The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge drinking Guinness is all of us on St Patrick's Day

By Prudence Wade

Except they were probably a whole lot better dressed.

There’s nothing quite like kicking back with a nice pint of Guinness to properly celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

Just like most of us, that’s exactly what the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have done today – however, we bet their celebration had a fair bit more pomp and circumstance than our trip down the pub.

William and Kate were honouring the Irish Guards in London. Prince William attended the parade in his role as colonel of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, an infantry unit who gather on St Patrick’s Day for the ceremonial celebration.

Led by a regimental band and their mascot Irish wolfhound Domhnall, 450 soldiers marched on Parade Square at the Cavalry Barracks, Hounslow, west London.

Unfortunately, William and Kate couldn’t stick around too long to enjoy a few more pints as they have already made their way to Paris to meet President Francois Hollande.

They are the guests of honour at a glittering dinner party in the French capital – definitely not a too shabby a way to spend St Paddy’s day if you ask us.
