The Duke and Duchess of Sussex flew into Ireland yesterday for their first royal engagement overseas as a married couple. 

They attended a star-studded garden party at the British ambassador's residence at Glencairn in south Dublin where they met with actors, athletes, activists and academics.

It's never easy choosing an outfit for a special occasion, so what exactly does one wear when meeting a royal? 

Sinead Burke
Irish writer, academic and broadcaster Sinéad Burke spoke with Meghan about the importance and power of fashion. Sinéad wore a custom dress from Irish designer Richard Malone.

Aisling Bea
Comedian and activist Aisling Bea always dresses with style and purpose, whether it be advocating for ethical designers or supporting homegrown talent.

For the royal visit, the comedian stayed true to form as she wore a Simone Rocha dress with accessories from Chupi and Laura Whitmore. 

Amy Huberman
IFTA-winning actress, designer and author Amy Huberman stole the show in a shimmering gold dress with frill detailing which she paired with peep-toe shoes.

As it turns out, Huberman borrowed the dress from a friend who had picked it up in Havana boutique in Donnybrook. 

Louise McSharry
Not only did RTÉ 2fm's Louise McSharry wear an Irish design from Helen Steele but she managed to play an Irish-only playlist for the entire event.

Barry Keoghan
Dunkirk actor Barry Keoghan chatted with Prince Harry alongside Outlander actress Caitriona Balfe and Striking Out actor Moe Dunford.

Keoghan was added to the Dior 'style squad' by the brand's creative director Kris Van Assche last year and has been wearing the Dior Homme collection ever since. Yesterday was no different as the Dublin man chose a Dior suit and a Lanvin shirt.

Lucy Kennedy
TV presenter Lucy Kennedy wore a full-length Geraldine O’Meara design for the occasion.

We were delighted to see so many of the stars taking the opportunity to support Irish brands.
