Recently, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived in Ireland to kick off their first royal overseas tour as husband and wife. At the request of the Queen, the Duke and Duchess plan on visiting many local cultural locations, including Gaelic Sports Festival and Trinity College, where the Book of Kells is currently held.
On their first day, the happy couple met with the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, and his wife, Sabina, along with their furry companions, their dogs. All four rang the peace bell together.
Later, the Duke and Duchess changed clothes and traveled to Croke Park which is home of Ireland's largest sporting organization, the Gaelic Athletic Association. The two royals enjoyed the company of the athletes who were on the field, including a 3-year-old sweetheart named Walter Cullen, who was quite smitten with Meghan.
The cheeky toddler couldn't help but touch Meghan's hair. The Duchess even let the young chap touch her face. Their interaction has taken the Internet by storm as Meghan literally let her hair down for the casual event and allowed the boy to touch her wavey curles.
On their second day in Dublin, the Duchess was about to encounter a difficult task. The risky part about it was that millions were watching as she took the battle on.
Meghan was sporting a black Givenchy trouser suit with a white top and Sarah Flint heels. Did we mention that the stilettos were 3-inches high and that she was going head-to-head with cobblestone streets?
In the end, the rough streets were no match for the veteran heel-wearer. The Duchess' grace and coordination were elegantly displayed as she managed to conquer the cobblestone streets.
As she and Harry toured the Irish Famine Memorial, which was surrounded entirely by cobblestones, they greeted several of their fans. One fan, in particular, noticed Meghan's current task and asked how she was coping with the streets in her heels. Meghan responded, "I'm trying!"
The heel-master even managed to walk across the grassy field at Croke Park without even a hint of a wobble. This leads many to wonder if that 6-month royal training course included ankle strength training. Who knows, but the Duchess was poised as always and didn't miss a beat.
What do you think about Meghan's strong ankles? Do you think she handled herself gracefully? Let us know!
