Meghan Markle's missing brooch: Kate Middleton, others have brooch at RAF Centenary

Meghan Markle's missing brooch: Kate Middleton, others have brooch at RAF Centenary

According the royal family's official website, today's christening at the Royal Chapel at St. James's Palace was followed by a private tea at Clarence House, the royal residence of Prince Charles and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall. (Picture: Getty) Heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, his son Prince William and wife Kate, and Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, all joined the queen on the palace balcony for the display.

The Royal Family and Queen Elizabeth II stood on the palace balcony, looking up at the spectacle.

Her hat, by Jane Taylor, was a headband-style piece with floral accents, and completed the elegant look.

They include Kate's cousin Lucy Middleton, Nicholas van Cutsem, whose daughter was a bridesmaid at May's wedding of Harry and Meghan, and Guy Pelly, a childhood friend of William's.

The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a demure, belted black dress from Dior with her favored boatneck neckline and a wild, Stephen Jones fascinator that she makes look chic.




It's expected that the former actress will receive an honour in time, as her husband Prince Harry served in the British Armed Forced for 10 years. Earlier in the day, the Queen had congratulated the RAF for its "remarkable contribution to defence" over the past 100 years and presented a new Queen's Colour to the air force to mark the occasion.

Later today, Meghan and Harry will fly to Dublin where they'll spend the next two days.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive at the Westminster Abbey service.

The celebrations Tuesday marked the second event in a busy week for Britain's royals, following Monday's christening and ahead of the Queen's meeting with US President Donald Trump at Windsor Castle on Friday.

Despite still being officially on maternity leave, Catherine attended the service as she is the Patron of the RAF Air Cadets, which was her first official Royal military appointment, taking over from the Duke of Edinburgh in 2015. The Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service merged to create the RAF on 1 April 1918 - the world's first independent air force.
