  • Prince William and Duchess Catherine have released a new video clip on Instagram, and it’s rather emotional. 

    In the video, the Irish Guardsman’s son can be seen running across the football pitch, before jumping into his dad’s arms. The couple have captioned the picture, ‘A sweet moment as Lcpl Laverty of the @IrishGuards, of which Prince William is Colonel, returns home from training to surprise his son.’

    Fans were quick to post their well wishes to the father and son, with some expressing how the video has made them feel ‘teary’.

    Today marks the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. 80 years ago, the @RoyalAirForceUK defended the UK from Nazi Germany’s air force, the Luftwaffe. It was the first major battle fought entirely in the air, and Nazi Germany’s first major military defeat. This year we remember those who made this victory possible: From the hard work and determination of 'The Many', to the courage and sacrifice of 'The Few' – the 2,945 RAF aircrew who faced the Luftwaffe from July to October 1940. Swipe to watch a short film from @royalbritishlegion to see the story of the #BattleofBritain — and learn why we remember the contribution of all British, Commonwealth and Allied Forces, without whom victory wouldn't have been possible.

    While a third commented, ‘This is what’s so precious about Prince William and Duchess Catherine, it’s never about them and never do they make a huge fuss about what they have lost or cud have gained. They graciously take little sweet moments like these of general people and mightily champion them. This is what we’ve seen in the holdstill project and all their other campaigns. Original ideas cause they listen to people. If world leaders were like these two, what a beautiful place we wud have lived in. Absolute blessings The Cambridges.’
