The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will make a brief stop in Cyprus in early December to show support to military and their families.

In a tweet on Friday afternoon, Kensington Palace said the royal couple would undertake two engagements to deliver a message of support to deployed personnel and to acknowledge the fact that many Serving personnel are away from their families at this time of the year.

'We’re delighted to be hosting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge next month when they come to visit those serving here in Cyprus'

Following an event in London on December 4, where Their Royal Highnesses will host a Christmas party, the royal couple will head over to Cyprus.

“On 5th December The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will fly to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to meet with Serving personnel, families living on the base, wider station personnel and members of the local community.”

In a response, a tweet from RAF Akrotiri said they were “delighted to be hosting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge next month when they come to visit those serving here in Cyprus."
