RAF's centenary to be marked by flypast over Palace

Prince Louis of Cambridge was born

Prince Louis of Cambridge was born

More so, England is now in the middle of a heatwave, as well as the 92-year-old monarch having a week filled with major royal events - including the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force and a historical meeting with US President Donald Trump.

Earlier, the little royal showed off her good manners as she shared a polite handshake with the Archbishop of Canterbury as she arrived for the christening.

As you may be aware, Prince Louis was christened yesterday and the royal event was the source of much media attention.

Lastly, the members of the Royal Family watched a presentation of the RAF 100 Relay, which had been carried throughout the United Kingdom for the last 100 days. Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wore an army green Ralph Lauren dress and hat by Stephen Jones.

Europe Correspondent Joy Reid looks at the history behind the Prince Louis' name.

She was joined on the balcony by her sons, Prince Charles and Prince Andrew, the Duchess of Cornwall and the "Fab Four": The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.


After telling the photographers that they were not coming with the royal family to Prince Louis' christening, she continued to give them a stare-down as she walked away.

He is also wearing the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by Angela Kelly, Dressmaker to The Queen.

This is because she has yet to hold an honorary position within the RAF's bases or squadrons, which would see her receive the highly-coveted accessory.

They include Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, whose daughter was a bridesmaid at the wedding of Harry and Meghan in May, and Guy Pelly, a childhood friend of William's. Prince George and Princess Charlotte were in attendance sure not to miss their younger brother's big day.

Along with cake, outfits and designers, Kate also reused Prince Louis' christening gown, having previously dressed both Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3 in it.
