The British Royal Family has a long standing connection with the St. Patrick's day. In 1900, Queen Victoria forms the Irish Guards, a foot regiment, to honour the Irishmen who had fought in the Second Boer War. The Queen asked all the Irish guards to wear a sprig of shamrock in their headdress to “commemorate the gallantry” of her Irish soldiers.

Every year on March 17, Irish community observes the St Patrick's Day on the death anniversary of the patron saint of Ireland - St. Patrick. By birth St. Patrick was not Irish - he was British. He spent 6 years in captivity and after getting away, he took religious training that lasted 15 years. With the time, his death anniversary turned into a day celebrating the Irish culture, Military parades, food festivals and much more.The day is marked with Shamrock.
