We’ve never seen Kate like this before! Armed Forces Day is celebrated in England on Saturday. As part of this, Kensington Palace is sharing previously unseen photos of the Duchess of Cambridge. It shows: Kate in action! In a military uniform and with headphones, the future queen is handling the trailer hitch of a train car. Another shows her with a helmet. Captioning the photos, the 40-year-old wrote: “Today, on Armed Forces Day, William and I would like to pay tribute to the brave men and women, past and present, who serve in our military, at sea, on land and in the air, here at… United Kingdom and around the world Thank you for the sacrifices you and your families make to keep us safe Last year I had the honor of spending time with the British Army to see how new staff and recruits It has been wonderful to learn about the many important and diverse roles the military plays on a day-to-day basis to keep us safe. I look forward to learning more about the Navy and Air Force soon.” The post is simply signed with a “C”.
Duchess Kate’s close ties to the military – and soon she could make history
The Duchess of Cambridge holds the title of Honorary Air Commandant of the RAF Air Cadets. She also regularly accompanies her husband, Prince William, to military parades. This includes the parade on St. Patrick’s Day. The Duke of Cambridge is a Colonel in the Irish Guards. Rumors surfaced this spring that Kate could inherit a military title from Prince Andrew. According to the “Sunday Times” she is wanted as the new Colonel of the Grenadier Guards. That would make her only the second after the Queen to hold the title of princess in the 1940s. An official decision has not yet been announced. However, the post clearly shows that Kate is ready to dig into the armed forces and isn’t afraid to step into the role of a soldier.
So far, the future queen has mainly promoted her project “Early Years”. For years Kate has consulted with experts in the field of early childhood education. She has come to realize that the experiences of the first five years of life affect a person’s entire life. In 2018 she formed a group of people from science, healthcare and research. In 2020, Kate launched a national poll on the subject. A year later she founded the Center for Early Childhood. At her national and international events, she networks with other groups.
