Early on Tuesday morning the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Kensington Palace for the Christmas party they arranged for military personnel, and Kate looked fashionably festive.


The party got arranged for the families of military personnel serving in Cyprus over the festive period. Kate looked stunning in a red Emilia Wickstead pleated skirt with a black cashmere cardigan while Prince William looked casual in a blue jumper and navy trousers.


Kate spoke a few words in honor of those in service and their families holding down the fort at home, as she commented not being able to imagine how they feel during this holiday period without their loved ones.

She empathized with the families and mentioned the time Prince William had served in 2012 for six weeks as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, but noting that it is nothing compared to what the families must be going through now.

A touching addition to the party was a photo booth and a post box where families could take pictures and send messages to their loved ones away on service in Cyprus. There were also stalls where children could decorate stockings or snow globes.

Making crackers and creating Christmas party kits were also a fun option, and of course, Father Christmas was also there to spread some holiday cheer.


The royal couple spent time with the children as they helped them make treats and festive cards and play games with them. Prince William and Kate organized two days of engagements with RAF families as their way of showing their gratitude and appreciation for the 7,500 military personnel currently serving away from home.


Today Kate and Prince William are set to travel to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus where they will deliver gifts and cards to the personnel currently serving there from their families.


Interestingly enough, the Duchess of Cambridge does not have the title of Princess, even though she is married to a Prince. When the couple wed, she became Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Although a logical reason presents itself in the form of an archaic British royal rule that says that women take their husband’s name after being wed, the inclusion then can only be made when she is referred to as ‘Princess William.’

Kate may not be titled as Princess directly, but she is considered to be one and looked as stylish and beautiful during the party as she always does.
