Are you having major Prince William and Kate Middleton withdrawal? Well (good news!), the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are preparing to embark on a three-day outing.

Kensington Palace just released new details about the couple’s royal tour of Ireland. The visit will kick off on Tuesday, March 3, and conclude on Thursday, March 5, and comes at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

During the trip, Prince William and Middleton will travel to Dublin, County Meath, County Kildare and Galway. They will not only meet with political leaders—like Michael D. Higgins (the president of Ireland)—but they’ll also learn more about the country’s rich culture, community and scenery.

“During the three-day tour, the Duke and Duchess will learn about local organizations working to support and empower young people and projects which provide opportunities to help them develop important life skills,” the statement reads. “Their Royal Highnesses will also hear more about Ireland’s conservation initiatives and efforts to protect its environment, with a particular focus on sustainable farming and marine conservation.”

The royal tour comes nine years after Queen Elizabeth made a historic visit to Ireland, which marked the first-ever visit by a reigning British monarch. Since then, the royal family has made it a priority to maintain a strong relationship with Ireland.

As long as we have more Kate Middleton fashion in our future, you won’t hear us complaining.
