Prince William’s cheeky joke about Duchess Kate's outfit

Prince William’s cheeky joke about Duchess Kate's outfit

On Wednesday, Prince William was in happy spirits, joking about his wife’s outfit during a visit to a RAF base in Cyprus.

The royal duo posed for photos with military personnel at RAF Akrotiri when the second-in-line to the throne noticed a similarity between his wife and the Christmas decorations.

The Duke of Cambridge commented: “My wife's camouflaged against the tree.”

In order for Kate to pose solo, he later jokingly asked his wife: “Do you want me to move out of the photo?”

The royal mum-of-three, 36, wore a $1236.76 green blazer by Canadian label Smythe for the visit, along with a pair of $241.46 wide-legged trousers from Jigsaw.

The Duchess of Cambridge completed the look with a white silk top underneath, an olive green clutch bag by LK Bennett and co-ordinating heels.

Kate also wore the stylish blazer during her tour of Canada in 2016.

Both William and Kate looked delighted to be meeting with the service personnel, delivering them presents from their families back home.

Earlier this week, the couple hosted a party at Kensington Palace for the partners, children and parents of those from RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham, who will all be away for Christmas due to their service.

The royals happily mingled with their guests, with William telling a pilot: “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?"' 

Meanwhile, Kate revealed that Prince Louis has started practising how to wave.

Speaking to guest Rhian Davis, who was carrying her 10-week-old daughter Dorothy, the Duchess explained how her baby has been learning new skills.

Rhian recalled: “She asked whether she was sleeping through the night and she told me that Louis is starting to wave.”
