There to hand out sprigs of shamrock to members of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, Duchess Kate wore a belted green coat, accessorized with a chic fascinator and emerald-colored shoes. The “persephone” coat in pine green by British retailer Hobbs is on sale for £195 (roughly $324), and touted for its “understated elegance.” If you want it, better get on it: We give it just a few hours before it’s sold out.

In years past, Kate has stuck to the Irish hue for the holiday, and even recycled her ladylike Emilia Wickstead coat in 2013. (In 2012, she cinched it with a belt and went stockings-free). 

Tradition! Duchess Kate wears green for St. Patrick's Day festivities in 2012, 2013 and 2014.Today

She also wore a royal family heirloom — a Cartier gold shamrock brooch — beside sprigs of the actual plant.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wears everything from fancy hats to casual tank tops. See how Prince William's wife can easily go from a high society affair to shopping on the streets of London.
