The red carpet will be rolled out in various locations around Dublin today and tomorrow for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who are making their first official state visit.

Somewhat bizarrely, it's also Harry's first-ever visit to Ireland - although Markle has, of course, been here before (and pulled a half-decent pint while she was at it.)

The newly-married royals will meet Taoiseach Leo Varadkar today at Leinster House, as well as a visit to the British Ambassador's home, Glencairn House in Shankill, for a garden party reception (we're guessing cucumber and watercress sambos with the crusts cut off are on the menu).

Tomorrow is a bit more exciting, as they'll head to Aras an Uachtarain to meet President Miggeldy Higens (and his doggos, presumably), as well as Trinity College and The Book of Kells, and the Famine Memorial and the EPIC Emigration Museum - where Markle will learn about her Irish ancestors.

They'll also take in a trip to technology start-up DogPatch Labs (also in the CHQ Building, beside the EPIC Museum) and Croke Park tomorrow for a GAA festival, where kids will show off their skills - and where a photoshoot standing awkwardly with hurleys is inevitable.
