Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall: Visit to Ireland, May 9 - 12th, 2017

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall visit Northern Ireland and Ireland from 9th to 12th May. Their Royal Highnesses arrive in County Antrim on Tuesday 9th May, before moving to Dublin on Wednesday 10th to undertake a joint official visit.

The visit to Ireland is at the request of the British Government and follows the visits the couple made to the country in 2015 and 2016. As on those occasions, this visit will showcase the strength and vitality of the connections between the United Kingdom and Ireland; and the friendship and partnership that has defined our relationship over recent years. The Prince and Duchess's programme will allow them to honour those men and women whose sacrifice in times of conflict shaped our two countries' shared history; and to celebrate all that we do together to cement peace and secure a prosperous future.

In Northern Ireland, Their Royal Highnesses will undertake a range of engagements, including hosting a musical evening at Hillsborough Castle. The royal couple will also officially open a memorial garden to members of the Police Service Northern Ireland who lost their lives in the service of the people of Northern Ireland.

On arrival in Dublin, the Prince and Duchess will be received by President Higgins and Sabina Higgins at the president's residence, Áras an Uachtaráin. Other highlights of Their Royal Highnesses' third official visit to Ireland will include an engagement at Kilkenny Castle, where they will see some traditional music and watch a hurling demonstration by the Gaelic Athletic Association; His Royal Highness will tour the United Nations Training School Ireland at the Curragh Camp; Her Royal Highness will visit the Irish National Stud and the Prince and Duchess will attend ceremonies at Glasnevin Cemetery in Dublin to commemorate those who lost their lives in the First World War and during the Easter Rising.

Whilst in Dublin, His Royal Highness will also meet the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, and Their Royal Highnesses will conclude their visit by attending a reception at the British Ambassador's residence.

Really behind, just catching up on this trip. Thanks for all photos and videos.

Charles and Camilla really do make such a great team. They are so natural and seem to enjoy these and each other.

This has been another really lovely visit by Charles and Camilla. They do really seem to love the visits to Ireland.

Charles successfully hitting the sliotar with the hurl after a bit of earlier direction from "King" Henry Sheffin is a classic.

Also, Camilla surprised by a bystander on a walkabout loving her Claddagh brooch.

Looking forward to having them back again!

I wonder how successful a tour is when there is virtually no coverage of said tour. The British media hardly run any stories on it at all - look at this site. This is the 20th entry for a four day tour.

That says it all really - no interest at all - even amongst royal watchers. Sad but true - the heir to the British throne doesn't rate any coverage in the media or on royal discussion boards.
