'Royal Mail' Christmas delivery as duke and duchess visit troops in Cyprus

'Royal Mail' Christmas delivery as duke and duchess visit troops in Cyprus”

While the royals celebrated the new spot, William advised the men to "keep the pizza off the sofas!" Kate looked elegantly casual in wide-legged pants, a white silk shirt and a khaki jacket, with her hair half swept off her face.

Kate usually opts for dresses or skinny pants when attending royal engagements.

And on Wednesday, they arrived at RAF Akrotiri on Cyprus bearing presents from the children, wives and parents from Coningsby invited to the palace event.

It comes after the Duchess of Sussex started the trend by wearing wide leg pants for a number of royal engagements.

Posing for a holiday snap alongside military personnel who are spending their Christmas in Cyprus, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stood in for a Christmas photo at which point William basically pointed out that Kate was dressed like the backdrop.

William and Kate met a boy whose dad is in Cyprus, while his mum posted to Afghanistan.

William and Kate could not help themselves and indulged in a little festive fun after staging a Santa's grotto in the grounds of their Kensington Palace home for more than 200 wives, girlfriends, parents and grandparents holding the fort at home.

Kate looked very festive for the occasion in a stunning red checked skirt.

They seemed to love it and looked so shocked!

'Not only are we grateful for you coming here to join our party, but also for the sacrifices you make on a daily basis on behalf of the nation.

'As someone whose husband has served, I know how hard it feels when a loved one leaves home to do the job they've trained for'.

Kate said: "William and I just wanted to pass on our huge gratitude to all of you here today".

After attending the Queen's diplomatic reception at Buckingham Palace last night, the couple flew out of RAF Brize Norton early this morning. Kate looked like a Disney Princess come to life wearing a dazzling bespoke gown by Jenny Packham and her late mother-in-law Princess Diana's favorite tiara, the Lover's Knot.
