Prince and princess of the people!

Duchess Kate accompanied Prince William during his first event as the Colonel-in-Chief of the Irish Guards on Saturday.

The newlywed royals, both 29, shook hands and talked with soldiers in Victoria Barracks during a medal parade in Windsor.

While William wore his military uniform, Kate was a knockout in her own military inspired frock. Paired with a navy fascinator, the Duchess rocked a navy dress with gold buttons. She even wore a gold shamrock pin in honor of the Irish Guard.

Kate was all smiles as a young girl in a pink dress sweetly presented her with flowers. 

In a matter of days, the Duke and Duchess will begin their North American tour, which includes walking the red carpet with celebrities in Los Angeles.
