The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are having such a good time on St. Patrick's Day, they're celebrating in two countries.

The royal couple started their official schedule with a visit to the 1st Battalion Irish Guards barracks in West London, where both sipped pints of Guinness.

The Duchess sported a shamrock, Ireland's national symbol, on her coat.

She spoke with off-duty guards.

Later in the day, the royals flew on a private plane to Paris, where they met with French President François Hollande. They are spending two days in Paris on the official visit and will reportedly attend a black-tie dinner tonight at the British Embassy.

While she kept her green shoes on, too, the shamrock didn't seem to make the trip across the English Channel.
