Kate Middleton Caught Prince William Giggling in Church

Kate Middleton Caught Prince William Giggling in Church

The choice of Ireland for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's first official foreign trip holds special significance given the impact of Brexit on the Irish border and the Queen's focus on strengthening British-Irish relations.

It comes "at the request of Her Majesty's Government", a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said.

The Duke of Cambridge, alongside wife Kate Middleton-who broke her maternity leave for a surprise appearance at a service for the Royal Air Force centenary at Westminster Abbey (the site of her 2011 royal wedding)-couldn't help but let a smirk slip on Tuesday morning. The pair were formally welcomed to the Emerald Isle by Ireland's Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, and over the coming days the couple will meet the people of Dublin and will visit organisations which are central to Irish life.

The couple will then depart for Trinity College to learn about Ireland's culture and heritage, including a stop at the Library of Trinity College where the Book of Kells, one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures, is on display.

Their final engagement in Dublin will be meeting with young people who take part in free coding workshops at Dogpatch Labs.

Tourists can follow in Harry and Meghan's footsteps by visiting the GAA museum and taking a stadium tour.

The Royals arrive at Westminster Abbey to mark 100 years of the RAF, ahead of the flypast.

Other royal family members present today include the Queen, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Meghan Markle wore a knee-length forest green Givenchy skirt and blouse as Prince Harry wore a classic suit earlier in the day.
