Prince Harry and Meghan visit Republic of Ireland

On Tuesday morning, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle joined the queen and other members of the royal family for celebrations marking the centenary of the Royal Air Force at London's Westminster Abbey.

Tomorrow they are due to meet Irish President Michael D Higgins at Aras an Uachtarain.

The Duke and Duchess will then visit Croke Park, the home of Ireland's largest sporting organisation, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).

The Duke and Duchess will also pay a visit to the Famine Memorial, where they'll pay their respects, before visiting the Irish Emigration Museum.

The visit, at the request of the British government, is expected to attract a lot of media attention.


At a particularly tumultuous time for the United Kingdom, the visit is seen as an attempt to maintain friendly relations with Ireland n the content of Brexit.

The newlyweds greeted the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, ahead of the christening service and Meghan, who shot to fame as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, was caught on camera giggling as she greeted the man who officiated her wedding in May.

Kensington Palace said Harry and Meghan - known as the Baron and Baroness of Kilkeel when in Northern Ireland - are "looking forward to learning more about Ireland's history".

Harry and Meghan fly to Dublin as part of a series of royal visits that the Royal family have planned in the wake of the Brexit vote, as they look to cement ties with European neighbours ahead of Britain's departure from the EU next year.
