The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton, was seen giggling as she tried on a life vest during a visit to the Royal Naval Air Station (RNAS) Yeovilton, near Yeovil in Somerset today.
Kate looked stunning in a black suit as she toured one of the Royal Navy's two principal air stations and one of the busiest military airfields in the UK.
The royal, 41, donned a white top underneath her chic black blazer adorned with gold buttons, along with black heels and her brown hair down.
Kate, who is Commodore-in-Chief of the Fleet Air Arm, looked in high spirits as she chatted with military staff before trying on a large orange life vest, giggling as she attempted to inflate it.
She will spend time in the air traffic control tower to meet staff and speak to an airborne Wildcat helicopter crew.
Kate will then be shown a Merlin Mk4 helicopter, deployed by the Royal Marines globally to provide disaster relief, as well as a Merlin MK2, which is used to hunt for submarines.
The mum-of-three is also expected to try her hand at flying a Wildcat MK2 in a simulator, which allows aircrew to practice flying over land or on to ships.
Kate's visit to the airbase comes as husband Prince William is in New York.
The Prince of Wales will hold talks with UN Secretary General António Guterres during his whistle-stop visit to the United States to celebrate the 2023 Earthshot Prize finalists.
William will meet Mr Guterres during the UN General Assembly in New York today, as the city holds its annual climate week event – a gathering of business leaders, politicians and civil society aimed at driving the transition to a sustainable future.
The future king is making a two-day visit to the Big Apple to promote his Earthshot Prize, an ambitious environmental award, now in its third year.
Before meeting the global statesman, William will visit the Billion Oyster Project to learn more about the initiative which aims to restore oyster reefs to New York Harbour with the help of school children and volunteers.
On Tuesday, he will attend the Earthshot Prize Innovation Summit where the 2023 finalists will be named and their projects showcased.
He will address delegates alongside other speakers including former New York mayor and business news mogul Mike Bloomberg, a global adviser to Earthshot Prize winners, Dame Jacinda Ardern, Earthshot trustee former New Zealand prime minister, and Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft.
