Harry and Meghan arrives in Dublin for first overseas tour as a married couple


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in Dublin on their first foreign tour as a married couple.

The Royal couple flew in from London by private jet after attending events to mark the centenary of the RAF.

Aides said the couple had been officially approved to charter a plane rather than take a regularly scheduled flight.

Harry and Meghan’s first visit abroad on behalf of the UK Government will see them take in a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park, attend a summer garden party at the British ambassador’s Residence and visit Trinity College during ten engagements over 24 hours in the Irish capital.

The trip has been designed to promote good diplomatic relations with Ireland, with Brexit sure to be high on their agenda.

Ireland's Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is formally welcoming the couple who will enjoy a summer garden party at Glencairn, the official residence of Britain's Ambassador to Ireland Robin Barnett.

Prince Harry will speak at the event, where guests will include people from across Ireland's arts, sports, military and social enterprise sectors.

Over the coming days the couple will meet the people of Dublin and will visit organisations which are central to Irish life.

They will attend a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park, the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association, to watch youngsters taking part in sporting activities.

Meghan and Harry 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 10 million Irish who have emigrated across the world.

The royal couple will also learn more about the bright future of Ireland during their time in Dublin, with a visit to Dogpatch Labs, a co-working space for technology start-ups.

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.
