The tribute to the RAF, which became the world's first independent air force when it was founded as a separate entity from the British Army and Royal Navy in 1918, began with a service at Westminster Abbey.

Meghan Markle changed for the third time today as she swapped her elegant forest green Givenchy ensemble for a sleek black square-neck belted midi by London-based designer Emilia Wickstead, a favorite of Kate Middleton, for a reception at the British Ambassador's official residence in Dublin, Ireland, on Tuesday. Meetings with The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and with The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, are both planned.

Their itinerary includes a variety of events and visits to various organizations "which are central to Irish life", according to Kensington Palace.

Later, they will take part in a Gaelic sports festival where traditional Irish sports like hurling, camogie and rounders will be played.

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.


Meghan, 36, and Prince Harry, 33, attended Prince Louis' christening yesterday looking as stylish and loved up as ever.

When Meghan signed her name with a flourish, Harry added, "Yours is much nicer than mine".

The royal brothers wore their military uniforms as they arrived at Westminster Abbey Tuesday morning for a service marking the centenary.

However neither Prince Harry nor Meghan were named among Louis' six godparents, with the honour going to Guy Pelly, who was once dubbed the "court jester", family friend Nicholas van Cutsem and William's school pal Harry Aubrey-Fletcher.

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who officiated their royal wedding on May 19, also presided over the christening.
