Royal Trip of the Day: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Ireland

The Windsors are keeping the big events coming this week, and we're just trying to keep up. Right after attending the events for the RAF's centenary, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hit the road (er, the skies, I guess) for their first international trip together: two days in Ireland.

Green Givenchy separates marked the start of the trip, and would be the closest to a non-neutral this trip got. I am not showing her bag here because if I look at it any longer, my wallet might get itself into trouble. I trust you understand my plight.

For a summer garden party at the British Ambassador's residence, Meghan wore a FAB black dress by Emilia Wickstead! I'm so glad she returned to the designer. Meghan's shown great support for women designers, and this makes two great Wickstead looks.

Speaking of FAB: that hair.

On day 2, the couple had a very important meeting with Ireland's First Dogs, Bród and Síoda. Also they met with President Higgins and his spouse, Sabina Coyne.

Roland Mouret blending right into all that stone doesn't do it for me, I'm afraid. Nor do I think it's doing it for her. So moving on...

The couple squeezed in a bunch of other stops before they wrapped it up, which meant that this last outfit had to do everything from hanging out with kids on an athletic field to visiting the Famine Memorial. I don't love the boxier style of this black Givenchy suit, but I find myself leaning towards a well played simply for being a solution that looked at home in each situation.

And that's it! A tiny tour handled, like a warm up for their tour this autumn.
