The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Áras an Uachtaráin on Wednesday morning, and as always, Meghan stunned with her outfit choice.

Meghan opted for a Roland Mouret dress, which featured her favourite boat neckline.

During their meeting, a reporter hilariously asked Harry if “football was coming home”, and he replied, “Most definitely.”

After signing the visitor’s book, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex rang the Peace Bell made to mark the 10th anniversary of the Belfast Agreement.

The couple touched down in Dublin yesterday afternoon, and the pair were greeted by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.

As always, Meghan looked stunning as she stepped off their plane in a forest green Givenchy dress.

After meeting Leo Varadkar, Meghan and Harry attended a summer garden party at the British Ambassador’s headquarters, where they met people from across Ireland’s arts, sports, military and social enterprise sectors.

The Duke and Duchess will also learn more about the bright future of Ireland by paying a visit to DogPatch Labs, a co-working space for technology start-ups.

Here, Harry and Meghan will meet children and young people taking part in free coding workshops, and will also have the opportunity to talk to female tech entrepreneurs.

Wasting no time, the couple will jet back to the UK on Wednesday night, so people will get another chance to see them at Dublin airport.
