With their son George by their side, Kate and William were then introduced to Red 1 and Red 10 from the RAF Red Arrows before the young prince sat in the cockpit of one of the aerobatic team’s jets, and later the cockpit of a static RAF Squirrel helicopter.

Andy Armstrong, Chief Executive of RAF Charitable Trust Enterprises, which runs the airshow, spoke of his delight that the Air Tattoo team were able to welcome the Royal couple to RAF Fairford.

“There’s no doubt that the Royal couple’s attendance today created an exciting atmosphere, particularly amongst our huge team of hard-working air cadets. Those who were lucky enough to meet the Duke and Duchess were thrilled.

“Their visit came as a very fitting acknowledgement of not only the hard work and efforts of all of the air cadets, but also those of the 2,000-plus team of Air Tattoo volunteers, who work so hard to make the show possible.”

During his time in the Royal Air Force, HRH The Duke of Cambridge was a member of 22 Sqn, the RAF Search and Rescue Force based at RAF Valley in Anglesey. He left in 2013 and is currently Patron of the Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Honorary Air Commandant of Royal Air Force Coningsby.
