Kate Middleton spoke about Prince George with well-wishers during her visit to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to meet service personnel who will be away from their families for Christmas
Prince Louis is less than a year out but it turns out he’s already working on his royal wave.
The Duchess of Cambridge told well-wishers her third child, who was born in April, has started waving – how cute!
Kate chatted with crowds on a walkabout during her visit to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to meet service personnel who will be away from their families for Christmas.
When she was outside the Warrant Officers and Sergeants’ Mess, Kate chatted to Rhian Davis, 32, who was carrying 10-week-old daughter Dorothy in a sling.
Rhian said: “She asked whether she was sleeping through the night and she told me that Louis is starting to wave.”
Kate sharpened her look for the occasion, wearing black flares and a green blazer.
But all the excitement was all too much for a couple of the children waiting for their royal visitors.
One year old Mia Williams frowned at the Duchess, who laughed and told her: “It’s scary meeting new people.”
Mum Christine Williams, 26, said: “I’m so excited. It means loads – just that they know we are here and appreciate all we are doing.
“It’s lovely to see them. It makes it all worthwhile.”
Kate received flowers and a teddy bear and made a beeline for Harrison Brown, eight, who was wearing a jacket covered in dinosaurs, telling him it would go down well with her son, Prince George.
The schoolboy was not too clear on who she meant though and he said: “She said she know someone, called George I think, she said he would like the jacket.”
Samantha Sahota, five, told Kate she was upset the Duchess had not worn pink or a crown or arrived in a carriage.
Her grandmother Helen, who has run a jewellery shop on the camp for the past 40 years and met previous royal visitors including the Queen and Princess Anne, said: “Kate promised that next time she would weara pink dress and a crown.”
