Location of Meghan Markle’s first trip abroad with Prince Harry is unexpected

Meghan Markle’s first international trip with Prince Harry will be to Ireland to ‘learn more about its history’ and ‘experience its rich culture’.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who are presenting the winning trophy at Royal Ascot together today – will visit Dublin for a two-day trip on July 10 and 11.

Kensington Palace said the visit "is at the request of Her Majesty’s Government".

In a statement it added: "They are looking forward to learning more about Ireland’s history and experiencing its rich culture, as well as meeting the people who are shaping the country’s future."

It’s expected the couple will visit the capital’s iconic university, Trinity College, and will meet Michael D. Higgins at Aras an Uachtaráin.

Harry and Meghan are also expected to visit Dublin’s Guinness Storehouse, a popular destination for many visitors to the city.

The news comes after Harry’s father Prince Charles visited Ireland with his wife Camilia.

It’s believed the Royal couple stayed at the beautiful Ballyvolane House outside Fermoy in Co Cork while they were here.

The historic Irish country house exudes extraordinary warmth, style and comfort as well as providing luxury accommodation and salmon to lucky guests and RSVP Live can reveal that the Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were guests during the week.

Ballyvolane only features six exclusive bedrooms and they will set you back around €220/€240 for a one night stay.

Later today Harry and Meghan will present the winning trophy for the 4.20pm race, the St James’ Palace Stakes, said the official Royal Ascot programme.
