‘Royal’ mail delivery for RAF base
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge paid tribute to British forces stationed overseas this Christmas by delivering presents to a Cyprus military base – and quipped their service was “really Royal Mail”.
During a Kensington Palace Christmas party on Tuesday, the Cambridges met the families of pilots, senior officers and ground crews from 11 Squadron - a Typhoon fighter unit based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire and flying missions from Cyprus to combat the Islamic State.
They arrived at RAF Akrotiri yesterday with presents from the Coningsby families invited to the palace event.
