Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton are in Ireland for a three-day visit.

The couple touched down at Dublin Airport just after 2.00pm.

Their first stop was a meeting with President Michael D Higgins at Áras an Uachtaráin.

The couples discussed the close ties between the people of Ireland and Britain, and the importance of continuing and deepening close relations.

President Higgins, his wife Sabina and the royal couple also spoke about the implications of the UK's departure from the European Union, and the importance of continuing to build on the foundations of the Good Friday Agreement.

William and Kate also got on well with Bród, one of the President's dogs.

The other dog, Síoda, has had surgery on her paw and so felt it best to sit out the royal visit.

From there, they laid a wreath at the Garden of Remembrance in the city centre.

William and Kate then went to Government Buildings and were met by acting Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and his partner, Matt Barrett.

They travelled on to Farmleigh and will later visit the Guinness Storehouse.

They'll also travel to Meath, Kildare and Galway as part of the trip.
