Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will ‘mini-moon’ in Ireland
Prince Harry and his fiancé Meghan Markle are planning to visit Ireland shortly after their wedding for a ‘mini moon’.
The young couple announced they will tie the knot on May 19th in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
The news of the royal wedding has captured the attention of people all across the world.
It is estimated that as many as two billion people will tune it to watch the ceremony.
The location of Harry and Meghan’s honeymoon is unknown, as it will be kept secret for security reasons.
However, it is expected that a brief stop in Dublin will be part of the post-nuptial celebrations.
“It will possibly be the first foreign trip after their wedding,” said a source.
It will be the first time Prince Harry has ever visited Ireland. Meghan spent time here in 2014 as an ambassador for the One Young World summit.
It will be the fist time members of the British royal family have visited Ireland since Prince Charles and Camilla travelled here in May 2017.
They stayed for three days and visited Kilkenny and the Curragh. They also visited the grave of Michael Collins at Glasnevin Cemetery and attended a ceremony to honour the soldiers that died in the Easter Rising and World War One.
However, with Harry and Meghan only expected to stay for one night, they are likely to be based in Dublin for the whole trip.
