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

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

On Tuesday, Harry and Meghan began their visit by meeting Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. One day you're shaking hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury at Prince Louis's christening, the next you're staring up at the sky to watch a military flyover at Buckingham Palace.

Wickstead, who is already a firm design favourite of Kate Middleton, made headlines in May this year after openly criticising Markle's Givenchy wedding gown and accusing the designer, Clare Waight Keller, of copying her.

We'll be following the Meghan Markle Effect™ with our column, "Meghan Markle Wore a Thing".

Meghan Markle packed a variety of chic, sleek outfits for her royal visit to Dublin with Prince Harry.

For a touch of "Markle Sparkle", she showcased loose curls (after having worn her locks in a slick side bun throughout the day) and donned earrings by her go-to Canadian jeweller, Birks.

Many Irish people have a gossipy interest in their nearest neighbour's royal family.

Pompeo, Japanese counterpart meet on North Korea
Secretary Pompeo called the talks "productive" while North Korea accused the US of acting like a "gangster" with its demands. Just hours after Pompeo arrived in Tokyo , the North blasted the discussions, saying the visit had been 'regrettable'.

The smitten couple are now set to visit the world famous Croke Park Gaelic football stadium, meet locals during a walk about of Trinity College and pay their respects at the Famine Memorial.

So there you have it: proof if proof were indeed needed - it's coming home, and by Royal decree! (Picture: PA) "Tenacity, skill and gallantry have been your hallmarks, ' she said".

Only Duchess Meghan could pull off polar opposite looks in a matter of hours.

The Duchess then arrived in Dublin with her husband, Prince Harry, for their first official overseas trip wearing an emerald green Givenchy skirt and top paired with tan heels and a Strathberry bag.

Queen Elizabeth watched on today as nearly 100 aircraft flew over Buckingham Palace in a celebration to mark the 100th anniversary of Britain's Royal Air Force.
