Prince William and Kate Middleton were recently in Cyprus in order to spread some holiday cheer to the military families who won’t be able to be home for Christmas. While there, Kate took it upon herself to scold her husband about being a “nightmare with that” after William joked about not eating pizzas on the bright yellow couches residing in the Oasis recreation center that was officially opened. But not to worry, even though Kate was scolding William for his dad joke, we can forgive William because he’s a dad, and because he had a task that Prince George had given him.
While five-year-old George, three-year-old Princess Charlotte, and seven-month-old Prince Louis did not make the trip to Cyprus with their parents, George did make sure to tell his dad that he wanted just one thing from him while in Cyprus. “I told him [George] this morning we were going to see the pilots today,” William told pilots in the sergeants’ mass. According to William, George responded by saying, “‘If you see a helicopter can you take a picture?’” Audience: “awww.” Probably. And this was just one feel good thing that occurred for the soldiers and their families in Cyprus as Kate and William also brought gifts to troops at RAF Akrotiri, home of the Cyprus Operations Support Unit, from their loved ones back home.
Sarah Waghorn, the squadron Leader, said Kate and William said this: “They said their parcel service ‘really was the royal mail.'” Let’s assume that was just William trying out another dad joke. William. who is an ex-helicopter pilot himself, did decide to praise all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines deployed over the festive period, saying, “From my time in uniform, Catherine and I both know a bit of what it feels like to balance your work commitments with your family life.” William added, “You all put duty first. And so do your families. We know this isn’t easy.”
And something tells us that George will get that photo of a helicopter. He does get his own Christmas tree, so William getting him a photo seems like something that is pretty doable.
