Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announce their first Royal visit to Ireland in March

THE DUKE and Duchess of Cambridge have announced that they will be visiting Ireland in three weeks' time.

The trip will mark their very royal visit to the country.

A statement from the official Kensington Palace Twitter page confirmed the news that Prince William and his wife will be in the country next month for three day visit.

The statement reads: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will undertake an official visit to Ireland between Tuesday 3rd March and Thursday 5th March, at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office #RoyalVisitIreland."

Details of their visit are yet to be confirmed but it's understood the Royal couple will visit Dublin and Cork during their stay.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited Ireland last year but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have never been, despite visiting Northern Ireland on a couple of occasions.

The Queen visited Ireland in 2011 in what was described by outgoing Tánaiste Simon Coveney as a "watershed moment" for British-Irish relations.

The British Embassy in Dublin tweeted today: "We look forward to welcoming The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Ireland next month."
