King Charles Presents New Colours to Kate Middleton’s Irish Guards Ahead of Trooping the Colour

King Charles presented the colours two days after Kate Middleton, who is the Colonel of the Irish Guards, missed the traditional royal event.

On Monday, King Charles presented the new regiment’s flag, known as ‘colours,’ to No. 9 and No. 12 Company of the Irish Guards, of which Kate Middleton is the honorary colonel, ahead of Trooping the Colour next week.

The palace shared a sweet video of the monarch presenting the colours to the guards on social media.

King Charles is the Colonel-in-Chief of the seven Guards regiments of the Household Division, who are often seen on ceremonial guard duty at the Royal Palaces.

According to the palace, “Ahead of Trooping the Colour next week, The King has presented New Colours to No. 9 and No. 12 Company The Irish Guards at Windsor Castle.”

The Colours form part of the Irish Guards’ legacy, representing those that have fought and died for the Regiment. To this day, they accompany soldiers on operations and, more visibly, on ceremonial duties.

Earlier, Kate Middleton, who is the Colonel of the Irish Guards, did not lead the Colonel’s Review on June 8 per tradition amid her cancer treatment.

Instead, she sent a letter sharing her “apologies” and expressed her commitment to join them as soon as possible.

This event highlights the ongoing duties of the royal family and the support they provide to each other during challenging times.

King Charles’ gesture not only honors the Irish Guards but also underscores the unity and resilience within the royal family.
