Prince William and Prince Harry have a shared interest that unites them. The royal brothers love all things aviation. Kate, Duchess of Cambridge let slip that her children George, Charlotte and Louis seem to have inherited this love for aircraft too.
The Duchess of Cambridge divulged this sweet tidbit to the delight of royals fans while on a visit to RAF Brize Norton airbase.
The Duchess visited the airbase to thank the brave servicemen and women who helped evacuate thousands from Afghanistan.
While listening to the stories of the heroes who helped in the evacuation, she also let slip some stories about her own family.
She said her children have sweetly taken an interest in their uncle and father’s passion for aviation.
Loadmaster Sergeant Mark Curtis told People: ”She did mention that her children are very interested in aircraft.”
It comes as no surprise that the young royals have inherited a love for aviation.
Both their uncle and father’s jobs involved flying aircraft before their marriages.
Prince William was a pilot with the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force.
In the early years of his marriage, his career saw him move to Anglesey, Wales.
He was stationed at a search-and-rescue base there.
He only stepped back from his pilot duties in 2013.
Kensington Palace announced he had left the RAF to commit his time more fully to his royal duties and charity work.
Not to be left out, Prince Harry followed his bother into a career in the air.
Before his marriage, Prince Harry was a helicopter pilot and flew Apaches during his 10-year Army career.
Prince Harry even carried out two tours in Afghanistan.
Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte have been pictured getting up close with planes, while their parents conducted royal duties at RAF bases and air shows.
The royals seemed keen to tag along, both siblings beamed as they’re allowed onto a variety of stationed aircraft.
Wing Commander Kevin Latchman said the opportunity to welcome Kate to the base was “fantastic, to be honest”.
He added, “The fact that’s been recognised on the royal level is brilliant, and it was lovely to meet the Duchess of Cambridge, very personable and clearly very interested in what we did.”
