"We're so pleased to be here, for our first official global visit together as a married couple, and we hope it will be the first of many!" said Prince Harry in a Tuesday night garden party speech.
Even royal biographer Andrew Morton said that having children would be a priority for the couple, owing to Meghan's age and comments each has made about starting a family. But the simple evening LBD Meghan chose for the garden party in Ireland makes more than a fashion statement - it tells the designer and the world she's rising above the drama. Although always smartly turned out, in the first few weeks following her wedding, Markle relied on safe outfits in tasteful shades of pink and beige that, while undeniably neat, were a tad unadventurous.
People cheered as the attractive Markle walked down the aisle accompanied by Prince Charles and 10 young page boys and bridesmaids, while Harry waited in a dark formal military dress.
"Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex looked absolutely attractive on her wedding day and I have the utmost admiration and respect for her", she wrote. Noted dog-lover Meghan, who wore a Roland Mouret dress, spent time with the President's mountain dogs.
After attending Prince Louis' christening on Monday and the centenary of the Royal Air Force the following day, newlyweds the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paused for breath, and then flew to Dublin for a two-day official engagement.
"Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Sussex looked absolutely lovely on her wedding day and I have the utmost admiration and respect for her". The happy couple said their own vows as Rachel walked up the aisle with her dad to John Legend's All Of Me.
Britain's royal family has played an important role in developing Anglo-Irish relations in recent years, in particular six years ago when Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, made the first state visit by a British monarch since Ireland won its independence from London in 1921.
Fire or no fire, Meghan is giving everyone something to talk about with her Ireland trip.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as they are formally known, visited President Michael D. Higgins at his official residence as part of their two-day tour of Dublin.
