Prince William's wife Duchess Kate took part in a very touching video call with families of loved ones lost in war and William spoke with a few members of the Armed Forces himself. See Kate's lovely connection with a young boy.

Kate Middleton's Remembrance Day Video Call

Duchess Kate spoke with Chantelle Wynn, Serena Alexander, Charlton Taylor, and Sonia Fleming on Remembrance Day. When expressing her support the Duchess said, "It's been a real honour to speak to all of you, and I think I speak for the whole nation when I say just how proud you should be of your loved ones, and for the sacrifice and the bravery that they've shown."

"I'll certainly be thinking of you this difficult week and will be for many years to come," Kate lovingly expressed. Those in her conference call voiced how grateful they were for the help provided by the Royal British Legion.

"At a time of such bleak times, the Legion provided a bit of a comfort blanket as well as the practical support. It was the moral support and the kindness that meant so much to us all."

Kate then singled out 11-year-old Charlton from Rhyl who was wearing his late father's medals. She asked him, "Are those your daddy's medals?" Charlton proudly showed each medal, "Ones for the service, ones for Afghanistan, and one is for Iraq."

Duchess Kate told him it was "very special" to be wearing the honourable medals. 

Prince William also spoke with deployed servicemen and women on what Remembrance means to them. "We are still thinking about you guys, where you are and the important job you're all doing. And everyone is very grateful and I hope that we can remind people how committed and determined and how brilliant all the people we have in the Forces are."
