Kate Middleton surprised the royal fans as she appeared at the Household Division's Beating Retreat in London. This was the first time ever the Duchess of Cambridge attended the event which falls right before the famous Trooping the Color.

Senior members of the royal family always take the salute at the event and Kate had the honor to do so this year.

The royal mom chose a very elegant outfit that featured a beige coat dress, a pair of light brown heels and a matching clutch. She paired her look with a very special jewelry piece that she wore to honor the Queen Mother.

A special brooch

Kate Middleton is known to borrow stunning jewelry pieces from Princess Diana and the Queen’s extensive collections. However, the gorgeous shamrock brooch she was seen wearing at the Beating Retreat is believed to be owned by the Irish Guards.

The piece was created by Cartier and gifted to Princess Mary by the regiment back in 1961. Then the brooch traveled to the Queen Mother, who wore it on a number of occasions.

Since the Queen Mother’s passing Kate has been the exclusive wearer of the brooch ever since. The first time we saw her sporting the beautiful piece was in 2011 at the Victoria Barracks.

It’s evident that the Duchess loves this brooch as she wears it quite often. For the Beating Retreat, she paired it with Cavalfiore Pear Studs which she wore for the first time at Prince Louis’ christening.
