That's what I like about them. I hate having to wear hose the few times I year I have to put them on, and I'd love to have a pair that makes it appear that I'm not wearing any at all.

I honestly thought she wasn't wearing any, but given the time of year and the event I didn't think that to be.

Oh, I'm really looking forward to following this engagement. I hope she wears something green . It's a lovely gesture too, since she'll be visiting the Irish Guards (or at least I think that's the regiment she'll be visiting).

This is also from Majesty, thanks to twitter.

Quote:
Some 450 soldiers will march onto the parade square in full ceremonial uniform of scarlet tunics and bearskins. The Guards will be accompanied by the regimental mascot, Conmeal, an Irish wolfhound, who will also receive his own sprig of shamrock from the Duchess.

The engagement includes a private meeting with senior personnel in the officers’ mess; the St Patrick’s Day parade at which the Duchess will present shamrock to 40 officers and warrant officers, who will then issue it along the ranks; HRH meeting members of the QS club, the Regimental Association and the Mini Micks cadets on the parade ground following the parade; HRH being photographed with 100 sergeants and then with 40 officers; HRH visiting 300 guardsmen having lunch in the dining room; and a private meeting with past and present serving officers and their families. The engagement will finish with a private luncheon with officers at the barracks.

That's awesome thanks in advance for the updates!

Ok last little update from me. Mark Stewart says it's a very grey wet day and hopes the Duchess wears something colourful. Mentions this was one of the Queen Mum's fave jobs of the year

Kate is handing out the shamrock in Aldershot now. She's wearing a dark green coat dress with a belt. She's wearing a brown furry hat. Hair is down.

It has begun, Kate for one is absolutly superbe. She wears a green coat (same color she wore with the Queen in Leicester last week), a so gorgeous hat (nearly the same Princess Mary wore once). I really love the whole look. Total success.

She looks as if she's enjoying herself. I need to see more of the hat before I make up my mind.

The dog is the Irish Guards mascot - an Irish wolfhound called Conmael.
