The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated St Patrick’s Day at a traditional Irish Guards parade.
Prince William has been colonel of the regiment since 2011 and he arrived with Kate on Sunday morning for the couple’s annual visit to the 1st Battalion at its base in Hounslow, west London.
The Duchess donned an emerald green coat from Alexander McQueen with a Lock & Co. hat and £510(around $680) Gianvito Rossi pumps, while William wore his Irish Guards Frock Coat.
She accessorized her look with a pair of special edition green amethyst and green tourmaline earrings from Kiki McDonough.
The couple was later toasted by the longest-serving Guardsman at the Guardsman’s Lunch, and the duchess was formally thanked for presenting the shamrock.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge led a minute’s silence to pay respects to the New Zealand terror attack victims during their visit to Cavalry Barracks.
They enjoyed a pint of Guinness after attending the St Patrick’s Day parade at Cavalry Barracks in Hounslow. At past parades, the Duke enjoyed himself a traditional pint of Guinness as Kate, who was heavily pregnant with Prince Louis at the time, opted for a sparkling water instead.
The couple was also reunited with their furry friend Domhnall, a seven-year-old Irish wolfhound and mascot they have met several times previously, at Cavalry Barracks today.
Around three hundred fifty soldiers marched on the Parade Square at Cavalry Barracks on Sunday morning, while their families proudly watched on wrapped up warm with blankets to protect from the cold March wind.
Drummer Murray said: ‘’We’ve had a week-long preparation as a battalion, we’ve had a couple of rehearsals, the couple of little bits that we’ve had to obviously fine tune.’’
