During their visit to Dublin, Their Royal Highnesses will learn about Ireland's culture and heritage, including a visit to Trinity College, where they will see the Book of Kells, one of Ireland's greatest cultural treasures. The Duke and Duchess will also have a moment for reflection at the Famine Memorial, before visiting EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum, telling the story of the 10 million Irish people who have emigrated across the world.
Their Royal Highnesses will also learn more about the bright future of Ireland during their time in Dublin, with a visit to DogPatch Labs, a co-working space for technology start-ups. Here, The Duke and Duchess will meet children and young people taking part in free coding workshops, and will also have the opportunity to talk to female tech entrepreneurs.
The programme will include official meetings with The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and with The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar.
