British Royals Prince William and Kate Middleton are to visit Ireland next month.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make their official two-day visit here on Tuesday, March 3rd.

The trip will be made at the request of the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The announcement was made by Kensington Palace this afternoon.

The details of the visit have not yet been announced.

However, it has been speculated that they may travel to Dublin and Cork.

In 2011, the Queen became the first British Royal to come to Ireland on an official visit in 100 years.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have visited Ireland several times in recent years, while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle came here on a two-day trip in July 2018.
