Kate Middleton finally updates her wardrobe for Saint Patrick's Day parade

The Duchess of Cambridge finally invested in a new green coat as she stepped out for the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade this morning.



For the last two years, Kate Middleton has worn the same green Emilia Wickstead coat to this event.

This year she decided to change things up, opting for an emerald green Hobbs wool coat for the Irish festival, that is admittedly rather similar to last year’s outfit.

Kate kept her favourite green leather belt from 2012 to wear with her new coat, having omitted it last year due to her blossoming baby bump.

Possibly due to the unseasonable warmth, the Duchess swapped the black opaque tights for a nude look to go with her matching green Gina Foster hat and court shoes.




Her brunette locks were their usual perfectly quaffed selves, worn in Kate’s signature soft wave style. 

As always, the 32-year-old adorned her green ensemble with a festive sprig of shamrocks to celebrate the patron saint of Ireland’s feast day.

Prince William was also in attendance at the parade in Aldershot, Hampshire dressed in his impressive military uniform. 

There was no sign of Prince George, as the pair looked well rested after their romantic getaway to the Maldives last week. 



As part of their royal duties, every year the Duke and Duchess attend the celebration to hand out shamrocks to the Irish Guards.

Today, Kate is expected to hand out 300 of the Irish flowers compared to just 40 last year.
