  • Bookmakers say Duchess Meghan is unlikely to be godparent to Prince Louis with family friends the favourites

After cruising toward London and flying over the Olympic Park and the capital's financial center, they will roar past the royal family, who will be watching from the palace balcony.

"Tenacity, skill and gallantry have been your hallmarks as you helped safeguard freedom and security in many parts of the world".

The baptism will take place at the Chapel Royal of St. James' Palace in London, which just so happens to reportedly be where Meghan Markle was baptised prior to her wedding to Prince Harry. Sophie, Countess of Wessex; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; and Anne, Princess Royal, all wore a Dacre brooch on their left chest.

"The bun is quickly becoming the Duchess's signature look", hairstylist Jason Collier told the Daily Mail, "so it's no surprise to see her sporting this style at today's ceremony". Could her heels have been a touch uncomfortable? She stuck out her tongue as she arrived at her Uncle Harry and Aunt Meghan's wedding.

"This look also shows the neckline of her dress beautifully; she clearly likes the combination of a bateau neckline, a fascinator and an up "do".

She later remembered the Battle of Britain, saying: "I remember the Battle of Britain being battled in the sky above us and we should never forget the sacrifice".

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.

100 aircraft swept across the United Kingdom capital on July 10 in the centrepiece event of the 2018 RAF Centenary.

The operational strength of the RAF in Europe had diminished to about 2,000 aircraft by the time World War II began in September 1939.

Today, the RAF is engaged on some 13 missions across 26 countries and is heavily committed on operations both at home and overseas. This will be open for public viewing until the end of August 2018.

The royals started the day by attending a service at Westminster Abbey celebrating the RAF's history.

Thousands gathered across Essex to watch a flyover of aircraft to mark the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.

This was an opportunity to meet RAF veterans, serving personnel and their families.

Prince Harry and his brother Prince William both wore full RAF uniforms to the event, while Duchess Kate wore an Alexander McQueen number for the second day in a row, according to People.
