Duchess Kate and Prince William are living it up in Ireland! While the royal couple have been known to sip Guinness beer while toasting the Irish guards during St. Patrick's Day celebrations, they were able to enjoy the drink in its homeland during their recent visit to Dublin!
After touching down in Ireland on Tuesday, Kate and William attended a reception the same evening that was held at the Guinness Storehouse. Kate paid tribute to the signature colour of her host country with her outfit choice, opting for a shimmery green dress. She also wore velvet heels and carried a clutch to accessorize!
William and Kate indulge in beer and culture at reception
Prince William and Duchess Kate had the opportunity to engage in conversation with Irish artists, athletes, businesspeople, and charity workers at the reception. Hosted by British ambassador Robin Barnett, the Guinness Storehouse's Gravity bar served as the venue for the big event. The Storehouse is Ireland's top tourist attraction, telling the story of the famed Guinness since it opened 20 years ago.
Kate and William each enjoyed sipping Guinness, and William talked about how they were following in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth. The Queen herself had popped into the pub during a royal tour of Ireland in 2011, where she was shown how to "pour the perfect pint," in William's words.
"Ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you it is not often that I find myself following the Queen to a pub!" William exclaimed. "But I am looking forward to testing for myself the theory that Guinness tastes even better in Ireland than overseas!"
