Kate looked gorgeous in a red coat, paying tribute to the Welsh flag. Upon arrival, the Princess received a beautiful bouquet.

The Princess giggled as she received a traditional leek pin during the parade.

As well as the pin, Kate also sported the Welsh Guards leek brooch. 

In an address to the Welsh Guards, William said: “I am both honoured and delighted to be standing here in front of you today as your new Colonel.  At the same time, I’m sorry that my father couldn’t be here with us here today to say farewell, but I know he would talk of his fierce pride and admiration for you all, and of his own sadness to be moving on from an appointment he held so dear since 1975.”
