Families of personnel from RAF Conningsby, who are also in Cyprus, have also been invited.

The following day, the Royal couple will fly to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus, to meet serving personnel.

Kensington palace said: 'Their Royal Highnesses wish to deliver a message of support to deployed personnel and to acknowledge and honour the fact that many serving personnel are away from their families at this time of the year.
