Royals join RAF celebrations at Westminster Abbey

Diana's favourite flower was the white rose, leading observers to think Kate was making a subtle tribute to her.

Meghan wore a long-sleeved, full-skirted black Dior dress with a bateau neckline, topped off with a Stephen Jones fascinator.

Prior to the event, Kensington Palace released the names of Louis' godparents: Nicholas van Cutsem, Guy Pelly, Harry Aubrey-Fletcher and the Lady Laura Meade, as well as Mrs. Robert Carter (or Hannah Gillingham, Middleton's college friend) and Lucy Middleton (the duchess' cousin). When Walter Cullen, 3, met Meghan and Prince Harry during their visit to Dublin this week, the little boy reached out to touch the Duchess of Sussex's brunette locks before clasping his palm to his mouth in disbelief.

Middleton has definitely found her signature piece, proving one can wear a tried-and-true staple over and over again. Kate Middleton went with an icy blue dress by her go-to designer, Alexander McQueen, and a hat by Sean Barrett.

Louis officially became part of the Church of England alongside his doting family, including Kate Middleton and Prince William, but he had plenty of other royal guests-and it made for the most awesome of photo ops.

The official Sussex itinerary in Ireland includes parties, sports, meetings with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar and President Michael Higgins, and visits to see the historic Book of Kells in Trinity College's famed Old Library, to pay respects at the nearby memorial to the Irish Famine and to explore the Irish Emigration Museum.

The Duke and Duchess, who marked their first outing as a family of five with Louis' christening, looked happy and relaxed as they attended the service.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex joined Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Queen Elizabeth, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla at the RAF Centenary where they all attended a Royal Air Force Westminster Abbey service.
