Prince Charles' royal visit to Ireland: In pictures

Prince Charles and Camilla are on a four-day visit to the island of Ireland.

They touched down on a chartered flight at Shannon Airport before travelling to Galway city for the first stop in a packed agenda, with two days of engagements planned on either side on the Irish border.

Charles is said to be excited by the prospect of his first official visit to the Republic of Ireland in 13 years.

The Prince will visit the seaside village of Mullaghmore, Co Sligo where his great uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten was assassinated by the IRA.
