The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be the guests of honour at the Irish Guards' St Patrick's Day Parade. William will attend as colonel of the regiment and Kate will present traditional sprigs of shamrock to officers and guardsmen at their base in Aldershot, Hampshire.
The royal couple will watch as the Band of the Irish Guards marches on to the parade square at Mons Barracks followed by 300 soldiers. They will be joined by Domhnall, the regiment's Irish wolfhound mascot, who will receive his own sprig of shamrock from the Duchess.
