He and the Duchess had a picturesque moment together as a machine sprayed fake snow over the couple as they walked. Setting the scene perfectly.


At the palace party, kids enjoyed an fun mix of activities, including a photo booth, Christmas stocking, snow globe decorating, cracker making and entertainment from U.K. party planners Sharky and George.

During the event, the Duchess gave a speech recalling when Prince William served as a helicopter pilot in the Royal Air Force.

“As someone whose husband has served, I know how hard it feels when a loved one leaves to do the job they trained for,” Duchess Kate said. “When William served in the Falklands or went search and rescue, I remember how it felt. But I can’t imagine how it feel when your loved ones are away on active service during Christmas. The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year or at those special family moments.”

The festivities took place a day before the royal parents 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 U.K.
