The Duchess has made a new furry friend! Kate Middleton was greeted by a giant Irish Wolfhound on Friday for the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in London.

The Duchess of Cambridge was joined by her husband, Prince William, for the festivities, greeting the parade’s large furry mascot, Domnhall.
Domnhall accompanied the Band of Irish Guards as they performed for the royals and the crowd. Prince William served as the Colonel of the Irish Guards after his appointment in 2011.
Middleton was presented with a posy from 7-year-old Katie, the daughter of a sergeant. The Duchess sported an emerald green Catherine Walker coat with matching hat and heels.
Her husband wore his black uniform, but pinned a green sprig of shamrocks to his hat (so no pinching!).
