Get your shamrock ready.

The royals never miss a chance to celebrate the United Kingdom, and they play a key role in the Saint Patrick's Day traditions in Great Britain.
The Queen Mother was previously responsible for presenting a bowl of Irish shamrocks to the members of the Irish Guards, a regiment in the British Army, for the soldiers to wear.
This traditional role has been the responsibility of a female member of the royal family since its inception in 1901, but controversially in 2016 Duchess Catherine was absent from the proceedings, saying that she wished to spend the day with her children at the time.
The Duchess has since resumed the royal tradition, attending in 2017, 2018 and indeed this year, where she wore a stunning green Alexander McQueen coat.
