LONDON — Hundreds of well-wishers turned out to catch a glimpse of Prince Harry and his wife, the former actress Meghan Markle, as they made their first overseas walkabout in Dublin Wednesday.

Students and tourists flocked to the Irish capital's Trinity College, screaming and shouting to greet the royal couple, who were on their first official trip abroad as a married couple.

Soccer was a hot topic, with England playing Croatia later Wednesday in the semi-final World Cup match. Harry asked the crowd: "Are you all cheering for England?" and chatted away with university students about soccer.

Earlier, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as they are formally known, met with Irish President Michael D. Higgins at his official residence.

When asked by a reporter if "football was coming home" — a reference to England's chances of winning the World Cup — Harry triggered laughter when he answered with a grin: "Most definitely."

The royal couple also visited the headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association, the scene of the Bloody Sunday massacre committed by British troops against civilians in 1920.

Harry said Tuesday that he hoped to take the opportunity to reflect on the "difficult passages" in the history between Britain and Ireland.
