The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge watched 350 soldiers march onto the Mons Square at Cavalry Barracks led by their mascot, the Irish Wolfhound Domhnall, before the Duchess presented shamrocks to Officers and Warrant Officers, who in turn issued it along the ranks. Later, they met members of the Regiment before sitting for official Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess photographs, and afterwards met soldiers and their families. Finally, the Duke and Duchess visited the junior ranks dining hall where the Senior Guardsman in the battalion proposed a toast to Their Royal Highnesses, and thanked the Duchess for presenting the gift of shamrock.

One thought on “Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at St Patrick’s Day Parade 2022

  1. I find that the Irish Guards black frock coat uniform is one of the most excellent uniforms ever! Prince William looks absolutely smashing in it! I have no idea if the Duchess is wearing her usual coat, but even if she isn’t, I can tell she’s making a special effort to sort of have a “uniform” for the event. Her husband has his uniform and it looks like she has hers, which is perfect for the occasion! It’s heartening to see the usual events and ceremonies take place in person once again. “May your troubles be less and your blessings be more, and nothing but happiness come through your door!” Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
