The Groom

Prince William chose to wear the uniform of Colonel of the Irish Guards on his Wedding Day.  Prince William, who is commissioned in all three Armed Services, and who has served actively with the Army (The Household Cavalry Regiment) and with the Royal Air Force (Search and Rescue Force), chose to wear the uniform of his senior honorary appointment in the Army.

Prince William wore an Irish Guards Mounted Officer's uniform in Guard of Honour Order with a Forage Cap.

The Prince wore a gold and crimson sash, and gold sword slings, both of which are worn in the presence of a Member of the Royal Family.  The Prince did not wear a sword.

The Prince wore the Garter Sash with the Wings of the Royal Air Force, the Garter Star and the Golden Jubilee Medal.

The tunic, in Guards' Red, features the Irish Guards' distinctive arrangement of buttons in groups of four.  The buttons feature the Harp of Ireland surmounted by the Crown Imperial.  The arrangement of buttons on the uniform denotes the Irish Guards' position in the Order of Battle as the Fourth Regiment of Foot Guards

The Insignia of the Irish Guards on the Forage Cap is the eight-pointed Star of the Most Illustrious Order of St. Patrick, and features the Regiment's motto 'Quis Separabit?' ('Who shall separate us?').

The uniform was fitted by Kashket and Partners.
