They'll probably just ask either the Duke of Abercorn or Sir Sebastian Roberts to do it. They were the colonels before William. That makes more sense than to ask a random member of the BRF that has no connection to their unit.

Considering that William is the first royal colonel and the monarch is the colonel in chief of all household regiments, there have been plenty of British royals that passed out shamrocks over the years with no direct connection to the Irish Guards.

Maybe British royal, unless you know something about Grand Duke Jean that the rest of us don't know.

That's why I said British royals passing out Shamrocks without connections. I don't think they are going to fly Grand Duke Jean over for St Patrick's Day. So if a royal does it, it's going to be a British one and everyone except the Queen (ruling the Cambridges out of running) doesn't have a tie to the Irish Guards. Just like many previous Shamrock passing outers.

As the Princess Royal said in an interview "You can't attend everything"
And the Princess Royal is absolutely correct! The Foreign Office had to coordinate the schedule with their French counterparts' calendar and these are the dates that they found mutually agreeable.

William and Kate are to attend the Six Nations Rugby match between Wales and France at the end of their short tour to Paris next week.

The royal couple are embarking on a two day visit across the English Channel as the government deploys them as diplomatic “soft power” at about the same time as Theresa May triggers the UK’s divorce from the EU.

Kensington Palace has issued more details of the Duke and Duchess’ trip.

The Cambridges also plan to meet those involved in the terrorist attacks at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris as well as the lorry attack in Nice on Bastille Day last year.

They will also be the guests of honour at a reception at the British Embassy called “les Voisins” (“cousins” in English) which celebrates the cultural ties between the UK and France.

You'll have to wait for Friday March 17 when they hand them out to the Irish Guards. (-Pretend that this is a shamrock.)

Forgive me, this could be me but I am utterly lost by the above post?

That was back when the Paris trip was announced and people were speculating about the Cambridges missing the Irish Guards shamrock giving. All prior to them announcing that they are doing both today.

Kate is wearing the same green coat.

M.Hollande's suit looks SO cheap and badly fitted.. William's dull Navy contrives to look wonderful by comparison..
