Kate Middleton talks Christmas party sugar highs

In her first-ever interview, Middleton, 63, revealed she's playing hostess to daughter Kate Middleton, Prince William and their three children for Christmas this year (the Cambridges are expected to skip Sandringham with the queen and opting to spend time at Granny Middleton's Berkshire home, instead).

"It's sad we won't be home for Christmas, but to get that personal message from them with the duke and duchess is lovely".

They also handed out presents from family members they met at a party they hosted last night at Kensington Palace. "The absence of people you love must be especially hard at this time of year or at those special family moments".

"As we approach Christmas, Catherine and I feel strongly that praise for your work and recognition of your sacrifices is exactly what is due to you all".

The day after the party, the parents of three traveled to Cyprus to visit the servicemen and women at RAF Akrotiri, an air force base on the lovely Mediterranean island near Greece.

'Kate was asking Harry where his mummy and daddy were and she said to me it's quite a commitment but it was great for the family to have us pulling everything together.

They met personnel from 11 and 31 Squadrons, operating Typhoon and Tornado aircraft, who have been flying missions in support of Operation SHADER, the UK's contribution to the ongoing campaign against Isis in Syria and Iraq. A large portion of them have children who will have a parent away over the festive period.

Kate and Prince William traveled on Wednesday to Cyprus where they helped spread holiday cheer, meeting with military personnel and families living at the base.

When asked by a royal fan where his five-year-old, three-year-old and seven-month-old were, Prince William honestly answered, "Because I can't do this and look after the children". "Or maybe that should be flexitarian", she said.

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".
