WINDSOR, ENGLAND - APRIL 08:  Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman attend a State Banquet in honour of the President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins on April 8, 2014 in Windsor, England. Guests and dignitaries including Irish prime minister, Enda Kenny and Northern Ireland's deputy first minister Martin McGuinness attending the banquet at the end of the first day of a state visit by Ireland's Michael D. Higgins. Ireland's Michael D. Higgins is making the first state visit by a president of the republic since it gained independence from neighbouring Britain. The visit comes three years after Queen Elizabeth II made a groundbreaking trip to the republic, which helped to heal deep-rooted unease and put British-Irish relations on a new footing. Higgins' return visit will be seen as an official sign of further progress following the hard-won peace in Northern Ireland, which remains part of the United Kingdom.

President Michael D. Higgins is currently in London in the first official visit by an Irish head of state.

And rugby legend Brian and his actress wife Amy looked every inch the glamorous couple at a white tie State Banquet event in honour of the President.

Amy turned heads in a €295 sage-green lace dress with a cream satin slip which she bought from the Irish website Folkster.com, just days after winning in the style stakes at the IFTAs in Helen Cody.

And she was clearly excited about the event as she excitedly tweeted a loved-up photo of her and her other half, saying: 'Date Night'.

BOD has a long standing relationship with the royal family as Prince William, who is in New Zealand with his wife Kate Middleton and son prince George, is a vocal fan of the Irish star.

He  even attended his VIP testimonial dinner in London last year.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Martin McGuinness and Eamon Gilmore were among the politicians in attendance at the historic event.

Mr Higgins' visit is intended as a reciprocation to Queen Elizabeth's visit here three years ago, in which BOD and Amy also attended a State dinner at Dublin Castle.
