Kate Middleton reveals Prince Louis is learning to wave

Kate Middleton nails Christmas style in thousand-dollar plaid

Meanwhile, Kate revealed that Prince Louis, who is seven months old, has already started practising his royal wave.

"Did we meet any of your families yesterday?" the Duchess asked a small circle of service men and women.

He also praised the sacrifices of their families, many of whom the couple had met on Tuesday, when they held a party at Kensington Palace and collected gifts to transport to the base.

The Duchess wore a red Jenny Packham shift dress for the occasion and beamed as photographers snapped her with her third child.

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

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. According to the Duke of Cambridge, he told his eldest son that they were going to see the pilots on that day, and he told his dad to take a picture of them. I think some of the grandparents felt slightly bombarded.

"The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year", the royal continued. William joked before Middleton, 36, chimed in, "You're a nightmare with that!"

The British military base in Cyprus is now used for both reconnaissance and bombing missions against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Kate and William's appearance on Wednesday came amid suggestions of a rift between them and the Sussexes, following the announcement that Meghan and Harry will be moving away from Kensington Palace next year.

Former Royal Air Force pilot William recalled the tokens he would use to make 15-minute calls home when he was serving time away.

Her husband said: "We see our main function as giving my daughter and her husband peace of mind".
