Kate Middleton attended her first St Patrick's Day Parade at Mons Barracks with Prince William on March 17th, 2023.

As Charles III reassigned royal patronages, William gave his wife the rank of Colonel of the Irish Guards.

Body language expert Judi James analyzed their body language and found Kate looked powerful.

Kate adopted a serious look and stood at attention as William handed over the title to her.

James noted that Kate's body language was military, rather than royal.

William responded to Kate's serious look with a proud smile.

Kate gave the Irish Wolf Hound regimental mascot customary sprigs of shamrock.

Officers and guardsmen received the sprigs from the mascot after Kate delivered them.

The event was Kate's first as Colonel of the regiment.
