A cute video from the walkabout. The woman was so happy to meet Meghan, and Meghan mentions her Grandma at the end.

I guess I would give up my privacy and my anonymity to spend a couple days with the Book of Kells and a couple months with Brian Boru's harp. I have the sheet music written by Turlough O'Carolan and would love to go off into my own world and learn to play them on that harp. (I previously played these tunes on the fiddle and the hammered dulcimer). Ahh... one can dream.

Y'know, I've heard it said that some men and most all dogs are chick magnets. Harry most definitely is a child magnet. Meghan ranks right up there with him. It will be a pleasure watching these two with their own children.

This trip to Ireland is going beautifully and Harry and Meghan seem to be enjoying themselves.

People has a nice video of pictures and video from earlier today's events. There is a little girl that touched Meghan's face in addition to the little boy that went for Harry's beard.

ETA: Apparently that was a little boy. Photos below.

Is it though? People say this but BRF members pretty regularly wade into issues that have political undercurrents. Harry, William and Charles all regularly touch on political issues even if people fudge that. William and Harry do it more delicately than the POW.

The Irish referendum was a huge deal. Massive. And was on an issue that is legal in the UK. Much ado about nothing and IMO shows Meghan is rather well informed of things going on in the world.


But I am aware I will be in the minority on the view!

And they have all taken some heavy criticism for that. Charles in particular will have to be very, very careful when he becomes king, because constitutionally he cannot be seen as being political, and he has crossed the line more than once as PoW.

And they are actual members of the royal family; Meghan, Catherine, Camilla, et. al. need to be even more careful.

The Duke and Duchess visit the GAA Headquaters at Croke Park and then at Trinity College in central Dublin the Book of Kells is housed here.

It all sounds and looks absolutely delicious. However, the starter would be enough for me, with a nice glass of white wine. I'll forgo the Guinness, thanks!

Harry and Meghan were, hardly surprisingly, very moved at the Famine Memorial.

I actually quite enjoyed Guinness while I was in Europe. Not so much in the States.

Yes, it's supposed to be very good for you. My grandfather had a glass every day for about fifty years (it was originally recommended as a tonic to 'build him up' after an illness) and he lived to be ninety.

Too heavy for me though. I prefer lager.

I love Guinness myself. People think I'm odd because I drink it at room temperature and never put in the refrigerator but I think it tastes best that way.

I personally hate Guinness far too heavy for me I prefer Cider moreso in the summer!

The visit to the Famine Memorial at Custom House Quay in the Dublin Docklands,perhaps one of Meghan's Irish ancestors left Ireland during that terrible time and might have struck a chord

Guiness is ok when done right! There is a great Irish pub here in DC that I love getting various Guinness drinks at.

Otherwise it is rather heavy.

Mind sharing via PM? I might stop by there next time I'm in DC. Haven't found a good one in the States.

I've been to Fado Irish Pub in DC as it was close to ice rink for hockey games. Its been a while though. Absolutely the best place to get Guinness on draft is at an Irish pub and I've been known to gravitate towards those.

The Irish have long memories and I grew up with stories about the Great Hunger and just how hard the times were during the potato famine. My grandparents were born in late 1800s and had many, many stories to tell. Its something that I hope never, ever happens again on this earth.

This is one trip to Ireland that I wish I could have hidden away in one of Harry or Meghan's suitcases and had a cloak of invisibility to follow them around.

Incorrect - it's not legal here in Northern Ireland (except in extreme circumstances) which is in the UK. Abortion is an enormously difficult political issue here, as just about everything is in this very divided little bit of land. Any comment by a British royal approving of abortion is a gigantic no-no and I say that as someone who feels it should be legalised in NI.

I would've thought a tie at the famine memorial would've been a good idea for Harry. Much too casual.

Other than that, fairly bog standard stuff for a visit of British royals to Dublin. No trip up the road to Kilkeel, their barony! Very unfortunate.

You are very right, I utterly forgot about NI! Long day at work already has been having some brain fog!

True, Its foolish enough to make comments on controversial issues in the UK.. (or even human rights abuses elsewhere) but to say something indiscreet about a very controversial issues in another country, and one which has had a difficult relationship with the UK... that's very foolish indeed.

Last port of call for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, meeting children at Dublin tech start-up, Dogpatch.



I think the Duke and Duchess had rather successful brief visit on their 1st overseas trip hopefully the Duke gets to watch the match!
