The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived in Ireland to begin their first official tour of the country, at the request of Her Majesty's government. Their joint appearance comes just hours after they joined the Queen and other members of the royal family at celebrations to mark the Royal Air Force's centenary year in London, on Tuesday morning. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle appeared to be in great spirits as they made their way from Dublin City Airport to their meeting with Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach) Leo Varadkar.

Over the course of the trip, Harry and Meghan will meet the people of Dublin and will visit organisations which are central to Irish life. This will include a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park, the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association. During their visit to Dublin, the royals will also learn about Ireland's culture and heritage, including a visit to Trinity College, where they will see the Book of Kells, one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures. The Duke and Duchess will also have a moment for reflection at the Famine Memorial, before visiting EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum, telling the story of the ten million Irish people who have emigrated across the world.

The visit is good practice for the pair ahead of their overseas tour to Australia, Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga and New Zealand. The pair will be travelling over in October, and will mark their first tour as a married couple.

As ever, the Duchess of Sussex looked stylish in a green Givenchy outfit, which she teamed with a tan Strathberry Mid tote. Prince Harry, meanwhile, looked dapper in a navy suit and white shirt.

Shortly after meeting the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach) Leo Varadkar, took to Twitter. "Pleasure to welcome the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Government Buildings at the start of their visit to Ireland," he shared.
