Kate Middleton Makes A Bold Statement With St. Patrick's Day Outfit (PHOTOS)

Monochromatic much, duchess?

Everyone's favorite royal couple stepped out Monday for the first time in what felt like an eternity, and, as usual, all eyes were on Kate and her festive ensemble. She and Prince William presented shamrocks at the annual St. Patrick's Day parade in Aldershot, England.

The duchess got decked out in green from fascinator to feet for the occasion, and looked gorgeous -- not to mention happy as a clam -- in a Hobbs coat and Gina Foster hat. Even though she is famous for recycling outfits and the look is pretty similar to the one she wore to last years' parade, these pieces are new.

This marks the royal couple's first appearance since before they slipped away to the Maldives for a bit of R & R -- perhaps that's why they seem so happy and relaxed? Either that, or the adorable pup they're pictured with.
