Queen attends Westminster Abbey service to commemorate RAF's centenary

Led by the Queen, the royals were attending a service to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

She started her morning attending a service for the RAF at Westminster Abbey alongside her husband, The Queen and other senior royals, before the royals returned to Buckingham Palace.

And he's not the only child who had a cute reaction to meeting a member of the royal family.

Kate is now in the middle of maternity leave for Prince Louis and hasn't yet returned to full-time royal duties.


This was an opportunity to meet RAF veterans, serving personnel and their families. Kate Middleton went with an icy blue dress by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen, and a hat by Sean Barrett.

And amid turmoil in the Cabinet and her Government, Mrs May delivered a reading at the service, Hebrews 11:32-12:2, with the head of the RAF Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier also taking to the lectern.

The Duchess of Cambridge paused her maternity leave on Tuesday for a special occasion, close to her heart - literally.

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.


Royal watchers were equally excited to see the young royal couples - Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton - together again.

Just 15 years after the first-ever powered flight undertaken by the Wright brothers, the decision to create the RAF was made after the War Cabinet inquiry criticised the poor organisation of Britain's air forces. We'll, of course, let you know if they do.

Last month, Markle was spotted wearing light color palettes during her public engagements.
