Kate looks battle ready

Kate Middleton ensured that she looked the part for her first military role today, handing out medals to servicemen. K-Midds wore a navy blue double-breasted blue coat with gold buttons, accessorized with a beret worn at a 'jaunty' angle.

An aide to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge told The Mirror that she was particularly pleased to be carrying out the role for a regiment, 'so close to her husband's heart'.

Some might say that she pushed the boat out a little too far, considering that giving soldiers medals and marrying a Colonel of the Irish Guards (William to us) is the closest she'll get to battle...
