Kate Middleton’s got a little pilot on her hands! The Duchess of Cambridge helped celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets on Sunday, February 7, and revealed to one of the honorees that little Prince George has his eyes to the sky.
“He is now obsessed with the air cadets and wants to join,” Lucinda Conder, 19, told reporters of what Middleton, 34, told her during a brief chat. “We are going to have to push that one when he gets to age 12.”
This was Middleton’s first formal solo engagement as the organization’s first female honorary commandant.
The stylish royal wore a powder blue Alexander McQueen coat, blue suede heels and a Lock & Co. hat for the occasion, which included a service at the RAF church, St. Clement Danes, followed by a reception at the Royal Courts of Justice.
The Duchess of Cambridge also wore a special RAF Air Cadets Dacre brooch.
The RAF Air Cadets is comprised of 42,000 air cadets aged 12 to 19, with 15,000 adult volunteers across the U.K. and abroad; the organization promoted interest in aviation among young men and women.
The Duke of Edinburgh passed on his patronage of the RAF Air Cadets to Middleton in December after serving as its Air Commodore-in-Chief for 63 years.
