It's been a busy day for The Duchess of Sussex!
First she joined the rest of the royal family to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force and now she's touched down in Dublin on her first overseas tour with her husband Prince Harry!
Meghan wore a dark navy Dior dress earlier in the day featuring a boat-neck cut, but has now changed into a forest green pencil skirt and matching top.
The stylish set is by Givenchy, who are, of course, the label behind Meghan's iconic wedding dress.
We love the gorgeous green shade that is very fitting for their visit. The flap-front pockets of the skirt add a stylish detail, and Meghan has accessorized perfectly with tan shoes and a tote by her favorite go-to accessories label, Strathberry.

The Duchess wore her hair in a neat updo with a side parting, lending a less severe look to the formal style. She wore her hair in swept back bun with a centre parting to a reception at Marlborough House in London last week

The Palace said they will visit the Book of Kells, an illuminated manuscript of the four gospels of the New Testament in Latin, and ‘one of Ireland’s greatest cultural treasures’.
They will also visit the Famine Memorial, EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum, and Dogpatch Labs, a startup hub in Dublin’s Digital Docklands.
At DogPatch Labs, Harry and Meghan will meet young people taking part in free coding workshops, as well as female tech entrepreneurs.
Meghan supports Scottish brand Strathberry in Dublin
Meghan carried a £495 midi-tote in burgundy, navy and vanilla by the small Scottish brand Strathberry for her first official engagement as Harry’s bride-to-be back in November.
And the stylish bag was later revealed to have sold out in just 11 minutes according to the label, launched in 2013.
When Meghan opted for a bottle green Strathberry East/ West mini for her first official visit to Scotland in February – within minutes it was listed as out of stock on the retailer’s website.
Today she showed her support for the brand yet again in Dublin, carrying its Midi Tote in tan leather, costing £475.
Strathberry was founded by couple Guy and Leeanne Hundleby who left their jobs in finance to establish the brand.
The Hundlebys previously revealed sales overall have sky-rocketed by 40 per cent since it emerged that the former actress is a fan.
Meghan sparked a sales frenzy when she sported the Strathberry Midi Tote in burgundy, navy and vanilla for her first official engagement with Harry in Nottingham in December 2017

This engagement is likely to be of particular interest to the Duchess, who has been outspoken on the topic of female empowerment.
It’s been a busy time for the newlyweds who kicked off the week by attending Prince Louis’ christening at St James’s Palace on Monday.
Earlier today, they joined fellow members of the royal family for service to mark 100 years of the RAF at Westminster Abbey, followed by a flypast at Buckingham Palace.
