Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrate St Patrick's Day with Irish Guards

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have celebrated St Patrick's Day at a special parade in Aldershot.

The shamrock ceremony took place at the British Army's Mons Barracks, with Prince William and Kate presenting Seamrὸg, traditional sprigs of shamrock, to the Irish Guards.

Last year, Prince William, Colonel of the Irish Guards, praised the "grit and determination" they had shown over the previous 12 months – which included work at mobile COVID-19 testing units.
