Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to visit some of Dublin’s tourist hotspots during their two-day trip to Ireland.

THE DUKE AND Duchess of Sussex will meet Taoiseach Leo Varadkar today, as well as taking in a visit to Glencairn House – the official residence of the British Ambassador to Ireland.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also due to visit some of Dublin’s hotspots during their two-day trip to Ireland.

The newly-weds will attend Government Buildings this afternoon to meet the Taoiseach, and then attend a garden party reception in the British ambassador’s home.

On Wednesday, the pair have a packed schedule of events. Their itinerary includes a visit to meet President Michael D Higgins at Áras an Uachtaráin, followed by a walk around Trinity College where they will stop by the Book of Kells.

The couple will then visit the Famine memorial and EPIC- the Irish Emigration Museum at the CHQ building.

It is understood that Markle will have a detailed family tree of her Irish ancestry  information presented to her during her visit to the museum.

A tour will also take place at Croke Park tomorrow.

The last time Markle travelled to Ireland in 2013, the actress visited the Guinness Storehouse where she learned to pour a pint of Guinness in front of the press.

The royal visit follows on from Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s trip to Cork and Kerry last month.
