Meghan Markle approved Irish abortion vote, senator claims

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are on day 2 of their Ireland duties, and they cut quite the fashionable looks on Wednesday.

Noone was quick to backtrack on her tweet as many pointed out members of the royal family are required to refrain from making political statements. Although always smartly turned out, in the first few weeks following her wedding, Markle relied on safe outfits in tasteful shades of pink and beige that, while undeniably neat, were a tad unadventurous.

The Duchess began her day in a bespoke Dior little black dress that drew comparisons to her elegant white Givenchy wedding gown, due to its bateau neckline, fitted waist, and flared skirt.

Prince Harry and his wife, the former actress Meghan Markle, met with the Irish president Wednesday on their first official overseas trip as a married couple.

However, on the Duchess of Sussex's recent trip to Ireland, it's believed the 36-year-old broke this royal rule, by revealing that she's pleased the Irish people voted "Yes" in the recent abortion referendum.

The royal couple did a walkabout of the stadium, before stopping to chat to some youngsters.

For their second outing, the royal couple visited Dublin's famous Croke Park to learn about traditional Gaelic games, such as hurling (an ancient Irish field sport) and camogie (a women's stick-and-ball team sport).

The tot also started touching the Duchess' face, prompting Harry to jokingly scold the child by wagging his finger at the kid as Meghan giggled by his side.

Speaking about the relationship between England and Ireland, Harry said: "I have the greatest confidence that the friendship, collaboration and mutual understanding that our two countries have built up over the years will endure and it will grow".

The pair went on to view the Book of Kells, an illuminated Latin manuscript of the Gospel, at Trinity College. She reportedly said "Her dress is identical to one of our dresses".

"She said she was really enjoying her visit and that what I said made it even more special", she said.
