For each vital commitment on her calendar, Kate Middleton never neglects to discover an imperially perfect outfit to check the event. Take the festive coat she wore around Christmas time this past December, for instance. Today, The Duchess went to the first Battalion Irish Guards St. Patrick’s Day Parade only outside of London with husband her husband Prince William, and picked a gathering that was impeccably appropriate for the celebrations. She grasped the day’s everything green-everything vibe—except in a ultra-modern way, obviously—leaving the splendid green beads and kitschy top hat at home.

For the occasion, Middleton wore an olive green topcoat by one of her most loved and most-worn labels, Alexander McQueen. With its sharp-carried line, nipped waist, and gold buttons, it proved to be an appropriate nod to St. Patrick’s Day without being too cheesy or on-the-nose. In any case, she didn’t thoroughly forgo the mark themes related with the holiday: on her left side, she stuck a straightforward gold shamrock brooch. She then decorated the look further with regal affirmed pieces including a coordinating olive fascinator, green tourmaline and amethyst hoops by London-based jeweler Kiki McDonough, and classic black pumps. All in all, an ensemble that was worthy of its own parade.
