Prince William and Kate Middleton have touched down for their trip to Ireland, and it's no surprise that Kate made a typically stylish entrance in a layered outfit in shades of green. 

The couple are here for three days on a trip designed to strengthen the bond between the UK and Ireland, and which will take in official engagements in Dublin, Meath, Kildare, and Galway.

Kate has always made the most of her fashion choices on such trips, communicating her appreciation for the country she's visiting by championing local designers and creatives.

It looks like this trip will be no different, as the Duchess stepped out in a deep emerald green double-breasted coat by Catherine Walker, who was one of Princess Diana's favourite designers, having created over 1,000 outfits for the royal.     

Layered under that was a vibrant printed midi dress by Alessandra Rich. The Crepe De Chine Rose Print Pleated Dress with Peplum features a swirling floral motif in a medley of greens, voluminous sleeves and delicate pleating on the front. The high collar popped against her glossy blow-dried curls and the rich shade of the coat, while also keeping out the cold!

Keeping firmly on theme, Kate accessorised her outfit with emerald green court shoes and a matching clutch bag, while she revisited a favourite accessory from last summer: the velvet hairband.  

Prince William, meanwhile, looked smart in a dark suit and jacket, adding a nod to his hosts with a deep green patterned tie.

First up on their trip is a visit to Áras an Uachtaráin before a wreath-laying ceremony at the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin city centre. This evening, the couple will go out on the town at a reception at the Gravity Bar in the Guinness Storehouse - here's hoping we get a snap of their pints stamped with a selfie!
