Earlier this week, she wore a redesigned version of her floral BAFTAs gown by the British label for the Portrait Gala.

Kate teamed today's coat with a matching floral hat, her Gianvito Rossi black pumps and her Kiki McDonough tourmaline and green amethyst drop earrings.

The gold Cartier shamrock brooch was pinned to her left shoulder. The Queen Mother and Princess Anne have both worn this piece of jewellery in the past and it actually belongs to the Irish Guards, who loan it out to female members of the Royal Family.

Kate handed out shamrock to 1st Battalion the Irish Guards, including their mascot Irish Wolfhound Domhnall. William, who is Colonel of the Irish Guards, took the salute after the march past.

The duchess has attended the parade every year since 2012, except in 2016 when she decided to spend time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte before jetting off on the royal tour of India and Bhutan.

Last year she was eight months pregnant with Prince Louis and it was one of her last engagements before she went off on maternity leave.

This week Kate will accompany the Queen to open Bush House at King's College London on Tuesday and she will then carry out a solo visit to the Foundling Museum, which tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, Britain's first home for children at risk of abandonment.
