Duchess of Cambridge presents shamrocks to Irish Guard soldiers to mark St Patrick's Day | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were guests of honour at the annual Irish Guards' St Patrick's Day parade in Aldershot today.

Prince William, 32, was there as Colonel of the regiment and Kate, 33, wearing a gold shamrock brooch given to the Queen Mother by the Irish Guards, presented the traditional sprigs of shamrocks to officers, guardsmen, and the regimental mascot, Domhnall, a three-year-old Irish wolfhound.

In a Catherine Walker coat and Lock & Co hat, the Duchess was following a century-old tradition inaugurated in 1901 by Edward VII's wife, Queen Alexandra, of a senior female member of the Royal Family presenting the shamrock.

For many years the Queen Mother carried out the duty.
Princess on parade! Pregnant Duchess of Cambridge presents the Irish Guards with their traditional St. Patrick's Day shamrocks | Daily Mail Online

After spending last week meeting artists in Margate and the cast of Downton Abbey in London, the Duchess of Cambridge was back on military duty today as she joined Prince William for the traditional St. Patrick's Day visit to the Irish Guards.

Kate, 33, is eight months pregnant but showed no signs of fatigue as she arrived looking every inch the yummy mummy in a brown coat by Catherine Walker, a hat by the Duchess of Cornwall's favourite milliner, Lock & Co and brown suede shoes by Emmy London.

Once inside the Guards' Mons Barracks in the Hampshire town of Aldershot, the Duchess, who was also wearing a gold Irish Guards Brooch that once belonged to the Queen Mother, sat smiling as she watched 200 men from the battalion put through their paces on the Parade Square.

The Duchess of Cambridge gives out shamrocks to soldiers from the Irish Guards on St Patrick's Day, but has problems with their mascot dog.

Siegfried would complain that there are too many pets and then go out and adopt one himself.

And he would also add that dogs were not to be spoilt either, all while engaging the hound in some sort of interaction. Those scenes in the show never failed to make me laugh.

As to the engagement itself, I'm always happy to see this couple among the people. They have so much charisma.

Roseroyal-Watching "All Creatures Great and Small" was the only time my parents permitted us to watch television during dinner on Sunday evenings. We loved those episodes.
