Kate Middleton congratulated the British military on Armed Forces Day, which is celebrated in the country on June 26. On the occasion of the holiday, the Duchess of Cambridge shared on Instagram* photos taken during her visit to the Pirbright military training camp.

At the camp, Kate talked to the soldiers, tried on her military uniform, studied the equipment and even climbed into the tank – all this was captured in the pictures.

Today, on Armed Forces Day, William and I would like to congratulate all the brave men and women, present and past, who serve in our military at sea, in the sky or on land here in the UK and around the world. Thank you and your families for your sacrifices for our safety,
