Meghan and Harry, who tied the knot at St George's Chapel nearly two months ago, looked completely in love and held hands as they arrived at the Chapel Royal, at St James' Palace, alongside the Cambridges, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Meghan made third outfit change of the day and swapped her forest green Givenchy skirt and top ensemble for a sleeveless black dress with pockets and a belt by Emilia Wickstead.

After arriving at Dublin City Airport, Harry and Meghan were due to meet with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

It comes "at the request of Her Majesty's Government", a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said. On Wednesday, they are expected to visit a Gaelic sports festival at Croke Park before taking a tour of the famous Trinity College. It was 100 years ago on April 1 1918 that the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged to create the RAF - the world's first independent air service.

In 2011, the Queen became the first British monarch to visit Ireland since the visit by her grandfather, George V, in 1911.

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.

It's a festive week for the royal family. Ireland's national broadcaster carried live coverage of the royal wedding, part of a global TV audience of many millions.

The royal joined Prince Harry for their flight into Dublin, Ireland to kick off their official two-day visit in the country on Tuesday (July 10).
