A few days late for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry touched down in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Friday in a surprise visit. Kensington Palace did not announce the news of the couple’s public appearance until moments before they arrived.
Northern Ireland is the final part of the United Kingdom that Meghan had not before visited since her engagement to Prince Harry last fall. She has previously made public appearances in England, Wales, and Scotland.
The former Suits star wowed in a forest green Greta Constantine skirt, cream Victoria Beckham top, beige Mackage coat, and Jimmy Choo heels. She paired the look with a brown Charlotte Elizabeth purse. Meghan wore her hair up in a sleek bun.
Prince Harry went casual in black jeans, a royal blue sweater, collared white shirt and a grey sport coat.
The couple has a full day of engagements in Northern Ireland, starting off at the Eikon Centre in Lisburn for an event to mark the youth-led peace-building initiative, Amazing the Space. While there they will watch performances by young people and hear their “Peace Pledges.”
They will then visit The Crown Liquor Saloon, a National Trust site in Belfast, for lunch and to learn about the pub’s heritage. From there they will go to Catalyst Inc., a next generation science park, to meet young entrepreneurs and innovators. They will finish out the day touring one of Belfast’s most popular attractions – the Titanic Belfast museum.
The couple is preparing for their May 19 nuptials, but has been keeping a busy calendar. Watch the clip below for more!
