Kate Middleton Wears Green Emilia Wickstead Coat Dress on St Patrick's Day

Think St Patrick’s Day, think the Emerald Isle, so how fitting that the Duchess of Cambridge choose a gorgeous green coat dress for today’s Irish Guards' parade.

Kate Middleton attended her first solo military engagement in Aldershot sporting the traditional Irish colour with chocolate brown heels and a matching hat by Lock and Co. You’ll remember she sported another Lock and Co creation for a visit to Leicester last month. She also wore an Irish Guards brooch that the Queen Mother wore when she visited the Irish Guards.

The coat dress comes courtesy of Emilia Wickstead, the New Zealand-born designer who shows at London Fashion Week. Backstage at her Autumn Winter 2012 show in February, Emilia told Grazia that she admires Kate’s polished style and could see the Duchess wearing all of her creations. Indeed, the designer’s softly sexy silhouettes and super feminine nipped-in frocks with modest hemlines are ideal for our DoC and Emilia already dressed a handful of guests at last year’s Royal Wedding, including Kate’s cousin Lucy, Lady Kitty Spencer and Emma Parker Bowles. See, who needs the luck of the Irish when you’ve got the Kate effect on your side?

Speaking of which, the Duchess’ radiant appearance was enough to make the soliders swoon. Yes indeedy, one uniformed chap was literally bowled over at the sight of her and promptly fainted.

Kate certainly looked radiant and her queenly green ensemble was marvelous against the scarlet red uniforms. She confidently presented soldiers – and their doggy mascot – with Irish shamrocks and after being photographed with a mass of them, she enjoyed a St Paddy's Day tipple. Yep, the DoC sipped on a well-deserved glass of Harvey's Bristol Creme sherry as the officers toasted her all-round amazingness (scroll through the gallery above for a pic). Bring on the Irish merriment, we say!
