Queen marks 100 years of Britain's RAF ahead of flypast

Prince Louis' christening will go down today inside The Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace, and now, we know who the little guy's godparents will be.

The Queen and other members of the Royal Family saw the display - which included the new F-35 fighter and Spitfires - from the palace balcony. Markle paired the Audrey Hepburn-esque number with a vibrant Stephen Jones fascinator and beige pumps.

Meanwhile, Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton, school friend Hannah Carter and William's pal Lady Laura Meade are Louis' godmothers.

Eagle-eyed watchers have noted that Meghan, who was wearing a black Dior dress with bateau neckline, was missing a brooch in her outfit.

It's expected that the former actress will receive an honour in time, as her husband Prince Harry served in the British Armed Forced for 10 years.

Meghan and Harry will head straight from the service to Dublin for a two-day tour.

And tellingly, the Duchess stood in pride of place alongside Her Majesty who is these days usually flanked by one of her sons in the absence of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge watch the RAF flypast on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

Ahead of the speech, the Queen presented a new flag, known as a "Colour" to the RAF Regiment.

The Royal Air Force marked its official centenary on 1st April but made a decision to wait for exactly 100 days until the 10th July to have the formal parade and flypast.

The monarch was due to return to London on Monday before a busy schedule of events including a meeting with US President Donald Trump on Friday at Windsor Castle.

The princess does have something to look forward to: A piece of her parents' wedding cake.

The flypast drew thousands of spectators, passing over the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, and the streets of Central London before reaching The Mall, the ceremonial avenue leading up to Buckingham Palace.
