On July 10th, 2018, Royals fans woke up to thrilling images online of The Fantastic Four: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Arriving in their Royal Air Force uniforms, the princes look handsome alongside their stunning wives.
The couples arrived at Westminster Abbey to pay their respects to the British Royal Air Force as it celebrated 100 years of service. For many Royal fans, this was a huge shocker as Kate Middleton was not expected to arrive.
After welcoming their third child on April 23rd, Prince Louis, William blessed Kate with his maternity leave. With the added time off from William, the Duchess wasn’t expected to make any appearances until after her maternity was over in Autumn 2018. Fans were hoping to only get surprised peaks of the Duchess from now until then, but on July 10th, she decided to pay her respects to the Royal Air Force with her husband and in-laws.
Apart from Prince Louis’ christening (which happened just one day prior on July 9th), this was one of the Duchess’ first official outings since welcoming her little Louis. She was, of course, at Harry and Meghan’s wedding and then the Trooping the Colour, but aside from that, she’s remained rather private since welcoming Louis.
But the Duchess’ debut to Royal events was made even more exciting when she got caught in a mishap between her in-laws, Prince Charles and Camilla!
While in Westminster Abbey, Charles was attempting to put on his gloves when he couldn’t. He began to get frustrated until Camilla came by his side to rescue him! Kate was watching the whole scenario unfold and couldn’t contain her laughter as Camilla took over and tried to help Charles put on his gloves.
Kate was pictured in the middle of their mini wardrobe fiasco laughing hysterically! It was so fun to see such genuine laughter from the Duchess- we’ve missed her sweet smile!
