This Wednesday Kate Middleton finally returned to royal duties after the summer break. The Duchess made a visit to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, where she met with the personnel there, which had a big part to play in the evacuation of thousands of people from Afghanistan in the last couple of weeks. Even as she attends royal engagements, Kate children are never far behind, with the Duchess often sharing stories and anecdotes about her three children, George, Charlotte and Louis, and it seems this time is no different.
According to her Prince William and her three children have a shared interest. After she toured a RAF C17 Globemaster plane, Lordmaster Sergeant Mark Curtis said: “She did mention that her children are very interested in aircraft.”
This comes as no surprise taking into consideration Prince William’s history as a RAF search and rescue pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance back in 2015 to 2017, when the kids were much younger.
George, the oldest of the three, has already shown his love for aircraft, as he was only two when he attended the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford in 2016.
Then the following year in 2017 the future king was overjoyed as he was given a tour of a helicopter in Hamburg during the Cambridges’ tour of Germany and Poland.
In 2016, during an engagement marking the 75th anniversary of the Air Training Corps Kate revealed that George was “obsessed with planes and wants to become an air cadet”.
The Cambridge family spent the summer break mostly at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, with only a few visits to the Isles of Scilly and to the Queen’s estate at Balmoral in Scotland. But now the children will have to return to the classrooms, with George and Charlotte going back to Thomas’s Battersea, while Prince Louis will continue at Willcock’s nursery school.
