Queen Elizabeth II's Historic Visit To Ireland - Day Three
Queen Elizabeth II and Chryss O'Reilly, Chair of the Board of The Irish National Stud, tour the Irish National Stud, during the third day of the state visit to Ireland, on May 19, 2011 in Kildare, Ireland. The Duke and Queen's visit to Ireland is the first by a monarch since 1911. An unprecedented security operation is taking place with much of the centre of Dublin turning into a car free zone.
