Prince William and Duchess Kate Bring Holiday Cheer to British Military Serving in Cyprus

Christmas came early for military families and personnel at an air force base in Cyprus after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge jetted in for a festive whirlwind visit.

For their second day of holiday engagements this week, Prince William and Duchess Kate chartered a Royal Air Force Voyager jet to fly to the Mediterranean island’s RAF Akrotiri base to honor servicemen and women serving overseas around the world.

The royal couple arrived on Tuesday, December 5 laden with gifts to pass on from the soldiers’ children, wives and relatives, whom they entertained the previous day at a special Kensington Palace Christmas party.
