It's The Crown/Outlander crossover of our dreams.
Add "mingling with celebs" on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's very long list of things they did while in Ireland on their first official trip as a married couple.
Worlds collided earlier this week when Prince Harry met Outlander star and Dublin native Caitriona Balfe at a garden party at the British Embassy. (Excuse us while we plot an Outlander/The Crown crossover in our heads.) Balfe looked very chic in her burnt orange dress and blunt bob for the occasion. Also pictured are Balfe's fellow Irish actors, Vikings star Moe Dunford and Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, The Killing of the Sacred Deer).

Sadly, there was no sign of Balfe's co-star Sam Heughan. No word on if Meghan—who wore a LBD Emilia Wickstead dress to the fête—met the star as well.
