Kate Middleton, the Princess of Wales, has met with soldiers of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards, who are training Ukrainian soldiers at Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England, BBC News reported on March 8.

The princess was seen wearing an Irish Guards’ uniform jacket and khaki jeans as she watched training exercises and was shown how to dress wounds during a simulated exercise, said the BBC.

"The work of the Irish Guards is as wide-ranging as it is exemplary, from training park rangers on counter-poaching in East Africa to de-mining training for Ukrainian Armed Forces," she wrote on the Prince and Princess of Wales’ official Instagram account.

The princess first visited the army last year when she took over as Royal Colonel of the Irish Guards from her husband, Prince William.

King Charles visited the English training ground, where the Ukrainian military is undergoing training, in February.
