It's not a total shock that the kiddos love planes, as their dad, Prince William, was a search and rescue captain in the Royal Air Force for many years.
Meanwhile, Prince Harry served in the Army for 10 years.
During Kate's trip, she met with military personnel and civilians who helped evacuate Afghans from their country last month.
Wing Commander Kevin Latchman, who flew three planes out of Kabul, was happy to show Kate the C17 Globemaster plane.
"The fact that's been recognized on the royal level is brilliant, and it was lovely to meet the Duchess of Cambridge, very personable and clearly very interested in what we did," he gushed.
Another skill William and Kate have taught their kids is to enjoy being on and in the water.
"They are very much a family of sailors now," a source dished. "Kate has always been a competent sailor and William’s pretty good too. They have enjoyed some wonderful time on the coast this summer sailing and showing the children how to steer and sail a boat."
The insider noted that the children "love the water and the two eldest are good swimmers and had no qualms about jumping into the sea even if it was a bit fresh."
"The kids were all running in and out of the water with their dog and spent hours playing in the sand," the source shared about their time off. "They are clearly a family that love being outdoors and in nature. It was lovely to see them playing so freely and not being bothered by anyone."
