Hello everyone! If you’ve been browsing the gallery the last few weeks, you may have noticed that I’ve finally updated the gallery with high quality additions from the Canadian and North American Tours the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did shortly after their marriage. Over 5,000 new images have been added, with maybe a few still missing give or take, that will be added as soon as they become available to us. The tours now also have their own category and are newly organized to hopefully make browsing a little easier. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to comment on this post or tweet us! We are also working on a new set up for the gallery, so if things look incomplete that is the reason. I hope all of you enjoy the new pictures and the new set up! Last but not least I would like to thank my friend Mary over at Keri Russell Web for all the donations!

Today, (February 07) Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge on her first official engagement of the year joined the air cadets to mark their 75th anniversary, as Honorary Air Commandant of the organization. In December The Duke of Edinburgh passed his patronage of the RAF Air Cadets on to the Duchess after 63 years serving as Air Commodore-in-Chief. Catherine first attended a church service following a reception giving Catherine the opportunity to get familiar with the program and activities and to meet and introduce herself to veterans, cadets, and volunteers. I have added 88 high quality photos to the gallery. Enjoy!
FYI: Catherine is wearing a Alexander McQueen coat, Lock and Co hat, and a Air Cadets Dacre brooch, known to be the highest award any female cadet can achieve.
Today His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh handed over Air Cadet patronage to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge after 63 years as Honorary Air Commodore-in-Chief. This will be Catherine’s first official royal link to the armed forces. This is also the first time Catherine has taken over a patronage from another royal. Kate is now Honorary Air Commandant of the Air Cadets and will represent an organization of 42,000 air cadets aged from 12 to 19, and 15,000 adult volunteers at more than 1,200 units across the UK and abroad.
Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty, Commandant of the Air Cadets, said after her audience with the Duke: “He is admired and respected by cadets and volunteers alike and we will miss his ready sense of humour and genuine interest in the development of the nation’s youth.”
Speaking about Kate, whose husband William served as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, she said: “We are absolutely thrilled that Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge has agreed to be our patron.
“Her links to the RAF family are already well-established and her desire to support youth development is well-recognised around the world.
“We hope that by acting as our Honorary Air Commandant she can see at first hand the amazing work of our adult volunteers who deliver a truly world-class cadet experience to many thousands of young people.”
