The event led with a minute's silence to pay respects to the New Zealand terror attack victims.

Kate Middleton showed her love for the Irish in a head-to-toe emerald green ensemble during her annual visit to the Irish Guards in London.

The Duchess of Cambridge dressed for the occasion in a deep green Alexander McQueen coat, velvet Gianvito Rossi heels and a hat from Lock and Co. 

The Daily Mail also notes that Kate is also wearing a "special Cartier shamrock brooch, which is loaned to royal members for engagements with the Guards." 

Every year since her 2011 wedding to Prince William – who is Colonel of the Irish Guards – the Duchess has adopted a different shade of green to meet the 1st Battalion at their base in Hounslow, west London.

As is tradition, Kate presented a basket of shamrocks to officers and warrant officers. Three cheers were then raised to the royal duo before a march past where William took the salute.

Leading the procession was Irish wolfhound and mascot Domnhall, whom Kate petted and stroked several times before finally presenting him with a shamrock.
