Kate Middleton Looks Festive in Plaid for Christmas Party With William

Kate Middleton and Prince William

As artificial snow fell, William chucked artificial snowballs at a children's entertainer, and Kate was caught in the crossfire.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a Christmas party for Royal Air Force families on Tuesday.

As the gifts were handed out in the Sergeant's mess, Kate turned to some RAF personnel that included Squadron Leader Sarah Waghorn and others and joked about delivering the mail. As a veteran of the armed forces himself, William knows the importance of a little getaway to catch up.

"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".

"From my time in uniform, we both know a bit of what it feels like to balance your work commitments with your family life".

With rumours swirling about the state of her relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, this festive season will be spent with the whole of the Royal Family at Sandringham in a show of unity. Royals: they may not be just like us, but they apparently eat like us when they're kicking back with a slice.

There's gratitude for you - you invite military families to a big Christmas party, and then someone thumps you with a snowball.

Over Christmas, 11,000 men and women will be deployed by the Army, Royal Navy and RAF in 35 countries, Prince William said in a brief speech.

Prince William and Kate are travelling to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus where they will bring the troops some messages from their families in the UK.

He proudly told one table how Prince George favoured his father's helicopters over the more glamorous jets like Typhoons, which fly from the base he visited.
