Kate Middleton was seen wearing a camouflage jacket in recent pictures from a special outing in support of Armed Forces Day on Saturday.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted a series of stunning new photos to Instagram from Kate’s visit to Surrey’s Pirbright Training Academy in November 2021.
Kate included a touching message in addition to the gorgeous pictures. “William and I would like to pay tribute to the brave men and women, past and present, serving in all of our armed forces, on land, at sea, and in the air, here in the UK and around the world today on Armed Forces Day,” she wrote. We appreciate everything you and your families have given up to keep us safe.
“Last year, I had the honor of spending time with the @BritishArmy to observe how they instruct both active-duty soldiers and recruits. I am looking forward to learning more about the @RoyalNavy and @RoyalAirForceUK in the future. It was wonderful to see first-hand the many significant and varied roles the military plays every day to protect us all.
The Duchess visited the 101 Operational Sustainment Brigade at Abingdon Airfield and spent time with them to observe the training of new recruits and serving personnel.
She spent time talking to personnel about their experiences in the Army as well as taking part in some of the training exercises.
The series of images captures the mother-of-three hard at work as she inspects a piece of equipment up close while wearing thick ear protection and green camouflage.
Another image from the event depicts the 40-year-old dressed in full headgear speaking into a microphone while seated in front of a screen. It also includes pictures of the Duchess interacting with Brigade members.
It’s known that Kate also intends to visit the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.
