St. Patrick's Day isn't a holiday only commoners celebrate; our favorite royal couple, Prince William and Princess Kate, are partaking in festivities, as well.

A series of photos on Kensington Palace's official Instagram account gives us great insight into what the dynamic duo was up to on the special day. They attended the Irish Guards' St. Patrick's Day parade in London where they honored the Guards by presenting them with shamrocks. This is in accordance with decades of tradition.

After they presented the shamrocks to the Guards, William formed a salute dressed in formal attire with his wife standing next to him wearing a beautiful dark green coat by Catherine Walker.

The parade commenced with the Guards walking into the Cavalry Barracks, led by their mascot: a 4-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Domhnall.

But would the royals be royals if they didn't do a little socializing? Another Instagram post shows how William and Kate were sure to talk to Guards and their families during the celebration.

Similar to what happened when the Duchess visited the Ronald McDonald House in London, a little girl kindly presented her with a bouquet of flowers.
