Earlier this week, Kate Middleton returned to her royal duties following her family's summer break. For her first public appearance since Wimbledon, Kate visited RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire to meet those who supported the UK's evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan.

As she explored the RAF base, Kate couldn't help but comment on how much her kids would love to see the planes, and revealed its something they bond over with their father, Prince William.

Lordmaster Sergeant Mark Curtis, who gave Kate her tour around the base, told People about the sweet story she shared. "She did mention that her children are very interested in aircraft," he said.

The Cambridge kids interest in aircraft seems fitting considering Prince William previously spent two years working as an RAF search and rescue pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance.

Prince William clearly passed his love of flying down to his kids, who have been spotted on several aircraft-themed day trips. In 2016, Prince George enjoyed a visit to the world's largest military air show, the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford. After their visit, Kate said George was "obsessed with planes and wants to become an air cadet" [via OK!].

The following year, Prince George was given a tour of a helicopter in Hamburg as he travelled around Germany and Poland with his family.

A love of aircrafts isn't the only hobby the Cambridge kids share with their royal relatives. As it turns out, they also love horse-riding with their great-grandmother, the Queen. According to The Times, Her Majesty is "taking a close interest in her great-grandchildren’s progress in the saddle." which is actually adorable.

When they've had enough practice, it's reported that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be expected to join the Queen for rides at Windsor and Balmoral. As for Prince William and Kate Middleton's response to this newly-discovered horsey passion, it's believed that William is "thrilled" – so smiles around then!

And, as if aircrafts and horse-riding wasn't enough, the Cambridge kids also love a spot of arts and crafts. Tbh, who doesn't love spending a rainy day doing some papier-mâché!? Celebrating Mother's Day earlier this year, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis made some very sweet (and poignant) homemade cards, not only for their mother, Kate Middleton, but for their 'Granny Diana', Princess Diana.
