Kate Middleton flies the flag for Wales in bright red for St Davids Day visit

Prince WilliamandKate Middletonhave today (March 1) visited the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards and attended their St David's Day Parade.

The Prince and Princess of Wales are attending the parade at Combermere Barracks, to celebrate St David, the Patron Saint of Wales.

Arriving at the Barracks, Kate sported a stunning red coat, a colour that is associated with the Welsh Dragon, and a glamorous black fascinator-style hat which she paired with some black gloves.

Sticking to a red and black theme, she also donned some black boots, and carried her belongings in a small black bag. The Princess further accessorised with a subtle brooch of the Welsh Guard's sigil.

Giving a speech to the gathered Guards and members of the public, the Prince of Wales wore uniform, with ER on the shoulder, which stands for Elizabeth Regina.

William also donned a military hat, which featured the sigil of the Welsh Guards.

The royal couple have spent the last few days touring Wales and yesterday visited Brynawel Rehabilitation Centre near Pontyclun where they announced a new collaboration to help create therapy allotments and gardens offering mental health support in south Wales.

Wales has a special place in both Kate and William’s hearts, with the country described as the royal duo’s “happy place”.

The now-Prince and Princess of Wales lived in Anglesey as newlyweds where William worked as a search and rescue pilot.

Discussing Wales being special, Jennie Bond told OK!: “Wales is very important to William and Kate – not only are they one day going to be the Prince and Princess of Wales it was also the place they lived so happily as newlyweds.”

Jennie went on to note that Kate and William were able to lead a largely “normal life” while residing in Anglesey.

“Their time in Anglesey was very very happy, they were pretty much under the radar and, for want of a better word, normal. William worked for the RAF and Kate could pop to the supermarket,” she said.

“It was a blissful start to married life for them. That was the last time they were able to lead a 'normal' life so it will always be their happy place.”
