Royal Wedding recap: Prince William wears red Irish Guards tunic

Filed by Lucire staff/April 29, 2011/14.54

A few of the Lucire team had the overall style of Kate Middleton’s wedding dress and the designer predicted accurately, but what many of us did not foresee was HRH Prince William’s choice of the Irish Guards tunic with a forage cap.
   The Prince had received his first honorary army appointment from his grandmother, HM the Queen, in February, as a Colonel of the 1st Bn Irish Guards.
   He also wore his Order of the Garter sash, a Golden Jubilee medal, and his wings from the Royal Air Force.
   Some observers thought that the Prince would wear a light blue RAF uniform, as he is currently a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot with the service. St James’s Palace insisted that he chose his Irish Guards uniform as it was his highest rank.
   His brother, HRH Prince Harry, wore his Household Cavalry uniform. He donned the wings of the Army Air Corps and a Golden Jubilee medal. Prince Harry also wore his Afghanistan campaign medals.
