Raise a pint—just don’t give one to Kate!
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, pregnant Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped out to visit the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, who were gathered together to walk in the annual parade hosted in Aldershot, England on Tuesday, March 17.
Opting to forgo the traditional green, the Duchess of Cambridge, 33, bundled her baby bump in a bespoke Catherine Walker coat, which she teamed with a chocolate Lock & Co. hat, brown gloves, and suede Emmy London heels.
For a touch of holiday sparkle, Middleton, who modeled her second updo in under a week, also added the “Citrine Drop” earrings by Kiki McDonough and a golden, shamrock-shaped brooch, once gifted to the Queen Mother by the Irish Guard.
Meanwhile, William, 32, as Colonel of the Regiment, looked spiffy in his full uniform, which was black and red, and embellished with military regalia.
As Middleton has done since her 2011 wedding to the prince, Prince George‘s mom presented a bouquet of shamrocks to the Officers and Guardsmen of the Regiment, a tradition that dates back to Queen Alexandra, who first made the presentation in 1901. See more pics of Kate’s growing baby bump.
After that, the Duke and Duchess met with members of the regiment, who toasted the royal couple for attending and thanked Her Royal Highness for presenting the gift.
The parade counted as one of the Duchess’ last appearances before baby. Though, she does have a few more scheduled, including a visit to a children’s center on Wednesday, March 18.
