Duchess of Cambridge gets heel stuck in a drain

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge braved showers to attend a St Patrick's Day parade at a military barracks today.

Wearing the same green Emilia Wickstead dress coat she wore to the event last year, Kate smiled broadly as she greeted soldiers from the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at Mons Barracks in Aldershot, Hampshire.

However, at one point, Kate's foot became stuck in a drain and she had to spend a few moments freeing her heel.
