Now that's St. Patrick's Day fashion done right.

Kate Middleton continued run of recent royal festivities with her husband away on military duty in the Falkland Islands as she set out to Aldershot, England, to greet and charm the Irish guards on Saturday, March 17.

Here's one of our favorite Kate Middleton photos from the event:

Clad in an emerald coat dress cinched at the waist, the lovely Kate accessorized with a brown cap, matching pumps, and a bloom of shamrocks on to her lapel.

Kate Middleton also donned a clover pin that once belonged to The Queen Mother, Prince William's great-grandmother, who passed away in 2002.

After presenting soldiers with a basket of shamrocks (a tradition dating back to 1901), the 30-year-old got into the spirit with a sip of Harvey's Bristol Creme sherry.

Her outing also included adorning the Regimental mascot Clonmel (a black dog) with a shamrock on his collar. All in a day's work for the Duchess!

With Princes Harry (Brazil) and Prince William (the Falklands) otherwise occupied, it fell to Kate Middleton to help ramp up the excitement as the ambassador of the 2012 London Olympics during a private visit to the city's Olympic Park.

Did she ever. She worked out with Team Great Britain's field hockey squad!

  • Dressy Kate Middleton

Having played the sport herself (and even serving as her school's captain), the ever-game Duchess wasted no time joining in with the ladies. So how'd she do?

As with everything else, Kate Middleton proved herself to be a total natural.

"I was really looking forward to coming here, but now I am here and have discovered I have to play," she told the men's and women's teams beforehand.

"I am not feeling confident. The last time I played was 2005, maybe. It feels like I haven't held a stick for 10 years. This is going to be so embarrassing."

"My brain thinks I can do these things, but my body doesn't play ball. Oh, please don't tell me I have to do it in front of all these people!" she joked.

Kate missed the first three of her goal attempts, but ultimately scored a goal - to rapturous applause from all players and observers, of course.

Middleton swapped her blazer and heels for a gray Team GB sweatshirt, coral jeans and Adidas sneakers. She looks great in both ensembles, no?

Absence has made Kate Middleton's heart grow fonder.

With her husband off in the Falkland Islands on military duty, the Duchess of Cambridge confessed she has been "missing him terribly," but is keeping busy.

Among several successful solo engagements, Kate held her own for the first time as a member of the royal family, celebrating with Queen Elizabeth herself and the Duke of Edinburgh, as the family kicked off the Queen's Diamond Jubilee tour.

Kate isn't entirely alone with William in the Falklands. She has also had special company to keep her from being lonely in recent days: her new puppy, Lupo.

"I've got a dog keeping me occupied," the Duchess told interfaith worker Riaz Ravat at a lunch in Leicester. "I'm getting a lot of me time with the dog!"

Lupo, an adorable black cocker spaniel puppy that the pair adopted over the holidays, recently accompanied Kate on a walk through Kensington Gardens.

When it came to naming their brand new puppy, royal newlyweds Prince William and Kate Middleton decided to go a traditional, sophisticated route.

Standard operating procedure for a Duke and Duchess.

Kate Middleton let their closely guarded secret slip when talking to a group of school children at Rose Hill Primary School Tuesday: Its name is Lupo!

The cocker spaniel's moniker means 'wolf' in Italian.

Prince William, Kate Middleton, Puppy

Why the name Lupo? "There is no significance in it apart from they liked the name," a royal aide told the U.K. Daily Mail shortly after Kate spilled the beans.

Adopting the puppy in January, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge first met the canine over the Christmas holiday with her parents in Bucklebury, England.

"He belongs to a litter of spaniels from one of Carole Middleton's friends near home," a Palace aide said earlier this month when confirming Lupo's origin.

Late last year, Kate and William reportedly took the small canine companion home for a brief fostering period before making the adoption official.

"William and Catherine fell in love with the pup instantly and it wasn't long before they decided to keep him, officially, in their family," the source says.

Reese Witherspoon has a new film out (follow this link for a This Means War movie review), but another topic she discussed today was more interesting.

The 35-year-old actress went on Ellen to promote the film, but went on to talk about meeting Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton last summer!

“Somebody called me and said we’re having a really small fundraiser would you want to come over and meet the Prince and Princess? I was like, Yes.”

It gets better. Check a clip of Reese's interview with Ellen below:

“I must have tried on like six outfits. I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand ... You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing."

The Oscar winner continued:

"I don’t know, maybe we can be friends. She was really nice. She was just lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady. I think it’s so nice nowadays to see someone with such composure who carries herself so beautifully. Call me. Call me anytime!”

Sounds like someone's smitten! Not that we can blame her. Reese was later presented a Mr. T Chia Pet by Ellen. No idea why, but that's awesome.

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, will be immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds museum this spring, not once, not twice, not thrice, but four times!

Such is the popularity of the duchess and her fashion, that the waxwork attraction has decided to make four faux Kates, three of which will be unveiled April 4.

What will Kate Middleton be wearing in wax? These dresses!

  • William, Kate
  • Greeting the Public
  • Kate Middleton BAFTA Dress
  • Kate Middleton in Alice Temperley

Madame Tussauds will sculpt Kate replicas in (from left to right):

  1. A stunning, sheer Jenny Packham dress.
  2. The iconic blue Issa engagement dress in London.
  3. The lilac Alexander McQueen frock from the BAFTA gala in Los Angeles
  4. The black lace Temperley gown she wore to the premiere of War Horse.

"It is the first time that we have had a member of the royal family make their debut in multiple locations," a rep for Madame Tussauds tells People.

"All four designers have been involved in making the dresses and the Duke and Duchess have kept informed at every stage of the creation process."

Fun fact: The first royal family member to be immortalized in wax was William IV, who was monarch when Madame Tussauds first opened in London ... in 1835!

Mattel's collector's edition Duke and Duchess of Cambridge versions of Barbie and Ken have been released, and are quite regal - and realistic for miniature dolls!

Case in point: Barbie Kate Middleton isn't as voluptuous as the blonde original, while William/Ken isn't nearly as much of a fake-tanned metrosexual douche.

The toy company is releasing the special Prince William and Kate Middleton figurines in time to mark the real-life royal couple's one-year anniversary April 29.

Here they are, outfitted in their royal wedding attire:

William and Kate Barbies

William's red military jacket with a blue sash is a surprisingly accurate replica, as are Kate's Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown, tiara and engagement ring.

Kate Middleton has been a doll before, if you remember - last year, the Franklin Mint made an engagement edition - and in a different sense, she's a doll every day.

Sadly for those stateside, when the royal Barbie-and-Ken dolls go on sale for $155 from Amazon.com U.K. come April 7, they will not be offered in North America.

Shoppers throughout Europe, on the other hand, can buy all they want and charge absurd sums on eBay. International online commerce at its finest, people.
