Prince William jokes that Kate looks like a Christmas tree

Kate The Duchess of Cambridge meets children at Kensington Palace in London where she is hosting a Christmas party for families and children of serving Air Force personnel Tuesday Dec. 4 2018. The Christmas party hosted by Prince William and Kate Duch

William also spoke with a group of pilots and was overheard saying, "I told George this morning we were going to see the pilots today, and he said, 'If you see a helicopter, can you take a picture?'"

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.

"Yesterday they were all talking about what we do at the party and I guess all the families are proud of what we do and serving".

"We know this isn't easy for you or for your wives, husbands, children, and friends back in the UK".

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

Kate seemed to be channeling her sister-in-law's style as she arrived in Cyprus wearing wide-legged pants, left.

And on Tuesday night Kate put on a glamorous display as she attended the annual white tie Diplomatic Corps reception at Buckingham Palace with William.

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

While at a royal engagement in Cyprus, Prince William made sure to remind us all that while he's not the King of England (yet!) He's certainly the king of dad jokes.

Squadron leader Sarah Waghorn, a senior engineering officer with 11 Squadron, was one of those to get presents from home from Prince William. But I can't imagine how it feel when your loved ones are away on active service during Christmas.

Staff sergeant David Blayney, from the Cyprus Operational Support Unit, was in the crowds with his family waiting for the Duke and Duchess.

By making the short visit to RAF Akrotiri, the couple hope to highlight the contribution and sacrifices personnel and their families make throughout the year but especially when they are separated at Christmas.

People did confirm, though, that Kate was "left in tears" after a fitting for Princess Charlotte's dress for Meghan and Prince Harry's royal wedding.
