Kate Middleton Dazzles in All-Green Ensemble Worn on 1st Day of Official Visit to Ireland with Prince William
Earlier today, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kicked off their three-day tour of the Republic of Ireland.
Upon their arrival at the Dublin International Airport, the Kensington Palace official Twitter account posted a picture of the royal couple touching down. The tweet was captioned,
The tweet also showed Prince William and Kate climbing down the stairs of their plane. The Duke was official as ever, donning a black and white suit with a long trench coat.
“Hello, Ireland! Dia daoibh, daoine na hÉireann! #RoyalVisitIreland.”
The Duchess, however, stunned in a jaw-dropping emerald gown – complete with a green trench coat of her own, of course.
Prince Harry has committed himself to attend the awards since it was inaugurated and he will be attending this year’s event with Meghan Markle by his side.
The Daily Mail provided additional details about Duchess Kate’s number, confirming in a report that she wore an Alessandra Rich dress, a coat designed by Catherine Walker, and Asprey London daisy heritage earrings that are worth £17,300.
Hello, Magazine has also shed more light on their itinerary, explaining in its report that Prince William and Kate will be meeting with Ireland’s President Michael D. Higgins, as well as Leo Varadkar, the Taoiseach of Ireland.
They will also be going to the Garden of Resemblance to lay a wreath. Other stops for the royal couple will include County Kildare, County Meath, and Galway.

A statement from Kensington palace confirmed before the couple left for their trip that they will be hoping to bolster the relationship between Britain and Ireland with their visit.
That relationship seems to be atop the Queen and her court’s priorities, especially in the wake of Brexit. Reconciliation seems to be the theme of their trip, and they will be hoping to leave on Friday with a renewed sense of co-operation from their neighbours.

Sadly, their Friday return date won’t provide them with the opportunity to attend the Endeavour Fund Awards.
Prince Harry inaugurated the award ceremony as a means to help reward some of the country’s wounded servicemen and women with the support and counsel they’ll need to begin a new phase of their lives.
Prince Harry has committed himself to attend the awards since it was inaugurated back in 2017, and he will be attending this year’s event on Thursday with Meghan Markle by his side.
