Kate Middleton brought a chic take to wearing green for Saint Patrick’s Day while celebrating the holiday in the UK. The royal arrived at the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade at Mons Barracks, Aldershot to visit the 1st Battalion Irish Guards with Prince William.

The Duchess of Cambridge arrived today in a monochrome outfit, featuring a forest green wool jacket. The midi-length piece featured a flared hemline mimicking a  skirt, and was sharply cinched with an attached buckled belt. The piece was complete with military shoulder accents, a fully buttoned exterior and sharp collar. Middleton accessorized with a matching velvet hat, gold clover brooch and delicate earrings.
