Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive in Ireland on first worldwide trip

Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive in Ireland on first worldwide trip

In the months between Harry and Meghan's official engagement announcement and the royal wedding itself, it was her go-to style.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who Wednesday in May, will spend two days in Ireland.

It will be Prince Harry and Meghan's first trip outside the United Kingdom since their wedding in May.

Not everyone would wear olive green to a christening, but Meghan Markle managed to pull it off easily. This visit is at the request of Her Majesty's Government.

Harry gave his first address of their trip, which began on Tuesday evening as the newlyweds arrived in Dublin airport, at a garden party in the British Ambassador to Ireland's residence in Glencairn.

Later, they will take part in a Gaelic sports festival where traditional Irish sports like hurling, camogie and rounders will be played.

The Book of Kells is one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures, and is on display at Trinity College in the heart of Dublin.

Fresh from Prince Louis's christening yesterday, the royal foursome arrived at the iconic landmark for a service celebrating the RAF's history.

After the brief speech, the Queen joined the rest of the royals up on the palace balcony to watch nearly 100 aircraft, from Second World War Spitfires to the newest stealth fighter jet, fly over the palace.

The royal brothers wore their military uniforms as they arrived at Westminster Abbey Tuesday morning for a service marking the centenary.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were clearly very affectionate with each other and shared some private jokes as they joined the rest of the royal family in honouring their 100-year association with the air force.

Later today, Meghan and Harry will fly to Dublin where they'll spend the next two days.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, presided over Louis' christening, just as he did for Meghan's baptism and confirmation.
