See Kate Middleton and Prince William's Cutest Moments (and Rare PDA!) on Ireland Tour
The royal parents shared a sweet moment as they took in the incredible view together on Howth Cliff.
The country-loving royals also headed to the rural area of County Meath, 20 miles west of Dublin, to learn more about new thinking in sustainable farming.
During their first day, William and Kate not only met with the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins and his wife Sabina, but the royal parents were also warmly greeted by the president’s Bernese Mountain dog Brod, which means pride in Gaelic.
Brod is no stranger to royal company. Both Brod and the president’s dog Sioda — who missed the couple’s visit due to a paw injury — met William’s brother Prince Harry and sister-in-law Meghan Markle during their visit to Ireland as newlyweds in July 2018.
The couple attended a reception held at the Gravity bar at the Guinness Storehouse, with Kate sporting a metallic emerald dress by The Vampire's Wife in a nod to her host country’s signature color. She accessorized with a clutch and velvet heels.
Kate sipped a Guinness as she and William met locals from the worlds of the creative arts, sports, business and charity. The bar, providing panoramic views of the city, was the setting for the party hosted by the British ambassador Robin Barnett.
The royal couple — Kate wore a white Reiss coat that she's had since her dating years with William — kicked off day two of their royal tour with a visit to a mental health charity in Dublin to see how the issue of mental health awareness is being tackled among the youth in Ireland. They will also pay a visit to a social justice charity and witness the efforts being made to foster and support sustainable farming.
Kate stunned in a vintage magenta dress by Oscar de la Renta that had a total ’80s vibe with black polka dots and a ruffled collar (like Princess Diana!) to conclude the second day of her and Prince William's Ireland tour with a reception in Dublin held in their honor.
She paired the look with her signature black clutch, black heels and a pair of gold hoop earrings. Kate, who typically wears her hair down around her shoulders in her signature bouncy blowout, had her hair pulled back in a chic ponytail.
Kate and William wrapped up the third day of their tour in Ireland by taking in the culture and meeting locals in the lively west coast city of Galway. The couple went on a walkabout near an Irish pub in the heart of Galway, which is on Ireland’s Atlantic coast.
The royal parents kicked off the day at an event highlighting the rich history and diversity of Irish culture at a landmark art deco building — the Tribeton. They were there to celebrate the fact the city is European Capital of Culture for 2020, and some of the festival’s acts, including Livefeed, Hoops and the Galway Community Circus, were there to entertain the couple.
William also took the opportunity to provide his own impromptu entertainment, showcasing impressive juggling skills by successfully keeping three balls airborne without so much as a hint of a drop.
The sporty couple finished their tour by joining children and young people from a local Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) as they took part in matches on the pitch.
Kate even tried her hand at the traditional Irish sport of hurling!
Princess Kate, known for her athletic abilities, reacted with surprise after hitting the ball in a game of hurling.
