The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Dublin International Airport on Tuesday afternoon to start their first official royal tour of Ireland.

The couple both dressed diplomatically in varying shades of green.

Prince William, 37, wore a forest green tie while Kate, 38, was clad in a head-to-toe green ensemble.

The mum-of-three’s dark green coat by British designer Catherine Walker (a favourite of Princess Diana) and co-ordinating suede heels complimented her husband’s outfit.

However, it was Kate’s striking midi dress that took centre stage.

The bold emerald dress, featuring an abstract rose print was by London-based brand, Alessandra Rich.

The designer item from Rich’s spring 2020 collection currently isn’t available to purchase.

Duchess Kate has been seen in numerous of Rich’s designs in recent years. She first debuted a ‘80s-inspired polka-dot dress during Prince Charles’ 70th birthday portraits in November 2018.

She consequently re-wore the dress in May 2019 during a visit to the Bletchley Park D-Day Exhibition.

The ensemble was finished off with a green clutch by one of the duchess’ go-to high street brands: L.K. Bennett.

The suede envelope style is currently on sale for a limited time, reduced from £150 to £112.50.

It also comes in numerous other shades, from timeless black to fuchsia pink.

The first day of the tour will also see the duke and duchess lay a wreath at The Garden of Remembrance, as well as attended an evening reception at The Guinness Store House.
