The couple will attend a summer party at the British Ambassador's residence. The Queen is scheduled to meet President Donald Trump later this week.

The Duke and Duchess will then visit Croke Park, the home of Ireland's largest sporting organisation, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA).

They will also visit some of the city's main cultural attractions, including Ireland's oldest university, Trinity College, and Croke Park, where British troops opened fire on a crowd almost a century ago, on a day known as Bloody Sunday during Ireland's War of Independence.

Harry and Meghan will "meet the people of Dublin and visit organisations which are central to Irish life".

The Duke and Duchess will also pay a visit to the Famine Memorial, where they'll pay their respects, before visiting the Irish Emigration Museum.

Those who met them said that they praised Belfast people saying that they were "so friendly and warm".

The trip is largely focused on cementing ties and ensuring that strong relationships between the United Kingdom and Ireland remain in the wake of Brexit.

The choice of designer is interesting considering Wickstead publicly called out the Givenchy and Claire Waight Keller wedding dress made of Meghan for being similar to her own dresses.

This won't be Meghan's first trip to Dublin - she visited as a tourist five years ago when she was still an actress enjoying the perks of TV fame.

In 2013, she was picking up an award for her role in the USA legal drama Suits.
