Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have touched down in Ireland, marking their first official visit to Dublin.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Dublin Airport this afternoon via private jet, where they were greeted by world media on the airfield.

The couple were picked up by a convoy of vehicles, as they’re set to be 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 will attend a summer garden party at the British Ambassador’s headquarters this evening, where they will meet people from across Ireland’s arts, sports, military and social enterprise sectors.

To kick off their final day in Ireland, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will meet with President Michael D Higgins at Áras an Uachtaráin on Wednesday morning.

The Royal couple will then travel to Trinity College, where they will see the Book of Kells, one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures.

After this, Meghan and Harry will attend the Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park, which is the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association.

The pair will then have a moment for reflection at the Famine Memorial, before visiting the Irish Emigration Museum.

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.
