The Queen has begun her state visit to Ireland. What are your views?

Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, Queen Elizabeth II will make a four-day tour of the republic.

She will be the first British monarch to make a state visit to Ireland since it became a republic. The last monarch to make a state visit was King George V in 1911.

When the visit was officially announced last month, it was welcomed by the majority of political leaders but protests are expected on the streets of Dublin.
