Prince William and Kate thank British troops in Cyprus

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have visited Cyprus to deliver gifts to United Kingdom service personnel who will be on duty - and away from family - at Christmas.

Both her and William visited the military servicemen to bring them Christmas presents from their families at home.

During a speech at the event, Kate spoke of how she sympathizes with families missing their loved ones this Christmas, describing her own experiences, too.

Kate told her guests: 'William and I just wanted to pass on our huge gratitude to all of you here today.

The previous day, they had hosted a party at Kensington Palace for the partners, children and parents of those from RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham, who will be spending Christmas away from home.

The Duchess, who was dressed characteristically stylish in a green Smythe blazer, white top, and wide-leg pants, shared a sweet moment with a young royal fan while meeting members of the local community.

He said about William and Kate: "For them to come out here and recognise the service, it goes to show that the work the men and women are doing is still valued".

They met personnel from 11 and 31 Squadrons, operating Typhoon and Tornado aircraft, who have been flying missions in support of Operation SHADER, the UK's contribution to the ongoing campaign against Isis in Syria and Iraq.
