Why’s the government waisting money sending them there? Meghan’s anti-Brexit and doesn’t know when to keep her trap shut. Harry’s gone way down in the gutter that he no longer resembles the man he once was so who knows what he’s going to do or say during the visit. Didn’t they go there before and his Hollywood ignorant wife dressed in the colour of the Irish republican flag? What was accomplished during that trip? I’d dare say nothing.

I don’t think she’s established nearly enough for a potentially controversial visit.  It comes off as a curiosity look-see for her benefit not theirs.

Quote from the Express article:

"They are looking forward to learning more about Ireland's history and experiencing its rich culture, as well as meeting the people who are shaping the country's future."

People can learn Ireland's history and "rich" culture in two days?  sly

Oh, the youth ambassador angle  wopedo

How amazing it would be if no one showed up to see them, after all, they aren't in Northern Ireland.  Tongue

Considering Meghan's father's comments about Harry and Brexit, do we really think this is a good move?

Why would the government invite Harry and her to Ireland? There’s issues with the Dublin agreement and now migrants are being smuggled through Ireland and into the UK. There’s other issues regarding the border and trade that’s been a sticking point for Brexit. Using Harry’s trip, the government can send a representative along to iron out some details to move the Brexit negotiations along. IMO, the way Meghan’s been aloud to carry on and get special treatment from the press who know better how things are done to the royals seemingly going out of their way to welcome her is beyond the pale and just raises questions and suspicions that something’s been off since day one. Harry acts out of character as if he’s never had a relationship or did royal duties and that he’d need a someone like Meghan who’s described as tough feminist nonsense to guide him and protect him.  tehe  IMO, this invite from the government puts the whole thing in perspective now. Brexit negotiations are a mess as the prime minister seems to be soft and doesn’t seem to have a solid plan for the UK to exit the EU. Ireland is now a sticking point and is further complicating the matter.

^^The part where you said "migrants are being smuggled through Ireland and into the UK" relates to Meg since she is a migrant who smuggled her way into the BRF so she has experience in that, so maybe that's why she is going.  laugh I couldn't help myself.  tehe

^brilliant!!  tehe  
^^But why though? Harry’s now a 2nd rate fool because of the Meghan problem and how he’s portrayed as a needy man-child and Meghan as his protector. Why would the queen request that he go to Ireland? I think it’s the Irish government doing the invite. Brexit can’t happen without their cooperation and since the government’s on edge with Trump’s visit next month, IMO sending a government envoy with Harry makes sense to me without the press attention. Harry’s trip will be covered and not the secret negotiations until a later date. Brexit has to happen next year and Ireland is a sticking point. Harry and Meghan are entertainment fluff and not an international power couple who’ll be a mover a shaker on the world stage. They’re a side show.

^ thankyou

I don't understand why they are going either. Her diplomatic fashion sense will be interesting.

I wonder if H&M will be at Prince Louis' Christening on July 9th since they are on tour the next day, you know they can't make too many visits day after day, the poor snowflakes.

Ireland is just an excuse to go on vacation. There's plenty of ribbon cutting opportunities in Londong but Meghan needs to merch her newfound lov$ for Givenchy in Ireland too. Why only UK to enjoy her fashion forward poop emoji, toilet paper and sushi set hats.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry BAN mention of Brexit on Ireland visit
The diktat was issued when Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the Emerald Isle earlier this month and will be extended for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, the Sunday Express can reveal.
Harry and Meghan are expected to meet Taoiseach Leo Varadkar when the royal newlyweds visit Dublin on July 10 and 11th.
It comes after Meghan’s father Thomas Markle revealed in a TV interview that Harry was comfortable with Britain’s 2016 decision to leave the EU.
"I think he was open to the experiment," Markle said.
Ahead of Charles and Camilla’s arrival in Cork, ministers were warned that it would not be appropriate to make "explicit references" to Brexit during the visit.
Ministers were also told the visit was a mix of political, civic and cultural engagements, but Brexit was strictly off the agenda.
Harry and Meghan are expected to meet a number of senior Irish politicians during their whistlestop tour.
The warning comes at a time of heightened tension in the UK over the Northern ireland border issue, ahead of a crunch EU summit on Thursday.
"Given the precarious nature of the Brexit issue in the UK, we need to be conscious not to exacerbate the problem," one minister told the Irish Independent. 
Further details are due to be announced in the coming week buts sources say the Taoiseach is expected to meet the couple at some stage during their short stay.
