Although Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were absent, Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles, as well as Pippa Middleton and husband James Matthews, all attended their relative's christening.

Earlier, the royals and more than 2,200 people packed Westminster Abbey for a service also attended by Theresa May, defence secretary Gavin Williamson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The 36-year-old stood to The Queen's left hand side and slightly behind her, as senior members of the royal family watched an historic fly-past on Tuesday afternoon to celebrate 100 years of the RAF.

The Duchess of Cambridge could be seen wearing an Air Cadets Dacre brooch, the highest award any female cadet can achieve.

Meghan opted for an olive ensemble for Monday's christening of nephew Prince Louis, her first royal baptism since marrying Prince Harry.

" President Trump's brazen insults and denigration of one of America's most steadfast allies, Germany , is an embarrassment". Asked about Mr Trump's suggestion, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said he would focus on what has been agreed to.

The whole family stepped out for Louis's special day, and their royal fashion prompted plenty of comments on Yahoo Entertainment.

At this point, it's safe to say that Kate Middleton has definitely noticed that Meghan Markle is giving her a good run for her money, at least when it comes to media attention.

Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is the younger brother to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 3.

The youngsters stole the show, with Charlotte - who was dressed in a blue dress - sticking her tongue out and waving her arms around.

Per the official royal website, "Following the service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give a private tea at Clarence House".
