visit to Edinburgh in February. She wore her hair back in a loose bun, and paired the look with a large black handbag.
She did showcase a flash of bling with a pair of elegant diamond earrings as she took Harry's arm before meating the president.
The Duchess of Sussex is expected to be politically impartial, but it seems she might have slipped up on an official visit to Ireland.
The meeting with Mr Higgins and his wife Sabina was the first stop in a packed itinerary for the royal couple on Wednesday.
A closer look at Meghan Markle's shoes. "Her wedding dress was quite loose".
"I think the fact that Harry and Meghan have been asked by the Foreign Office to go to Ireland shows just how much faith the Queen has in both of them as working royals", royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET of the visit.
She's accessorised with a decorative hat by Stephen Jones, a chic clutch and pale heels. This will include a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park, the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association.
They will also visit Trinity College, the Famine Memorial and the Irish Emigration Museum over the course of their stay.
The royal couple will meet Irish President Michael Higgins and the head of government, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on their first visit outside the United Kingdom since their wedding in May, the Irish Times reported.
