Kate Middleton reveals Prince Louis is learning to wave

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".

As artificial snow fell, William chucked artificial snowballs at a children's entertainer, and Kate was caught in the crossfire.

People reports that a Kensington Palace spokesperson said of the rumour, "It never happened".

He said about William and Kate: "For them to come out here and recognise the service, it goes to show that the work the men and women are doing is still valued".

"Not only are we grateful for you coming here to join our party, but also for the sacrifices you make on a daily basis on behalf of the nation".

The Duchess told the military families at the children's party that, as the wife of "someone whose husband has served", she understood "how it feels when a loved one leaves home to do the job they're trained for". "The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year or at those special family moments".

While he might only be seven-months-old, Prince Louis is already learning a key skill: the royal wave.Kate Middleton made the adorable revelation on Wednesday, December 5, while speaking to a well-wisher during a walkabout at the RAF Akrotiri base in Cyprus.

"We know this isn't easy for you or for your wives, husbands, children, and friends back in the UK".

Speaking in front of a crowd of RAF personnel and soldiers from the 2 Mercian Regiment, Prince William said: "As we approach Christmas, Catherine and I feel strongly that praise for your work and recognition of your sacrifices is exactly what is due to you all".

William and Kate met a boy whose dad is in Cyprus, while his mum posted to Afghanistan.

According to the palace, they outlined this year's festivities writing that William and Kate will have "two engagements in London and in Cyprus in support of deployed military personnel and their families who will be apart over the festive period".

The couple said they had handed over a present of a bottle of aftershave for William and Kate to take over to Cyprus.
