Kate Middleton attends St Patrick's Day Parade as Colonel of the regiment.

This is her first time attending, taking over the role from Prince William.

William expressed sadness in giving up the role, but praised Kate as a committed and loyal Colonel.

Kate wore a custom Catherine Walker coat and matching hat to the event.

She presented sprigs of shamrock to officers, guardsmen, and the Irish wolfhound regimental mascot.

The parade ended with a royal salute and march-past, with Kate taking the salute as the new Colonel.

The couple met with the Irish Guards Association, made up of past members of the Irish Guards.

William drank a pint of Guinness and Kate nursed a half pint at the end of the visit.

Overall, Kate's first St Patrick's Day Parade as Colonel was a success, showcasing her commitment to the regiment.
