The newlyweds kicked off their second day in Ireland with diplomacy, sports and a dive into the rich heritage of Dublin.

After meeting President Michael Higgins at his residence Áras an Uachtaráin, Harry and Meghan, who wore a taupe green dress (with another boatneck!) by Roland Mouret, headed to the city’s famous Croke Park to see some of the traditional sports of the country.

Harry, 33, has put the benefits of sports at the heart of his public work. When he and Meghan, 36, toured the U.K. in the run-up to their May 19 wedding, they featured youth sports on their stop in Wales.

Meghan changed into a sleek pair of black pants paired with a black blazer and fitted white shirt for their next excursion. She also let down her hair into loose waves.

Later on Wednesday, there will be a chance for the couple to immerse themselves in some of the history of Ireland — with a view of the Book of Kells, a 9th-century illustrated depiction of the Bible’s four Gospels and one of the world’s most famous manuscripts.
