Kate Middleton gets candid about Prince William's 'nightmare' habit and Prince Louis' new 'wave'
During the Royal couple's visit to Cyprus yesterday, Kate spoke about 7-month-old Prince Louis already learning to wave and an annoying habit of Prince William.
On Wednesday, Kate Middleton and Prince William went to Cyprus to visit the RAF Akrotiri and to officially open the Oasis recreation center.

While there the Royal couple spread holiday cheer and gave the serving military members messages and gifts their families back home.
Prince William playfully teased the men, after spotting the yellow couches in the room, to “keep the pizza off the sofas!” Kate retorted, “You’re a nightmare with that!”

The Oasis recreation center is aimed at the younger personnel living in shared accommodation. It provides them with space where they can make private video calls and have some alone time.
Afterward, Kate spoke with well-wishers during walkabout outside the Warrant Officers and Sergeants’ Mess. 32-year-old Rhian Davis who had her 10-week old daughter Dorothy with her got to have a quick chat with Kate as they spoke about their children.

Kate then said the cutest thing about 7-month-old Louis, as Rhian shared:
“She asked whether she was sleeping through the night, and she told me that Louis is starting to wave.”
The Royal couple arrived early in Cyprus on Wednesday and started their day by speaking with personnel from different squadrons.

A communications specialist with No. 903 Expeditionary Air Wing, Scott Stewart, a father of three spoke with Kate and Prince William during their visit to the aircraft hanger on base and said:
“Having William and Kate here is a massive boost for everyone here. As a former serviceman himself, he spoke to us about how he understands it’s hard being away from our families.”
Prince William and Kate took part in a Christmas reception held at the sergeant’s mess, where the couple helped to deliver the presents from families they entertained on Tuesday.

Their day started early on Tuesday as well as Kate, and Prince William got ready for the Christmas party they held for families who have relatives in the military currently serving RAF and won’t be home for Christmas.
They welcomed over 200 people to the Kensington Palace Orangery for a party full of holiday cheer. It featured a photo booth, and a post box families could use to send messages, presents, and photos to their loved ones in Cyprus.
There were various stalls where children could make anything from crackers to decorating snowglobes. Father Christmas was there, of course.
At the Christmas Party, Kate spoke to the families, empathizing with them having to spend the holidays without some of their loved ones. With having an idea of what it was like herself when Prince William served in 2012 for six weeks as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot.
The events over the last two days got organized by the royal couple to honor and show their appreciation for the 7,500 military personnel currently serving away from home.
