The Royal Prince and Irish American Meghan Markle are set to visit Dublin following their wedding in May.
It is being reported that Prince Harry and former Suits star Meghan Markle will travel to Ireland, shortly after their wedding, on May 19, for a “mini-moon” over two days.
The Royals are following in the footsteps of celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Kayne (aka Kimye) who honeymooned in Ireland in 2014.
This will be the second Royal visit to Ireland this summer, with Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla, due to visit in late April or early May.
The British Prince and Meghan Markle, who has Irish roots, will be married on May 19, at St. George’s Chapel, on the grounds of Windsor Castle, outside London. The wedding will be a public event, with TV cameras inside the church and more than 2,000 members of the public invited to watch the carriage procession.
Until now there has been nothing revealed about the Royal honeymoon, but The Herald has now revealed that the newly-weds have planned a trip to Dublin shortly after the wedding.
The source told the Dublin newspaper “It will possibly be the first foreign trip after their wedding.”
Prince Harry has never visited Ireland but Markle spent some time in the Emerald Island in 2014, as an ambassador for the One Young World summit.
Of course, the itinerary of the young royal’s visit, in June or July, is only in the planning stages and due to security reasons will not be released.
However, it’s been said that given the current political climate, due to ongoing Brexit talks the Royal visit could be good for Anglo-Irish relations.
In recent years Ireland has been no stranger to visits from the Royal family and it has become a favorite of the Prince Charles and Camilla.
In May 2017, the couple made a three-day tour, including stops in Kilkenny and the Curragh, in Kildare. They also attended a ceremony honoring Irish soldiers who died in the 1916 Rising and World War I, as well as visiting the grave of Michael Collins in Glasnevin Cemetery.
During their visit in 2018, during the early summer, it’s expected they will base themselves in Dublin and attend events outside the capital.
