High life for Kate as Queen opens cyber centre

By Tony Jones

The Duchess of Cambridge has shown off her flying skills during a visit to an RAF base.

Sat at the controls of a flight simulator, Kate revealed she has what it takes to become a military pilot, and was dubbed "a natural" by her instructor.

The Duchess had come to meet air cadets taking part in a half-term skills development camp at RAF Wittering, near Peterborough, in her role as royal patron and Honorary Air Commandant of the RAF Air Cadets.

Under the guidance of Flight Lieutenant Michael Salter, she was soon tuned into the task of piloting the mock motor glider.

Flt Lt Salter said: "She was extremely good - she was a natural."
