Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex looked enthralled as she was greeted by two beautiful dogs during an engagement in Dublin.
Prior to joining the royal family, the 36-year-old would frequently post photos of her two dogs – Guy and Beagle – on her now-deleted Instagram account.
So perhaps it’s no surprise the dog-loving duchess looked so happy to meet Bród and Síoda, the two gorgeous Bernese Mountain dogs owned by Ireland’s president, Michael D. Higgins.
Meghan and her husband Prince Harry arrived in Dublin on Tuesday night for a two-day royal visit, their first overseas visit as a married couple.
On the itinerary on Wednesday morning was a meeting with President Higgins and his wife at their home, Áras an Uachtaráin.
Both Meghan and Harry, 33, were seen smiling at the couple’s dogs and bending down to stroke them outside the impressive property.
It’s a busy agenda for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Ireland.
They were greeted by Ireland’s Taoiseach Leo Varadkar on their arrival and went on to attend a garden party at the British Ambassador’s official residence.
Other engagements pencilled in for Wednesday include visiting Dublin’s famine memorial and the Book of Kells, and touring Croke Park, which is the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association.
They’ll also visit the CHQ museum and EPIC Irish emigrant museum, and DogPatch Labs, a working space for tech start-ups, before heading back to London on Tuesday night.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s visit to Ireland was at the request of the government, and came just a few months after they visited Northern Ireland as an engaged couple.
It’s been a busy week for the couple so far, starting with an appearance at the christening of Prince Louis at The Chapel Royal, St James’ Palace on Monday.

There was a service at Westminster Abbey followed by a ceremony in the Buckingham Palace forecourt where The Queen gave a speech and presented a new Queen’s Colour to the RAF.
Meghan also enjoyed her second ever Buckingham Palace balcony appearance as the royals watched a fly-past involving around 100 aircraft.
