We are in STITCHES
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry embarked on their first international tour as a married couple this week.
During their trip to Ireland, the Duke and Duchess publicly cooed over a toddler, attended a garden party at the British Embassy together, and Meghan even showcased a secret talent of hers.
Prince Harry gave a speech during the garden party, telling how pleased he and Meghan were to be in the country.
‘We’re so pleased to be here, for our first official international visit together as a married couple, and we hope it will be the first of many,’ he said in an address to guests.
However, there was one moment that we’re sure was the highlight of the evening for guests – the joke at the expense of his dear old dad, Prince Charles.
Harry revealed that, During the Prince of Wales’ visit to Ireland earlier this year the Irish prime minister (who was also present at the garden party) ‘showed my father around his home city of Cork just a couple of weeks ago.’
It was then that he took the opportunity to tease his poor father (though we’re sure you’ll agree, it was pretty funny).
‘So we are very grateful for you for joining us here this evening as well,’ the prince said in the PM’s direction. ‘And also very nice to know he didn’t bore you senseless.’
From what we know of Prince Charles and his sense of humour, though, he would have taken this on the chin – and probably quipped something equally funny back.
Ah, to be a fly on the wall when Prince Harry next sees his dad…
