It seems bets weren't far off, as the couple were believed to be make their Irish debut around Friday the 13th of July.
According to the Irish Independent, the world's most talked about couple may only be on Irish shores for just over 24 hours.
A further tweet noted, "The Duke and Duchess are looking forward to learning more about Ireland's history and experiencing its rich culture, as well as meeting the people who are shaping the country's future."
The Daily Mirror speculates that the lovebirds will also visit Dublin's iconic university Trinity College and meet President Michael D. Higgins at Aras an Uachtaráin. The outlet half-jokingly adds that a visit to the Guinness Storehouse could well be on the cards too.
It's also reported that the couple could spend the night at Fermoy, Co. Cork's exclusive Ballyvolane House - as Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. the Duchess of Cornwall, stayed there last week.
While Prince Harry has never visited Ireland before, his new bride spent time in the country as as an ambassador for the One Young World summit in 2014.
