Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton wear identical shoes for RAF ceremony

Prince Louis' Godparents Revealed Ahead of Today's Christening

Britain's Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Queen Elizabeth, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry, Prince William, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Princess Anne stand on the balcony of Buckingham Palace as they watch a fly past to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force in central London, Britain July 10, 2018. (Picture: PA) "Tenacity, skill and gallantry have been your hallmarks, ' she said".

"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".

"The Royal Air Force has won a place in the heart of our Nation, and I wish All Ranks, past and present, together with your families, every good fortune for your second century of service".

This year marks the centenary of the Royal Air Force - the world's first independent air force - which was founded on 1 April 1918, independent of the British Army and Royal Navy.

Earlier the royals attended a service at Westminster Abbey along with dignitaries including Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and the defence secretary, Gavin Williamson.

The service was followed by an RAF parade of more than 1,300 down The Mall before the royals moved to Buckingham Palace's balcony to watch a flypast.

Prince Louis' christening will go down today inside The Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace, and now, we know who the little guy's godparents will be.

The flypast is set to feature aircraft including Puma and Chinook helicopters, a Lancaster, Spitfires, Hurricanes, the A400M Atlas, Tornados, Typhoons and the F-35 stealth fighter jets.

A display by the Red Arrows brought the airshow to a close, streaming red, white and blue smoke down the length of The Mall.

An RAF ensign was draped over the high altar behind him, as he said that people should remember with "sorrow and profound thanksgiving" those who gave their lives, and give thanks for all those who served with the RAF in war and peace.

Prince William - the Duke of Cambridge - is the most recent member of the family to qualify, receiving his RAF pilot's wings in 2008 and later qualifying as an operational captain with the RAF Search and Rescue Force.
