The Duchess hosted a Christmas party for military families with Prince William at Kensington Palace. For the event, she wore the perfect holiday plaid skirt. The skirt is by Emilia Wickstead and it features the perfect, for the season, bright red, green, and white tartan. She paired the chic skirt with a cardigan by Brora, which she buttoned it up and wore it like a blouse.

This Christmas party involved families of Royal Air Force (RAF) personnel from the RAF Coningsby and RAF Marham stations currently serving in Cyprus.

As William and Kate were walking towards the party they were stunned by a blower dispensing snow. They both then shared a laugh at their moment of surprise.

At the event, Kate gave a brief speech where she recalled the times her husband served as a helicopter pilot in the Royal Air Force.

“As someone whose husband has served, I know how hard it feels when a loved one leaves to do the job they trained for,” she said. “When William served doing search and rescue, I remember how I felt, but I can’t imagine how it feel when your loved ones are away on active service during Christmas. The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year.”
