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.
