Kate Middleton nails Christmas style in thousand-dollar plaid

William and Kate passed on Christmas presents they had received from family members whom they met in London on Tuesday, Kensington Palace said on its official Twitter account.

The Duke said: "George said to me this morning where are you going daddy and I said I'm going to see some pilots who fly fast jets". Middleton touched on her shared experience of having a husband in military service during her speech to guests.

Numerous presents had been given to the royal couple yesterday at a party they threw at Kensington Palace in London for the wives, husbands, children and parents of staff from RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham, who will be spending Christmas away from home.

When George Whitefield, co-director of the children's events company Sharky and George which staged the day's entertainment, appeared with a handful of mock snowballs, that was all the encouragement William needed.

She said she had some idea how the relatives felt at this time of year as William, a former RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, had served in the Falklands for six weeks in 2012.

Talking about spending time away from her family at Christmas, she said: "It's emotional, I think it's easier for us out here because we just muck in together".

As the gifts were handed out in the Sergeant's mess, Kate turned to some RAF personnel that included Squadron Leader Sarah Waghorn and others and joked about delivering the mail. "On behalf of everyone back home, we would like to say thank you".

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

Prince William and Kate are travelling to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus where they will bring the troops some messages from their families in the UK.

While at a royal engagement in Cyprus, Prince William made sure to remind us all that while he's not the King of England (yet!) He's certainly the king of dad jokes.

Her husband said: "We see our main function as giving my daughter and her husband peace of mind".
