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.

The 36-year-old Duchess of Cambridge joined her husband in Cyprus on Wednesday for a visit to a military base where they met with servicemen and women to offer their encouragement this holiday season. But I can't imagine how it feel when your loved ones are away on active service during Christmas. And so do your families, some of whom we had the chance to meet yesterday at a party at Kensington Palace.

And William's wife confidently delivered a heartfelt speech paying tribute to military families who will be parted from their loved ones at Christmas.

"The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year", the royal continued.

The 36-year-old teamed the stylish pants with a green military style blazer and white top as she visited RAF Akrotiri with Prince William.

Speaking in front of a crowd of RAF personnel and soldiers from the 2 Mercian Regiment, Prince William said: "As we approach Christmas, Catherine and I feel strongly that praise for your work and recognition of your sacrifices is exactly what is due to you all".

The event, in partnership with the Royal British Legion charity, was held just steps from where Wills and Kate live with Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 7 months.

William began the visit by thanking the Armed Forces deployed overseas on behalf of the nation.

'William said he'd remember Harry's name and mention him to his dad when he saw him in Cyprus'.

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. "They've got an important job to do and they don't have time to worry about their son".
