Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's next big trip to Ireland
Harry and Meghan may have just returned from their ultra-secret honeymoon in Africa, but it appears the newlyweds won’t be slowing down their travel schedule anytime soon. As Kensington Palace shared in a tweet on June 19th, both Meghan and Harry will soon be making their way to Ireland on an official visit.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Dublin, Ireland on 10th & 11th July. The visit is at the request of Her Majesty’s Government,” the tweet read.
In a follow-up tweet, the palace added, “They 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.”
Though their full itinerary has yet to be announced, Tourism Ireland told the Irish Times that the visit will be be a “wonderful opportunity to showcase Dublin and Ireland to a huge audience of prospective holidaymakers.”
According to People, odds are the couple will pay a visit to the famed Guinness Storehouse. There, the beer brand showcases the nation’s strong brewing history. As People also noted, Meghan appears to be a longtime fan of the brewery — she was pictured pouring a pint there when she visited Dublin way back in her pre-duchess days in 2013.

Of course, this isn’t the first time the couple has traveled to Ireland. Just prior to their wedding, Harry and Meghan paid a visit to Belfast, in the northern part of the country. There, the couple attended a youth-led peace-building event attended by nearly 2,000 students. The program, called Amazing the Space, was launched by Harry on his visit to Ireland last September. During that trip, the pair stopped in at the The Crown Liquor Saloon, a one-time “Victorian gin palace,” for a drink and a laugh with locals, giving even more proof that these two clearly like their Irish drinks — and the Irish people.
