Fans of the royal family were still a bit sad that they missed out on the details of the secret honeymoon but at least now they get to see their beloved royals back to work.

On their first stop in Dublin, Ireland, the royals got a rousing welcome from a gathering of locals. The Duke and Duchess took time to greet the excited crowd, shaking hands and posing for pictures. No selfies though.
The Duchess received a particularly pleasant welcoming present, a bouquet of fresh sunflowers that rivaled her smile. Nothing beats the warm Irish hospitality the royal couple received. And seeing as London is not so far off, it is possible the flowers will make it back home and find a place on a mantle or coffee table. What are the odds?
In the meantime, the Duchess is gaining even more popularity and more people find similarities between her and the late Princess Diana. It is a well-known fact that the Duchess idolizes Diana and perhaps, she unconsciously gives off the same charm.
She’s so like Princess Diana… Always warm and embracing everyone. They’d make wonderful rulers.

The Dublin crowds were impressive and supportive towards the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Meghan and Harry are such naturals with the crowds too.

The Duke and Duchess are quite loved by Britons and also the Irish as they seem to connect more on a personal level than other royals. We expect that their trip will be a lot of fun as they mingle with the people and learn a bit more about their neighbors.
