Kate Middleton has a new title.
King Charles III has named his daughter-in-law as the new honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards. The new royal role is a fitting one for the Princes of Wales, who has been honoring that guards regiment most St. Patrick’s Day holidays since marrying into the royal family in 2011.
At the parade, Kate usually sports a green ensemble to greet the Irish Guards. There are a few other fun staples, such as an appearance from regimental mascot Irish wolfhound Turlough Mor (also known as Seamus!) and a toast with Guinness!
Princess Kate, 40, is actually taking over the role from someone quite close: her husband, Prince William! Queen Elizabeth named her grandson as honorary Colonel of the Irish Guards in 2011, just two months before Kate and William’s royal wedding, where the groom sported the red Irish Guards officer uniform for the ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
Prince William now has a new royal role of his own — King Charles announced his son as Colonel of the Welsh Guards, fitting with his new title of the Prince of Wales. In a speech given just one day after Queen Elizabeth’s death on Sept. 8, King Charles announced the royal title.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK!
