Prince Harry And Meghan Markle May Return To Ireland Soon After This Discovery

It has been exactly a week since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle touched down in Dublin to a massive reception.

It was a quick, 24-hour sort of job for the Prince and his wife but in that short space of time, they got a good bit done to be fair to them.

They jetted back to England shortly after 4pm so that Harry could be back in time to see the England team fall short in the semi-finals against Croatia.

However, it seems like the couple could be returning to Ireland pretty soon after this discovery.

And what's better is they won't need to find a place to stay.

The Belfast Telegraph is reporting that Meghan has some relatives in Northern Ireland following a discovery at the weekend.

The royal has an ancestral link to Mary McCue who was born in the 1830s and it is believed that there is people in Belfast who are descendants of Mary.

It turns out that Meghan's great, great, great grandmother was Mary McCue/McHugh (not to be confused with when Busted met someone's great, great, great granddaughter who was pretty fine in the Year 3000).

She was a Belfast woman who married an English soldier by the name of Thomas Bird in Dublin.

Thomas died and Mary remarried before relocating to the United States where she stayed until she died in 1885.

Sure, they'll have to come home soon enough again to see their Irish relations. It's the least they could do considering they missed out on the massive wedding.
