Kate Middleton shared photos of herself dressed in full military uniform with other photos documenting her recent visit to a British Army training camp on Saturday.
The images were posted on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts in honor of the United Kingdom’s annual Armed Forces Day.
The first Instagram slide shows Middleton, 40, dressed head to toe in army gear, leaning over and seemingly inspecting a piece of equipment. In the following image, she wears a helmet while sitting in a tank, only visible from the neck up.
Accompanying the snap-“shots” was a brief statement from the Duchess of Cambridge reading,
“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.”
Signage on a shed in yet another picture indicated the location to be the Army Training Centre Pirbright, which is located about 30 miles west of London.
The text went on to explain that Middleton had paid a visit to the UK military outpost “[l]ast year,” mentioning that she had the opportunity to witness first-hand “how they train serving personnel and new recruits.”
It concluded, “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 @RoyalNavy and @RoyalAirForceUK in due course,” before signing off with a “C” for Catherine.
“Camo looks good on the Duchess,” one commenter remarked on the Instagram post.
Over on Twitter, @AlexTai2781 gushed of Middleton’s glowing tribute to the British armed forces, “I can’t think of a better advocate .”
