Kate Middleton has paid tribute to brave soldiers on the occasion of Armed Forces Day.

The 40-year-old Duchess of Cambridge used the Instagram account she shares with Prince William to write a personal message to mark the occasion.

She also shared new photos of herself on a visit to a British army base last November, when she visited Pirbright Training Academy to meet new recruits.

In a heartfelt message, she wrote: “Today on Armed Forces Day, William and I would like to pay tribute to the brave men and women, past and present, who served in all our armed forces, at sea, on land and in the air, here in the UK and around the world.

Thank you for everything you and your families sacrifice to keep us safe.”

She added: ‘Last year I had the honor of spending time with the @BritishArmy to see how they train waitstaff and new recruits.

“It has been great to see first hand the many important and varied roles the military plays day in and day out to protect us all, and I look forward to discovering more about the @RoyalNavy and @RoyalAirForceUK in due course. ‘

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

The Duchess, who was celebrating her husband’s 40th birthday earlier this week, threw a cheeky grin on one photo while donning a helmet, and on others meeting soldiers in training.

Armed Forces Day takes place every year on the last Saturday in June, to commemorate men and women who have previously served or are currently serving in the British Armed Forces.

Kate proved once again that she likes to get into action earlier this week when she kicked about and sipped a beer during a visit to Cambridge with Prince William.
