St. Patricks Day...in Brown!

Happy St. Patricks Day! I hope you and your family are having a wonderful day. With one of Kate's last engagements before she gives birth, she gave us a shocker...she wore brown instead of the traditional green! I hope she didn't get pinched ;)
The ceremony was at the 1st Battalion Irish Guards in Mons Barracks, Aldershot. William and Kate looked very rested, probably because they just spent the weekend in Bucklebury for British Mother's Day.
Kate has been conducting this ceremony since 2012, following in the footsteps of Anne, the Princess Royal and the Queen Mother. This also has a special meaning for them since William wore his Irish Guards uniform at their wedding.

Kate, of course, adorned Irish wolf Domhnall with a shamrock sprig.

Kate opted for a brown, bespoke Catherine Walker coat today. I think everyone is a bit surprised that she didn't wear green to this event, but it worked quite well on her.
She wore her beloved Lock & Co. topper that she has worn to many engagements, as well as the gold shamrock brooch that was previously owned by the Queen Mother, and originally made by Cartier.
She looked quite lovely today. She has her final engagement tomorrow! I will be traveling again tomorrow, so I promise if there is no post tomorrow there will be one the following day. Happy St. Patricks Day!
