Prince William was married today in red – wearing the famous tunic of an Irish Guards officer. I see some viewers are looking for Prince William’s collar’s insignia. Well, this is Irish shamrock. The shamrock is a three-leafed old white clover. It is known as symbol of Ireland. The name shamrock is derived from Irish seamróg, which is the diminutive version of the Irish word for clover (seamair).
The tunic is Guards’ Red with gold piping, Irish shamrocks are on the collars and its buttons are arranged in fours, denoting the Irish – or Fourth – Regiment of Foot Guards. The buttons feature the Harp of Ireland surmounted by the Crown Imperial. The breeches are ivory and are worn with white stockings and black buckle shoes.
