Male Gaze: Prince William’s Jubilant St. Paddy’s Spirit

Hello (or happy belated St. Paddy’s) to our favorite duke in uniform. Yesterday, in Aldershot, England, the rosy-cheeked elder prince attended the Irish Guards’ St. Patrick’s Day Parade in impressive ceremonial regalia alongside his often scene-stealing duchess. While Kate subtly showed off her St. Paddy’s spirit (and baby bump) in a bottle-green coat, the Duke of Cambridge managed to one-up his wife by wearing a giant, fresh cluster of shamrocks directly on the center of his cap. He then proceeded to show off his cheery spirit by grinning throughout the entire procession, despite the inclement weather. That said, we always love a duke in uniform — whether he chooses to grow shamrocks on his forehead or not.
