The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have presented Afghanistan medals to the Irish Guards in Windsor.

It is the first time the royal couple have visited the regiment since Prince William became Colonel of the Irish Guards earlier this year.

The 1st Battalion Irish Guards returned to the UK in April following a six-month tour of Afghanistan.

The duke and duchess also held private meetings with families of those who served there before the parade.

The BBC's Helena Lee described the presentation of medals.
