I was expecting the announcement of this engagement for a while. I was sure they would be attending it.

It'll be nice to see them in an official engagement again.

Nice to see them in a engagement together! But I'm more happy that Catherine keeps the tradition of giving shamrocks to the Irish Guards on St. Patrick's Day.

I read that this would be a possible event for the couple and I am glad to hear now that its has been confirmed. It will be nice to see the couple again at an official event. Kate looked great last year!

This article is saying that William will also receive a sprig of shamrock from Catherine.

But isn't William the regiment's Colonel? Shouldn't he be doing the presenting?

"It will be the Duke's first official public engagement after completing his training last year, and he too will receive a sprig of shamrock from the Duchess."

He went for training?

IIRC it a female member of the Royal Family presenting shamrocks to the Irish Guards - beginning with Alexandra - I know QEQM did it for years and then Anne picked up after.

Irish Guards - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
from wikipedia:
Except in wartime, the presentation is traditionally made by a member of the Royal Family. This task was first performed in 1901 by HM Queen Alexandra and later by HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Since the latter's death, the presentation has been made by HRH The Princess Royal. On the regiment's 50th anniversary in 1950, King George VI made the presentation in person.

My local paper and they get things wrong! I think they mean that its his first official regimental engagement since he returned from the Falklands last year (ie he missed 17th March parade cos he was away)

That was for the RAF. The Irish Guards is an appointed position so no training involved. It's like how in the US you don't have to train to be Commander-in-Chief you just are. I think I had read that passing out the shamrocks was traditionally down by female members of the royal family, but I'm not sure.

It might just be that he is considered on of the troops as their honorary colonel and so Kate will give him one as well? If its true...maybe they will do it together.

Thanks I guess it is primarily a female british royal family member's job except for special occasions in which the monarch will take over.

I was looking through the list of honorary colonels in that same wiki page and discover that William is the first royal from BRF to hold this role. So this is really a 'first time' whereby a BRF member will be presenting to another BRF member. I wonder if William will be part of the marching
