Kate Middleton proved yet again there is nothing she cannot tackle in her royal role.

England’s future queen recently shared new photos of herself in military fatigues at Pirbright Training Academy for Armed Forces Day.

While she only shared the photos now on her and Prince William’s official Instagram account, they were in fact taken last November during a visit.

She accompanied the pictures with a heartfelt message in which she thanked the armed forces “at sea, on land and in the air, here in the UK and around the world” for their “sacrifice to keep us safe”.

“Last year, I was honoured to spend 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 the military play day in, day out to protect us all.”

To show she had personally posted the message, she signed off with a ‘C’.

Kate was a military wife when William was a search-and-rescue pilot for the RAF in Wales.

There are reportedly plans for her to play a more active role in the future with the RAF and Royal Navy.
