(Picture: Reuters) Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, arrive at Westminster Abbey for a service to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

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

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.

Queen Elizabeth and senior royals watched nearly 100 aircraft, from World War Two Spitfires to the newest stealth fighter jet fly over Buckingham Palace on Tuesday in a celebration to mark the 100th anniversary of Britain's Royal Air Force.

Some royal fans had expected to see Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex among the godparents, after she married William's younger brother, Prince Harry, in May, but she has not been included among the six.

Members of the Royal Family gathered with Queen Elizabeth to watch the spectacle from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

The two princes were dressed in their military garb, while Middleton wore Alexander McQueen and Markle donned a black Dior dress.

The event is a special one for Prince William too, who became a fourth generation RAF member and spent active duty as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.

The Queen spoke proudly not only as the RAF's Air Commodore-in-Chief, but also as a citizen who remembered the Battle of Britain, and as a daughter whose father King George VI served with the RAF. She paired the look with a gorgeous brooch, a matching Sean Barrett hat and nude heels.

Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip were not present at the ceremony after it was decided "some time ago" that they would not attend for unknown reasons which are not thought to be health related.

Markle stood with Prince Harry to the left of the Queen while watching the flypast above the palace. The Queen is scheduled to meet President Donald Trump later this week.

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