The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent this morning at Household Cavalry Barrackss to present the 1st Battalion Irish Guardsmen with shamrocks during the annual Irish Guards St Patrick’s Day Parade. Kate repeated her dark green percher saucer hat trimmed with large, pleated flower on the back left side of the design.
The first time we saw this hat, it was ill matched to its accompanying green coat but such was not an issue today. It looks like Kate’s new Catherine Walker coat was custom matched to this hat (both pieces have the same the same blue undertone) as was the cut, as the two pieces now are a perfect compliment. The hat is fairly simple but stands on its own here, uplifted by the brass buttons on Kate’s coat and those wonderful ly luxurious velvet cuffs and collar.
