What did Prince William and Kate Middleton do at Windsor on St David’s Day?
While Prince William put on his gray Home Service Clothing of Winter Order uniform, Kate Middleton donned her all-time favorite, Alexander McQueen, in a gorgeous red coat significantly representing the red in Wales’ flag.
Kate Middleton also joined the band, which led a harmonizing rendition of the Welsh National Anthem. The same was followed by the signature God Save The King before the dismissal of the officers. Lastly, the duo also sat in order for an official picture with the entire Welsh Regiment.
The Prince and Princess of Wales then further met with family members of the ones in the company as well as the 5th Royal Australian Regiment.
