Kate Middleton shattered a 115-year-old royal custom started by Princess Alexandra in 1901.

The custom involved presenting shamrocks to the Irish Guards on St Patrick's Day.

Since marrying Prince William in 2011, Kate has always joined him for the ceremony.

However, in 2016, Kensington Palace announced that Kate would no longer give shamrocks to the Irish Guards.

Her decision to break tradition was motivated by her desire to spend more time with her children.

Despite this, Kate remains committed to her royal responsibilities and was seen celebrating St Patrick's Day with Prince William and the Irish Guards.

She has even taken on the role of Colonel Irish Guards, succeeding Prince William.

Known for her hands-on parenting style, Kate is a devoted mother to her children.

Kate's focus on her family is a relatable and delightful departure from traditional royal practices.
