Kate, Duchess of Cambridge carries Prince Louis as they arrive for his christening service at the Chapel Royal, St James's Palace, London, Monday, July 9, 2018.

The Queen recalled how her father was the first member of her family to qualify as an RAF pilot and served alongside the service's founder Lord Trenchard.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge has been christened, marking his first public event since his birth on April 23.

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.

It's not because Meghan didn't want to ruin her outfit; it's because she hasn't been honoured with one yet.

The woman of the hour, Catherine, Duchess of Sussex, continued her tradition of wearing cream to all her children's christenings in Alexander McQueen.

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.

In a frank exchange with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, Mr Khan said: "My views are irrelevant". The events include an anti-Trump welly toss, a Trump's head coconut shy and satirical mini golf.

A service at Westminster Abbey was followed by a spectacular flypast over Buckingham Palace that saw around 100 aircraft taking part.

Prince William is seen shepherding in Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who hold his hands, while their mother stops to talk to the Archbishop of Canterbury.

Thankfully for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their youngest son, Prince Louis, was very well behaved during his eagerly anticipated christening, and the 11-week-old stayed fast asleep as his mum carried him into the chapel.

Nicholas Van Cutsem, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher, and Guy Pelly are Prince Louis' godfathers. She and the couple were seen laughing on the sidelines while Prince Harry gave a speech, and Markle was later spotted being affectionate with the Duchess on the lawn.

Pelly is a longtime friend of both William and Kate, and he was the one who planned William's bachelor party.

The new Duchess of Sussex managed to steal the show in a navy dress by Christian Dior and a hat by royal milliner Stephen Jones.
