The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive at the Westminster Abbey service.

They are due to meet Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Leo Varadkar and Irish President Michael D Higgins.

The visit, at the request of the British government, is expected to attract a lot of media attention.

Later, they will take part in a Gaelic sports festival where traditional Irish sports like hurling, camogie and rounders will be played.

Meghan, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, attended Prince Louis' christening yesterday looking as stylish and loved up as ever.

Even before leaving for Ireland, it has been a busy week for the newlyweds.

Harry and Meghan's private chartered plane landed in Dublin Airport on Tuesday evening, with Britain's Ambassador to Ireland Robin Barnett and his partner Agnieszka Kepka greeting them as they got off the plane.

Princess Charlotte's major role in Princess Eugenie's wedding
The famous British singer left his band, Take That in 1995, and found huge solo success releasing eleven successful studio albums. Eugenie and Jack met seven years ago at the Swiss ski resort of Verbier and announced their engagement earlier this year.

It was a quick change for the Royal Couple, who left the Royal Air Force Centenary celebrations, including a reception for RAF personnel thrown by the Queen at Buckingham Palace, and seemingly flew straight to the Emerald Isle.

Heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, his son Prince William and wife Kate, and Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, all joined the queen on the palace balcony for the display.

William and Kate's youngest is now fifth in line to the throne, with older siblings Prince George and Princess Charlotte fourth and fifth respectively.

Meghan looked dazzling as she arrived in a stunning Emilia Winstead black dress and stepped out holding hands with a beaming Prince Harry.

Prince Harry and Meghan will have official meetings as well as taking in the cultural aspects of the country.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby, presided over Louis' christening, just as he did for Meghan's baptism and confirmation.
