Just barely two months after their May wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle jetted off to Dublin, Ireland, for their first international trip as a married couple. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex met with many locals and toured some of the capital's best places, such as Croke Park and Trinity College. The two even got to meet with President Michael Higgins at his personal residence. Yes, it was two days jam-packed with royal engagements, but that just means that we were blessed with 48 hours of duke and duchess fun. Meghan had four outfit changes, the couple exchanged several cute glances, and there was PDA to spare. What else could a royal fan ask for? 

And let's not forget the moments that just made us giggle. With any royal trip, there's bound to be plenty to enjoy, but it's surprising that Meghan and Harry were able to pack so much in for such a short trip.  Not that we're complaining!

We are so grateful for all of the fun and adorable moments the duke and duchess gave us over the last two days, and it's made us so excited for the two to go on their first official royal tour together this fall. We can barely contain ourselves at the though of all of Meghan's sure-to-be fabulous looks and Prince Harry's swoon-worthy smile!

So, in case you weren't paying attention -- or just want to relive the trip over and over again -- here is the comprehensive list of all of the best moments from Meghan and Harry's Ireland trip. They blessed us with chic outfits, sweet cuddle time, and big fluffy dogs, and we've rounded it all up to bask in the glory of their young love. You're welcome. 

  • READY FOR TAKEOFF

    1

    Meghan started their journey to Ireland in a lovely green (a nod to Ireland, perhaps?) skirt and top ensemble designed by ... you guessed it ... Givenchy. 

  • THE PDA

    2

    The Queen wasn't present, so Meghan and Harry weren't shy about holding hands and subtly touching each other. Finally

  • A STUDY IN GRAY

    3

    For her second outfit, Meghan opted for an elegant gray dress in which she met the president of Ireland. An appropriate choice, we think. 

  • THE PANTSUIT

    4

    For her and Harry's visit to Croke Park in Dublin, Meghan stepped out in a full-on pantsuit. Ladies and gentlemen, this is about as sleek as it gets. 

  • THIS KID THAT KEPT TOUCHING MEGHAN'S HAIR

    5

    The chid's just doing what we all wish we could do. It sure does look shiny, doesn't it?!

  • MEETING SOME PUPS

    6

    When the duke and duchess met the president of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and his wife, Sabina Coyne, they were also greeted by some adorable Bernese Mountain Dogs. We already know that Meghan is a dog lover, so it's not surprising that she really took to these no-so-little pups. 

  • THE WATER BOTTLES

    7

    People freaked when they saw this photo with 14 water bottles sitting on the table. Seems like a little much, right? Well, when the royals are in town, you pull out all the stops. 

  • THE CLASSIC LBD

    8

    And for one of her last looks for their Irish journey, Meghan rocked a little black dress designed by Emilia Wickstead. The duke and duchess attended a summer garden party at the British ambassador's residence in Dublin, and of course, they looked like a picture perfect couple. Didn't expect anything less!

  • HARRY'S RESPONSE TO HAVING KIDS

    9

    Prince Harry cheekily let it slip that he thinks five kids is too many. And honestly, we can't really blame him. The duke and duchess have enough on their plates as it is, so we doubt that they'll have that many children -- but according to the two themselves, we can expect an expanding family soon. 

  • MEGHAN'S CALLIGRAPHY

    10

    We wish we signed our names that beautifully. Is that a new royal talent, or has Meghan always been able to do that??

  • MEGHAN LEAVING THE PLASTIC ON HER PURSE

    11

    If you look closely, you can see the plastic wrapping still on the bottom of her handbag. It was a busy day for the duchess, so we're going to let this one slide. 

  • THEY MET WITH A LOT OF KIDS

    12

    This is just giving us hope for the day when Meghan and Harry start their own family. No pressure ... but some pressure. 

  • PRINCE HARRY MADE A SHOUTOUT TO MEGHAN DURING HIS SPEECH

    13

    During the garden party at the British ambassador's home, Prince Harry had this to say about his new wife: "We’re so pleased to be here, for our first official international visit together as a married couple, and we hope it will be the first of many."

    We hope so too, Harry!

  • THIS LOOK BETWEEN HARRY AND MEGHAN

    We live for these moments. It's so easy to see that they make each other happy. 

  • AAAAND ... SOME MORE PDA

    15

    Yay! We love it -- keep it coming, Sussexes.
