In a video, the Duke of Cambridge can be seen sitting alongside wife Kate Middleton-who broke her maternity leave for a surprise appearance at the event.

Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle, 36, were among just 30 guests invited to Louis' christening. 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.

She paired the dark navy number with a very pale pair of nude leather heels, while Kate's were more of a pink/nude shade to let her pastel coloured dress take centre stage.

As she and her family left the chapel where Prince Louis had been baptized and began to make their way to a post-christening reception party, she told the phalanx of photographers "you're not coming" or perhaps "he's not coming".

Prince William formerly served as an RAF search-and-rescue pilot, while Prince Harry received helicopter training from the RAF during his time in the Army Air Corps.

Bookmakers are predicting Prince William and Kate will choose friends over family as Prince Louis' godparents.


Markle and Prince Harry have a busy schedule ahead of them-they'll be commencing their historic tour of Dublin later today.

The Royal Air Force marked its official centenary on 1st April but chose to wait for exactly 100 days until the 10th July to have the formal parade and flypast.

"Her Majesty the Queen, who recently visited Chester, will attend a special service of thanks giving at Westminster Abbey and then watch the skies above Bucking Palace as they filled with up to 100 aircraft for the official fly-past".


Duchess of Sussex attends Royal Ascot with husband Prince Harry. The Queen is scheduled to meet President Donald Trump later this week. This will be followed by a spectacular flypast, which will route directly overhead Buckingham Palace at 1pm.
