Posing for a holiday snap alongside military personnel who are spending their Christmas in Cyprus, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stood in for a Christmas photo at which point William basically pointed out that Kate was dressed like the backdrop.
As artificial snow fell, William chucked artificial snowballs at a children's entertainer, and Kate was caught in the crossfire.
He said about William and Kate: "For them to come out here and recognise the service, it goes to show that the work the men and women are doing is still valued".
'Not only are we grateful for you coming here to join our party, but also for the sacrifices you make on a daily basis on behalf of the nation.
"As someone whose husband has served, I know how hard it feels when a loved one leaves to do the job they trained for", Duchess Kate said at the event (via People). 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.
"We know this isn't easy for you or for your wives, husbands, children, and friends back in the UK".

Before that, he jokingly offered to step out of frame so Kate could be photographed by herself.
The 36-year-old teamed the stylish pants with a green military style blazer and white top as she visited RAF Akrotiri with Prince William.
The Duke said: "George said to me this morning where are you going daddy and I said I'm going to see some pilots who fly fast jets".
William and Kate were delivering cards and gifts from back home after they hosted a party at Kensington Palace yesterday for children and partners of some of those based in Cyprus.
Earlier the duchess had chatted to Barrie, 72, and Ann Macdonald, 70, from Manchester who are looking after their five-year-old grandson Harry while his parents are deployed overseas at Christmas.
Prince William and his wife Kate visited British military personnel based on Cyprus on Wednesday (Dec 5) to thank them for their contribution ahead of the festive period.
