Harry and Meghan visit Dublin in first trip as married couple

Share

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have just wrapped up a two-day visit to Ireland, but it wasn't without incident.

Once upon a time, in practically every fairytale, some prince or "knight in shining armor" comes to rescue a lady from absolute peril.

"I do not think that her wedding dress was a copy of any of our designs".

The Duchess then arrived in Dublin with her husband, Prince Harry, for their first official overseas trip wearing an emerald green Givenchy skirt and top paired with tan heels and a Strathberry bag. They were joined at the ceremony by the Queen and other senior members of the Royal Family, including Prince Charles and Prince William.

Meghan, meanwhile, went for a darker look in a retro-style, bespoke Dior dress featuring her go-to bateau neckline.

When it came to her accessories the newly-wedded royal stuck simple black accents in the form of a suede shoe and an oversize leather handbag.

Of course, now that the royal wedding is behind them, fans and well-wishers alike have been peppering Meghan and Harry with questions about if and when they plan to have kids of their own.

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

The newly-appointed Duchess of Sussex was busy meeting-and-greeting several guests at the British Ambassador to Ireland's residence on Tuesday when she allegedly broke a major rule: don't be political.

Later today, the royal couple will visit the Book of Kells at Trinity College, Croke Park and the EPIC Irish Emigration Museum - where Ms Markle will learn about a number of her Irish ancestors.

On Tuesday, they were greeted by Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar at Government Buildings in Dublin.
