The Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s Royal visit to Ireland: Day 2

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex’s Royal visit to Ireland: Day 2

Today, Meghan & Harry continued their royal visit to Dublin, Ireland. Today seemed a bit less diplomatic than yesterday but The Duchess still managed to impress everyone on her first official visit.

The couple first went to Áras an Uachtaráin to meet with Irish President Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina. They got to meet the president’s Bernese Mountain dogs Brod and Sioda. Meghan even cuddled them. They also signed the visitor’s book and rang the Peace Bell before departing to continue their tour. Meghan wore a Roland Mouret dress with Paul Andrew shoes. She completed her look with Birks earrings and a Fendi bag.

Their next stop was Croke Park, the home of Gaelic Football. Harry & Meghan visited the stadium and met with various players. A cute little guy named Walter was caught touching Meghan’s hair, it made her laugh. Meghan changed her outfit and opted for a Givenchy suit, with the same Paul Andrew heels.

Next, they arrived at Trinity College. Before entering, Meghan & Harry greeted well-wishers who were waiting. Meghan received a few gifts, including flowers. Inside Trinity College, they visited the Book of Kells, a must see in The Old Library & Long Room tour of the College. They also signed the visitor’s book before their departure.

After a well-deserved break (the couple had lunch at Delahunt), they arrived at the Famine Memorial, which commemorates the Great Famine of the 19th Century. They also got to meet and talk with the sculptor, Rowan Gillespie.

The Duke & Duchess paid a visit to the EPIC Irish Emigration Museum, which tells the story of millions of Irish people who emigrated in the world. They also explored a tribute to Irish innovators in this interactive museum.


To finish their day and their tour of Dublin, Meghan & Harry visited DogPatch Labs, a technology start-up, where they met members of CodoDojo, a global network of free computer programming clubs for young people. The Duke and Duchess helped celebrate CodeDojo’s 7th anniversary. They ended the day with a little walkabout.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to visit Ireland next month

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to visit Ireland next month

According to the Belfast Telegraph, Harry and Meghan are expected to visit Ireland for two days of engagements, beginning on Friday, July 13.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to visit Ireland in the middle of next month, very likely around Friday, July 13.

Preparations are continuing for Prince Harry and Meghan to visit, less than two months after their wedding on May 19. Sources say they are likely to take part in a series of engagements over the course of two days.

It will be a second royal visit of the summer, as Prince Charles and wife Camilla are expected in Cork later this week for a three-day visit which will also include visits to Kerry.

Officials hope the publicity around these visits may prove helpful in Anglo-Irish relations at a time when Brexit has created a considerable strain between the two governments.

The British Embassy has so far remained tight-lipped about the arrangements.

Harry has never visited the Republic before, but Meghan spent time there as an ambassador for the One Young World summit in 2014.

This would be the Duchess’ second visit to Ireland. In 2014, she attended the One Young World summit in Dublin. You can find photos of the summit in our gallery. Earlier this year, in March, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Northern Ireland for a day of engagements.
