March 18 (UPI) -- The luck of the Irish?

Wearing the same green Emilia Wickstead dress coat she wore on St. Patrick's Day last year, Kate Middleton presented shamrock springs to the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at this year's parade at Aldershot Baracks in Hampshire, England on Sunday.

But the duchess of Cambridge suffered a mini wardrobe malfunction when her left heel got caught in a grate. Kate held on to her husband, Prince William, as she bent down to pull her stiletto out of the drain, laughing off the incident.

According to AceShowbiz, a 29-year-old soldier at the ceremony asked the pregnant duchess if she knew the sex of her baby. "Not yet," she reportedly said.

"She said, 'I'd like to have a boy and William would like a girl.' That's always the way. I asked her if she had any names and she said no," the soldier added.
