  • Prince William and Kate Middleton with troops in Cyprus

Speaking in front of a crowd of RAF personnel and soldiers from the 2 Mercian Regiment, Prince William said: "As we approach Christmas, Catherine and I feel strongly that praise for your work and recognition of your sacrifices is exactly what is due to you all".

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid tribute to British forces stationed overseas this Christmas by delivering presents to a Cyprus military base - and quipped their service was "really Royal Mail". She attended a celebration for military families at Kensington Palace with Prince William, and there was even faux snow to further add to the spirit of the season.

They spent three hours at RAF Akrotiri meeting personnel and handing out presents.

But the Duchess of Cambridge looked chic in the flattering pants as she met personnel at the military base.

There's gratitude for you - you invite military families to a big Christmas party, and then someone thumps you with a snowball. "As someone whose husband served, I know how hard it feels when a loved one leaves home to do the job they trained for", the duchess said, as Prince William previously served as a RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.


"William said he'd remember Harry's name and mention him to his dad when he saw him in Cyprus".

Their daughter Claire O'Grady and her husband Paul, known as Pablo to the family, are both RAF Wing Commanders based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire, home to Typhoon squadrons which deploy to Cyprus and fly operations in support of Op Shader, the UK's contribution to the ongoing campaign against Isis. "Whereas for the families at home, there's that empty chair around the table at Christmas Day where we're normally sat".

They seemed to love it and looked so shocked!

Kate and William's appearance on Wednesday came amid suggestions of a rift between them and the Sussexes, following the announcement that Meghan and Harry will be moving away from Kensington Palace next year.
