Kate Middleton catches Prince William having a giggle during today's RAF celebration

The Queen, 92, was due to be travelling back from Norfolk at the start of a busy week, which includes high-profile celebrations marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday and a visit by U.S. president Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

Attending the service included: Prince Charles, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Edward, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Prince Andrew, The Princess Royal, Princess Anne and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

The Queen looked well after skipping Prince Louis's Christening on Monday, following a busy week in Scotland last week. The 70-year-old wife of Prince Charles stunned as she headed in to Westminster Abbey in a white cocktail-style dress which boasted 3/4 length sleeves and voluminous applique pockets.

The newlyweds greeted the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, ahead of the christening service and Meghan, who shot to fame as Rachel Zane in legal drama Suits, was caught on camera giggling as she greeted the man who officiated her wedding in May.

Thai Cave Rescue: Divers Make Final Push to Save Remaining Boys, Coach
Four of the trapped Thai cave boys were rescued over the weekend, and on Monday, four more were transported to the hospital. The chief the rescue mission said they are being kept apart from relatives because of infection concerns, Reuters reports.

During the event, one hundred RAF aircraft will fly across England to celebrate the Royal Air Force's 100th anniversary. Prince William formerly served as an RAF search and rescue pilot, while Prince Harry received helicopter training from the RAF during his time in the Army Air Corps. Instead eyes quickly moved from the sleeping prince to the outfits of both the Duchess of Cambridge and his aunt, Meghan Markle.

While Megan, the now Duchess of Sussex opted for a black fitted Givenchy dress, channelling her inner Audrey Hepburn.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the service before they jet off to Ireland for their first official foreign tour since their wedding.

While this is a meaningful day for Will and Kate's third child, July 9 already marks a memorable date for the Royal clan: It was on this day in 1947 that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip announced their engagement, and posed for photos at Buckingham Palace.
