The Cambridges' three-day visit to the Emerald Isle aims to "highlight the many strong links between the UK and Ireland" and will "focus on the relationship between the two countries, and build on the theme of remembrance and reconciliation."
William and Kate's visit follows in the footsteps of the Queen's historic trip to the country in 2011, the first time a reigning British monarch had visited in 100 years, back when the entire island was still part of the United Kingdom.
