Kate Middleton and Prince William landed in Ireland on March 3 to begin their first official tour of the country.
The Duchess honoured the Emerald Isle by wearing vivid shades of green as she exited an Aer Lingus plane at the Dublin International Airport. Kate was spotted wearing a forest green Catherine Walker coat and a stunning emerald dress by Alessandra Rich, which was just visible beneath the long-line topper. She accessorized the look with a bright suede L.K. Bennett clutch, deep forest green pumps and a black padded headband.
The duke and duchess were quickly whisked away to a meeting with the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, at Áras an Uachtaráin, his official workplace and residence. Inside, Kate and William removed their coats, giving royals fans a glimpse of the exquisite pleated detail, ornate buttons and swirling print on Kate’s Alessandra Rich dress. The dress also featured balloon sleeves, a key trend for spring 2020.
She wore her brunette locks down in her signature voluminous style, and gave a glam updated to the on-trend padded headband with a pair of diamond earrings from Asprey London. As usual, the Duchess kept her makeup soft and natural.
William also paid tribute to their host country by wearing a hunter green tie with his white button-down and navy coat and suit.
Royals fans can expect to see plenty more of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the coming days. The couple are touring Ireland from March 3 to March 5. The royal tour of the Emerald Isle, which is their first official one, will see them make appearances in Dublin, County Meath, County Kildare and Galway. The tour is focused on strengthening the relationship between Ireland and the UK.
