The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the 1st Battalion Irish Guards for their St Patrick’s Day Parade today at Mons Barracks, Aldershot. The couple continued the tradition of presenting Shamrock to members of the regiment started by Queen Alexandra in 1901.
The Duchess wore a new hat in deep teal green fur felt. The pillbox design features an indented domed crown and is trimmed with a knotted bow at the side.
The saturated colour is beautiful, showing the smooth lines of the beautiful fur felt to great effect. The shaping of the felt to appear as if gathered by the bow gives some lovely movement to the hat, emphasized by the jaunty angle it was worn today. The hat pairs beautifully with this tweed coat, combining to make an elegant ensemble for Kate.
Designer: Awon Golding for Lock and Co. bespoke version of the ‘Mayfair’ Pillbox Hat. Coat by Laura Green London.
Previously Worn: This hat is new
Prince William wore the full dress uniform of his rank of Colonel of the Irish Guards, complete with cap, smartly trimmed with a fresh sprig of shamrock.
