Passing out parade!

TWO Irish Guards passed out during a St Patrick's Day parade for the Duchess of Cambridge.

The shattered squaddies were wearing full dress uniform complete with scarlet tunic and famous bearskin hat when they keeled over.

It was shortly before Kate Middleton, 30, arrived at the base in Mons Barracks in Aldershot, Hampshire, yesterday. The soldiers, from 1st Battalion Irish Guards, were taken for medical treatment as the Duchess presented shamrocks to 40 officers and warrant officers at the parade.

It was her first solo military engagement and will be the start of a longstanding relationship with the Irish Guards.
