Meghan Markle had a busy time in Dublin on Wednesday, and visited Trinity College during the official visit with her husband, Prince Harry. However, this isn't the first time that the new Duchess of Susex has visited the college, as she previously visited back in 2013 to receive the Bram Stoker Medal from the university society for entertainment. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are among other stars to have received the accolade.

Meghan met crowds at a walkabout at Trinity College

Meghan, who starred in Suits at the time, also spoke to the Phil Soc at the college. At the time, Meghan tweeted: "Dublin, you are beyond lovely. Having the best day and excited for a night @diceysgarden and @krystlenightclub." During her visit with Prince Harry, the pair enjoyed a walkabout at the College, where they met Chloe Mullins, who gave the pair a sketch of their engagement photograph. Speaking about the sweet moment, Chloe said: "Harry said, 'You’ve given me more hair'. He saw it and was like, 'Wow'. Meghan came over and he said, 'Look at this, what do you think of it?' She said wow too and thanked me for it." Meghan and Harry have also visited Croke Park during their trip, where they met several players.

Speaking about their visit, Colin Regan, the GAA's community and health manager, said: "Meghan was particularly interested in the fact that there were boys and girls playing sports together. She said she had not seen that before, really." Meghan also chatted to Sarah Cregg, who plays wheelchair hurling, and Colin said: "She said, 'Good on you, Sarah,' She asked if it was a physical game. She said it was. She liked that Sarah was mixing it with the lads. She thought that was very empowering."
