Kate Middleton and Prince William host holiday party for military families

An annotated screengrab from a video by Daily Mail royal correspondent Rebecca English showing the snowball fight

In the hopes of honouring the family members and kids of military personnel stationed in Cyprus, who sadly won't be home for the holidays, Prince William and Kate put on a holly jolly bash - and there may have been a few too many sweet treats...

During a Kensington Palace Christmas party on Tuesday, the Cambridges met the families of pilots, senior officers and ground crews from 11 Squadron - a Typhoon fighter unit based at RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire and flying missions from Cyprus to combat Isis.

The mother of three asked if little Dorothy was sleeping through the night and Rhian later told reporters that Kate told her that her own son, Prince Louis, was starting to wave.

Prince William said that his experience in the armed forces, most recently as an RAF search and rescue pilot, meant "we both know a bit of what it feels like".

She said: "But I can't imagine how it feels when your loved ones are away on active service over Christmas or at those special family moments".

"The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year".

"But on behalf of everyone back home, we would like to say thank you", William said.

Prior to that, the duke reportedly offered to step out of frame, so Middleton could be photographed by herself.

'William said he'd remember Harry's name and mention him to his dad when he saw him in Cyprus'. "Did they get back [home] okay?"

"We took our children down to where the party was but everything was gone".

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