Royal fans can't get enough of the pictures Kate Middleton shared on social media in celebration of Armed Forces Day.

The future queen posted the series of images on Twitter and Instagram on the day, Saturday, June 24, accompanied by a note of thanks to Britain's Armed Forces.

The pictures show Kate visiting Pirbright Training Academy in November, where she spent time with the 101 Operational Sustainment Brigade at Abingdon Airfield.

On her visit, Kate saw how new recruits and serving personnel are trained first hand, and was even put through her paces herself.

One picture show the duchess looking radiant as she dons a military helmet while she uses its headset.

Another picture captures the future queen of England beaming while dressed in camouflage and tending to a piece of military equipment, while in other pictures Kate is talking to personnel.

Accompanying the images was a message that said: "Today on Armed Forces Day, William and I would like to pay tribute to the brave men and women, past and present, serving in all of our armed forces, at sea, on land and in the air, here in the UK and around the world. Thank you for all you and your families sacrifice to keep us safe.

"Last year, I was honoured to spend time with the @BritishArmy to see how they train serving personnel and new recruits. It was wonderful to see first-hand the many important and varied roles the military play day in, day out to protect us all, and I look forward to discovering more about the @RoyalNavy and @RoyalAirForceUK in due course."

Naturally, royal fans are loving Kate's snaps.
