Éire Ducal Visit

It has been brought to my notice that there was an article in yesterday's Irish Times newspaper about a visit to Kilkenny, Ireland, by the erstwhile Lord Stewart of Her Majesty's Household, His Grace the Duke of Abercorn KG.

During lunch at Kilkenny Castle, the Duke was shown photographs of the last royal visit – by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra in 1904.

His Grace was joined by HM Ambassador to the Republic of Ireland, Julian Beresford King CMG; and the Mayor of Kilkenny.

It is expected that The Queen will pay a visit to the Irish Republic in 2011.
