Kate and William are due to fly out to the Royal Air Force base on Cyprus to visit the troops and deliver Christmas cards and gifts from their loved ones back home in the United Kingdom. "It's not about credit or recognition - for you, it's just about service", he said. While it was previously suggested that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be celebrating separately with the Middleton family, it appears they will be joining the royals along with their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

'Not only are we grateful for you coming here to join our party, but also for the sacrifices you make on a daily basis on behalf of the nation.

Speaking at the event, Kate said she could understand what it is like to see your loved one go away to do the job they trained for, after seeing Prince William deployed to the Falklands to fly a search and rescue helicopter - but she also admitted she couldn't imagine what it would be like to have a loved one away at Christmas.

During a Kensington Palace Christmas party on Tuesday, the Cambridges met the families of pilots, senior officers and ground crews from 11 Squadron - a Typhoon fighter unit based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire and flying missions from Cyprus to combat Isis.

"We are in your debt and Catherine and I feel very lucky to be able to spend time with you today".

Children's entertainer George Whitefield, who put on the event, said Prince William 'saw I had some in my hand and he had a little mischievous nod and wink and looked like he wanted one to throw back at us'. We felt quite responsible.

William and Kate met a boy whose dad is in Cyprus, while his mum posted to Afghanistan.

When asked by a royal fan where his five-year-old, three-year-old and seven-month-old were, Prince William honestly answered, "Because I can't do this and look after the children".

"From my time in uniform, we both know a bit of what it feels like to balance your work commitments with your family life", William told troops. "Did they get back [home] okay?"
