Kate Middleton Reveals Prince George Wants to be a Cadet Like Dad!
By Elizabeth VanMetre
It appears that Kate Middleton and Prince William have a little pilot on their hands!
The Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance at the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets on Sunday, where she took on her new role as Honorary Air Commandant and made the pledge to bring more volunteers to the association.
All eyes were on the Duchess, 34, who donned a long, robin egg's blue Alexander McQueen coat, which she paired with navy blue suede heels and a hat from Lock & Co. Attached to her coat was a large must-see Dacre diamond and Ruby RAF brooch. The pin is the highest honor a female cadet can receive, and while Kate was not an Air Cadet herself, she was still deserving of the honor, which was gifted to her following her appointment with the organization in December.
The event marked Kate’s first solo appearance for the organization, but she may already have her first recruit lined up -- her 2-year-old son, Prince George!
Lucinda Conder, a 19-year-old cadet, revealed that after the Duchess showed George photos of Spitfire fighter planes, the toddler decided he wanted to fly one -- just like his dad does!
"He is now obsessed with the air cadets and wants to join," Conder told reporters of the royal toddler.
It will be a while before George can fly a plane, but he is growing up fast! Prince George began nursery school at Westacre Montessori School Norfolk, England, last month. See the adorable photos from his first day of school in the video below.
