Now that’s what we call a military uniform!
The Duchess of Cambridge carried out her first official military role Saturday and she was dressed to thrill in a gorgeous navy colored Burberry military-style coat dress that showed off her super slim figure to it’s best effect.
Alongside her husband Prince William, Kate handed out medals to soldiers in the Irish guards, at the Victoria Barracks in London, honoring them for their recent tour of Afghanistan.
Kate was joined by the in-laws, William’s father, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
William, who serves as the Irish Guards’ first royal colonel said he was in “awe” of the soldiers’ sacrifices: “I can only imagine what the campaign medals you receive today must mean to you,” he said.
“Along with thousands of others back home, I followed your tour in Afghanistan with a mounting sense of awe.
“Over the years and decades ahead when you look at this medal, I’m sure it will bring back so many conflicting memories.
“Sadness for those who did not return, and thoughts of their families who received their Elizabeth Crosses today.”
