Kate & Wills Join the Queen at a Luncheon to Celebrate Diamond Jubilee

Kate and William joined dozens of royals from around the globe for a special lunch celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a wool bespoke, blush-pink Emilia Wickstead coat dress (£1,200) with pleated skirt. The dress is a combination of two dresses from the Autumn Winter 2012 Collection. It has long sleeves and a modest knee-length hemline

Kate topped off her look with Prada rose-hued satin pumps (seem previously at the wedding of  Peter Philips and Autumn Kelley in May 2008), her pink Prada satin logo box-clutch with goldtone hardware ($556.and seen at the ARK gala), a brooch, sparkly earrings and her signature loose tumbling curls.

Kate Presents Shamrocks to Irish Guards in Aldershot

Today was Kate’s first solo military engagement. She presented shamrocks to soldiers to mark St Patrick’s Day.

The Duchess watched the ceremonial military parade before handing out lucky three-leafed clovers to 40 officers and NCOs (non-commissoned officers) at Mons Barracks in Aldershot. Even their Irish Wolfhound mascot got one.

During the event, 450 soldiers marched into the square at the barracks wearing their scarlet tunics and bearskin busbies. They were followed by the band of the Irish Guards, along with Conmael, the Irish Wolfhound regimental mascot.

Kate spent time speaking to members of the Regiment Association and the Mini Micks cadets on the parade ground before being photographed with 100 Sergeants and then with 40 Officers.

Kate chose to wear a dark green Emilia Wickstead coat dress (Fall/Winter 2011 Collection). She accessorized her look with chocolate brown bespoke suede heels by Emmy and matching’Betty Boop’ chocolate brown pillbox hat with bow by Lock and Co (£245).

She topped off her look with a green belt (we suspect it could possibly also be by Emilia Wickstead), a frothy shamrock and her favorite amethyst and diamond earrings by Kiki McDonough.

As for that gold cartier shamrock brooch, it’s actually owned by the Guards, and loaned out by them, having previously been worn by the Queen Mother and Princess Anne.
