“Last year I had the honor of spending time with the @BritishArmy to see how they train serving personnel and new recruits. It was wonderful to see first hand the many important and varied roles that the military play day in and day out to protect us all, and I look forward to hearing more about the @RoyalNavy and the @RoyalAirForceUK in due course.”

Kate got stuck

During the visit, the Duchess spent time with the 101 Operational Support Brigade at Abingdon Airfield to see firsthand how new recruits and serving personnel are trained.

She also participated in some of the training exercises and spent time talking to personnel about their experiences in the military.
