British royals William and Kate visit Paris as Brexit looms

Kate distributed shamrocks to officers during the parade, too, although it's hard to imagine them stacking up to the verdant decoration she pinned to her own coat.

But yes, yes, tell us about the clothes, you say.

After a detour by the Trocadéro and the Musée d'Orsay, Kate and William finished their Parisian weekend at the Stade de France to watch the France-Wales match.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will travel to Paris on Friday, on a two-day official visit.

Kate Middleton wears a Chanel dress with Tod's fringed leather pumps on March 18, day two of her visit to Paris with Prince William.

The Duchess of Cambridge did her best to put on a united front on as they honoured the Irish Guards on St Patrick's Day. It is also reported that William's wife Kate Middleton is highly upset with the videos and trouble has started brewing their paradise.

William and Kate attended a series of events to honor and celebrate the French for their resilience in the wake of the Paris and Nice terrorist attacks and to celebrate French arts and culture. Our relationship is just as strong and enduring today.

The attack further rattled France, which remains under a state of emergency after attacks over the past two years that have killed 235 people.

Prince William, second-in-line to the British throne, has been criticised by some British newspapers this week for going skiing and dancing with friends in the Swiss Alps, missing a service at London's Westminster Abbey attended by other members of the royal family.

Following the Paris tour, the couple will visit Germany and Poland in July in a similar bid to bolster relations with European Union nations in post-Brexit Britain, reports The Guardian. The trips are meant to remind European neighbors that Britain will remain their ally and partner.

"I retain the fondest of memories of my five state visits over the years, as well as an enduring affection for this attractive country and its people", she said.

Later, William and Kate headed to the launch of Les Voisins with the British ambassador to France, Edward Llewellyn.

Among the guests were the movie stars Kristin Scott Thomas, Audrey Tautou and Jean Reno. And it is sure to be a poignant visit for the future King, as it comes ahead of the 20th anniversary of the death of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, who was tragically killed in a auto accident in Paris in August 1997.
