Kate Middleton will reportedly join her husband, Prince William, at the annual St. Patrick's Day Military Parade just outside London. Originally, only the Duke of Cambridge was confirmed to attend, however Clarence House reveals today (Monday) the duchess will also be on hand. "The Duke of Cambridge, Colonel-in-Chief, and The Duchess of Cambridge will visit the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade at Mons Barracks, Aldershot," their official website reveals.
Kate Middleton will present the traditional sprigs of shamrocks to the Officers and Guardsmen of the Regiment. The couple will also watch as 200 soldiers march in the annual St. Patrick's Day Military Parade in full military dress.
In 2012, the Duchess of Cambridge attended the event solo, as Prince William was still training in the Falkland Islands. During that parade a soldier fainted as HRH participated by presenting the shamrock sprigs.
The March 17 outing, will mark at least the second of the month for the pregnant Duchess. She'll also tour the fishing and port town of Grimsby on March 5. Kate Middleton's return to royal duty is picking up as she continues to feel better. Sources say she plans to work up until her July due date.
