Kate Middleton's Christmas Party Outfit Is So Adorably Festive

Kate Middleton's Christmas Party Outfit Is So Adorably Festive

William and Kate made a whirlwind visit to the Mediterranean island to honour the sacrifices and commitment of the UK's military deployed across the globe.

Families from RAF Marham and RAF Coningsby were invited to the palace for party games and Christmas activities.

"When William served doing search and rescue, I remember how I felt, but I can't imagine how it feel when your loved ones are away on active service during Christmas".

"The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year", Kate continued.

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".

She was hit with a mock snowball, but it was all in good spirits.

Children's entertainer George Whitefield, who put on the event, said Prince William 'saw I had some in my hand and he had a little mischievous nod and wink and looked like he wanted one to throw back at us'.

Kris Box says although influenza activity remains at minimal levels, the virus can still cause illness and even death. Typical flu symptoms are upper respiratory infections and a high fever.

As artificial snow fell the two exchanged snowballs and Kate even found herself the target of a playful attack.

The British military base in Cyprus is now used for both reconnaissance and bombing missions against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Wing Commander Paul O'Grady, 42, whose five-year-old son Harry was the star of the show at a party at Kensington Palace, said: "None of us look for any special attention, were just here to do our job".

Kate and William are due to fly out to the Royal Air Force base on Cyprus to visit the troops and deliver Christmas cards and gifts from their loved ones back home in the United Kingdom.

Kate and Prince William traveled on Wednesday to Cyprus where they helped spread holiday cheer, meeting with military personnel and families living at the base.

Her husband said: 'We see our main function as giving my daughter and her husband peace of mind. "Did they get back [home] okay?"

Prince William and Catherine had collected the presents from those family members when they hosted a party at Kensington Palace a day earlier.
