Kate Middleton makes debut as colonel in the Irish Guards on Women's Day

The Princess of Wales had her first training session as Colonel of the Irish Guards on Wednesday, a title that belonged to her husband, the Prince william, and which he received in December. Dressed in a camouflage suit and showing a determined attitude, Kate faced the low temperatures in the middle of the snow to participate in an exercise that simulated the rescue of a wounded soldier.

Attentive, the Princess of Wales joined a small group of military personnel to provide first aid to the allegedly injured person at the Salisbury Plain training camp, located in south-central England, helping to place a tourniquet on the injured leg and participating then in the respective evacuation.

The military responsible for the exercise, newellaged 25, later commented on the unusual situation: “I was so nervous – I’m teaching the Princess of Wales medical care! It was an honor. We showed her what we do in the army and she was really good, she was very interested in participating ”.

Later, a high ranking lieutenant colonel Aldridgealso commented on the event: “It is particularly fitting that on International Women’s Day some of our service members meet such an inspiring female role model.”.
