The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have paid tribute to service personnel on Armed Forces Day.
Kensington Palace released five new images of Kate meeting with the Army to mark the occasion.
Posting on Twitter, Kate wrote: “Today on Armed Forces Day, William and I would like to pay tribute to the brave men and women, past and present, serving in all of our armed forces, at sea, on land and in the air, here in the UK and around the world.
“Thank you for all you and your families sacrifice to keep us safe.”
The photographs were taken in November last year when Kate visited Pirbright Training Academy in Surrey and spent time with the 101 Operational Sustainment Brigade at Abingdon Airfield to see first-hand how new recruits and serving personnel are trained.
She also participated in some of the training exercises and spent time speaking to personnel about their experiences in the Army.
“Last year, I was honoured to spend time with the British Army to see how they train serving personnel and new recruits. It was wonderful to see first-hand the many important and varied roles the military play day in, day out to protect us all and I look forward to discovering more about the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force
in due course.”
