He's back! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been reunited – after being apart for seven weeks – when he returned from duty in the remote south Atlantic.

Early Wednesday morning, William, 29, flew back from the Falkland Islands to Britain with the rest of his Royal Air Force Search and Rescue helicopter crew. Kate, 30, met him at the airbase.

"The Duke of Cambridge returned to the U.K. this morning following completion of a routine operational deployment in the Falkland Islands as part of a four man Search and Rescue crew. He will now have a brief period of leave before resuming Search and Rescue duties from RAF Valley shortly," said an official statement.





Now that they're back together, Kate and William will be at their cottage at Kensington Palace. He will also see members of his family, such as grandmother Queen Elizabeth, and no doubt re-bond with puppy Lupo.

It is anticipated that William will have several days off, which the couple "will spend privately," a spokesman says. Kate is not expected to be undertaking any public engagements for several weeks.

William will next have to report for duty at his airbase in Anglesey, North Wales.
