Kate Middleton and Prince William’s royal tour of Ireland has begun—and the Duchess of Cambridge is kicking it off on a sartorial high note. The couple was photographed arriving at Dublin airport, Kate wearing an Alessandra Rich lime green print dress with a Catherine Walker emerald green coat. The two were greeted by the Irish government and the British Ambassador to Ireland.
The two have a packed afternoon. Their first stop will be at the Garden of Remembrance, where they will lay a wreath. They will also meet the Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar. Their day will end with a reception at the Gravity Bar at the Guinness Storehouse.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s full visit will be three days, March 3 through 5. The couple will be spending time in Dublin, County Meath, County Kildare, and Galway. The Palace announced ahead of their arrival that their trip will “focus on the relationship between [the UK and Ireland], and build on the theme of remembrance and reconciliation.”
This is a busy week generally for the royal family, including Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. On March 5, Meghan and Harry will be doing their first joint event together since they announced their decision to step back from their senior royal family roles. The couple will attend the Endeavor Awards.
On March 7, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the Mountbatten Festival of Music. Kate and William will do their first joint event with Meghan and Harry in months when the couples join the Queen at the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
