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

EMMA MOUCHETKev Gaitland coordinated the display

The celebrations began earlier in the day with a service at Westminster Abbey followed by a parade down The Mall of 1,300 serving military personnel.

After the royal appearance, the family watched the flypast from a balcony at Buckingham Palace with great ceremony.

Meghan, who joined the illustrious family only in May, has not been awarded yet.

It was a sharp contrast with Meghan's balcony debut at Trooping the Colour exactly one month ago on 10th June. Her new sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, wore an ice blue fitted dress and matching fascinator.

She completed her look by wearing pale heels also by Dior.

Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle, 36, were among just 30 guests invited to Louis' christening.

Prince Louis' grandparents on both sides, Carole and Michael Middleton and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, all beamed with pride as they arrived at St James' Palace.

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.

In the morning, Queen Elizabeth, Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, and Camilla all attended a service honoring the milestone at Westminster Abbey in London.

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 Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged to create the RAF, the world's first independent air service, on 1 April 1918. The simple dress featured a sleeve and a v-shaped neckline, which she paired with a statement headpiece.

"Bringing together that big parade, the new colour and the flypast - this is going to be a tremendous day, and it is about commemorating all of our history, and it is about celebrating what we do today", he said.
