The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the Irish Guards St. Patrick's Day Parade on Thursday at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, England.
The Duchess presented the shamrock to Officers and Warrant Officers, alongside their mascot Seamus, the Irish wolfhound.
The couple then met members of the regiment - of which Prince William is Colonel - and posed for official photos.
Kate was on point today in a new dark emerald green military wool coat by Laura Green.
It is the 'Emilia' style (£3,200) featuring a midi length, single breasted front with navy leather buttons, structured dagger collar, epaulettes, and a matching wool buckle belt. With thanks to @innominate_93 for the ID.
This is the first occasion we have seen the Duchess wear a piece by the London based fashion designer whose collections epitomise contemporary couture with subtle notes of femininity. Below is a small sample of Laura Green designs I could also see Kate add to her closet.
Kate teamed the coat with a new green chapeau - the Lock & Co 'Mayfair' pillbox hat (£445).
The headpiece (shown below in black) is a reinvention of the classic pillbox hat featuring a knotted bow on the side. With thanks to @innominate_93 for the ID.
The Duchess wore her Emerald & Diamond Oval Earrings, and completed her St Patrick's Day look with the gold three-leaf shamrock brooch, pinned just above her sprig of shamrock. The piece belongs to the Irish Guards who loan it to the Duchess for the occasion.
And finally, a closer look at Kate's elegant up-do.
Green has been the colour of choice for Kate for this traditional event, except for when The Duchess surprised us in 2015 by wearing a chestnut brown Catherine Walker ensemble.
Note: The Duchess of Cambridge skipped the 2016 parade, and the 2020 & 2021 parades were canceled due to the pandemic.
