Kate The Duchess of Cambridge meets children at Kensington Palace in London where she is hosting a Christmas party for families and children of serving Air Force personnel Tuesday Dec. 4 2018. The Christmas party hosted by Prince William and Kate Duch

Prince William and Kate Middleton ended their visit to Cyprus, where they spread holiday cheer to military families who will be away from home this Christmas, by officially opening the Oasis recreation center.

During the brief visit to RAF Akrotiri on the southern coast of Cyprus, William and Kate met with serving personnel, families living on the base and members of the local community.

"She asked whether [my daughter] was sleeping through the night, and she told me that Louis is starting to wave", Rhian Davis told People magazine about a conversation she had with the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate went on to highlight how she had some idea how the relatives felt at this time of year as William, a former RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, had served in the Falklands for six weeks in 2012.

The witty dad joke from HRH garnered quite some laugh from both Kate and the military personnel who were all captured laughing at William's one-liner. According to the Duke of Cambridge, he told his eldest son that they were going to see the pilots on that day, and he told his dad to take a picture of them. "On behalf of everyone back home, we would like to say thank you", the duke said.

Prior to that, the duke reportedly offered to step out of frame, so Middleton could be photographed by herself.

They met personnel from 11 and 31 Squadrons, operating Typhoon and Tornado aircraft, who have been flying missions in support of Operation SHADER, the UK's contribution to the ongoing campaign against Isis in Syria and Iraq. "Did they get back [home] okay?"

"We took the children down to where the party was but everything was gone", she said. William and Kate were relaxed as they mingled with partners, parents and children of RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham.
