Dressing appropriately on-theme for the holiday, the Duchess of Cambridge wore head-to-toe emerald while visiting the Irish Guards in Aldershot alongside her husband Prince William. On Thursday morning, Kate debuted a new dark green coat by the aptly-named fashion designer Laura Green during her official appearance. The tailored jacket featured a bold collar and a row of black buttons, as well as a gold shamrock brooch and fresh sprigs of the plant affixed to the front. Meanwhile, her suede, pointed-toe pumps, pillbox hat, and emerald and diamond drop earrings expertly matched her coat. Beauty-wise, the duchess wore minimal makeup, and rather than her signature bouncy blow-dry, she pulled her brunette hair up into a low-slung chignon. There's a Special Meaning Behind All of Kate Middleton's Photography This is the first St. Patrick's Day celebration that the Cambridges have attended since the start of the pandemic. During the event, the couple handed out shamrocks and posed for photographs alongside the soldiers, before heading to the Junior Ranks dining hall to mingle with the guardsmen and their families. Ahead of the parade, Kate and Will wished royal fans everywhere a happy St. Patrick's Day on Twitter. "Happy #StPatricksDay wherever in the world you're celebrating today," they wrote.
