William and Kate announced the names of Louis' godparents on Monday morning, just hours before his christening at The Chapel Royal, St. James' Palace. For the occasion, Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress with a structured shoulder detail and a dramatic Jane Taylor headpiece fit for a princess.

Prince Louis will wear the handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, made by The Queen's dressmaker, Angela Kelly.

Louis was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby in a 40-minute service which started at 4 pm, and was attended by royals including William's brother Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

The former Suits star looked poised and confident as she joined the royal family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for the flypast. She finished the look with a black fascinator by Stephen Jones.

Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, Prince Louis, will be christened today, on 9 July, 2018.

Also attending the RAF Centenary event were Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle along with Prince Charles and Camilla.

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.

Ahead of the speech, the Queen presented a new flag, known as a "Colour" to the RAF Regiment.

The service will be followed by a fly-by at Buckingham Palace and another balcony appearance from the royal family.

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

The RAF was formed with the amalgamation of the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) and the Royal Naval Air Service (RNAS) on 1st April 1918.

It played a key role in defending the skies of Britain during WWII, when the queen was still a teen and her father, King George VI, was on the throne.

"Bringing together that big parade, the new colour and the flypast - this is going to be a tremendous day, and it is about commemorating all of our history, and it is about celebrating what we do today", he said.
