Prince William Costume from his wedding day:

At his wedding, Prince William wore the full uniform of the Irish Guards mounted officer in Guard of Honor Order. The tunic was a bright red (scarlet) color with distinctive buttons holding the coat closed. The tunic also features a gold collar and gold wrist guards, as well as a gold and crimson colored sash. There were gold sword slings as well on the uniform, but no sword. One top of the tunic, and an essential part that you’ll need to complete your costume, is a blue sash going from one shoulder down to the hip – which represents the Order of the Garder. Finish your costume off with some of the additional ornaments Prince William tacked onto his tunic, such as a pin resembling the Royal Air Force Wings.
