Newlyweds Harry and Meghan Undertake First Overseas Engagement

Harry and Meghan arrive in Dublin

Harry and Meghan arrive in Dublin

It was a joke, and like all good jokes it revealed more about Prince Harry than he ever meant to disclose.

Their trip also includes a visit to Trinity College, to see and learn about the Book of Kells, one of Ireland's most important cultural treasures.

He was rumoured to be designing the royal wedding dress, but even though Roland Mouret didn't make the cut on her big day, the designer is clearly still one of Meghan's favourites.

She went on to post a photo of her meeting the royal couple, who are on a two day visit to Dublin as their first official global engagement as a married couple.

Harry and Meghan arrived at Áras an Uachtaráin at around 9.30am on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, Harry and Meghan also greeted members of the public at the city's Croke Park, where they both engaged with young fans.

Moreover, just a week or so after that happened, Kensington Palace had to issue a statement reassuring everyone that Meghan was not running for president, as a widespread rumour had been suggesting otherwise.

The Sussex itinerary over the next 24 hours includes receptions, sports and a meeting with Irish President Michael Higgins.

Wickstead, who is already a firm design favourite of Kate Middleton, made headlines in May this year after openly criticising Markle's Givenchy wedding gown and accusing the designer, Clare Waight Keller, of copying her.

"It was exciting to meet them, but I was nervous", she said.

It's interesting to note that Meghan appeared to have eschewed tights on this occasion, breaking with royal protocol. As well as it being one of her most iconic style moments, it was one of the most iconic moments in her life: she was engaged to the future King of England.

The Duchess will get further support from her private secretary, Amy Pickerill, who joined the newlywed last month on her first joint engagement with the Queen, in Cheshire.
