The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are visiting Ireland for three days on a royal visit, and are due to take in Dublin, Meath, Kildare, and Galway as part of their first trip together to the Irish Republic.

They have embarked on what Kensington Palace described as a program to take in the country’s “rich culture, its impactful community, and spectacular scenery.”

On arrival at Dublin Airport, they were greeted by the British ambassador to Ireland, Robin Barnett, and then they headed straight to the presidential residence in Phoenix Park, which is called Áras an Uachtaráin – our version of the White House.

There they were greeted by President Michael D Higgins, and his wife Sabina, as well as their beautiful dog Bród. (Bród is the Irish word for Proud). Will and Kate rang the Peace Bell and signed the Visitors Book.
