After a family rift, there’s nothing like packing up and getting away from it all and that’s what Prince William and Kate Middleton are planning to do, according to reports.

The royal pair have been busy trying to keep a lid on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wantaway situation and it seems like they’re picking Ireland as their destination in which take a bit of a break.

The Irish Sun reports that plans are in place for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to head over here in March for ‘a series of engagements over two days which will most likely take in Cork and Dublin.’

With Paddy’s Day celebrations set to be in full swing at that point, the future king and queen are sure to have plenty of craic on their travels but, as mentioned above, royal duties will probably restrict their festivities a little bit.

Ireland hasn’t been short on royal visits in recent times with Charles and Camilla making regular trips across the Irish Sea. Harry and Meghan were here in 2018 just after they got married and even got to marvel at the skills of Joe Canning at Croke Park.

As for William and Kate, they were last on the island when they visited Belfast last year. There’s sure to be a massive security presence if the Cambridges do come over and exact details of the trip are sure to remain secret until they’re set in stone.

As long as it doesn’t clash with any of Ireland’s Six Nations matches, we don’t mind what they get up to, says you.
