We would guess that being a member of the Royal Family means that you have to act a certain way - even the kids can't make any mistakes because all eyes are on them.

"I'm sure she is leading on building all the family relations".

The 36-year-old stood to The Queen's left hand side and slightly behind her, as senior members of the royal family watched an historic fly-past on Tuesday afternoon to celebrate 100 years of the RAF. And, she will be hosting President Donald Trump this Friday at Windsor Castle.

Just one day after attending the christening of Prince Louis, Kate Middleton and Prince William, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were pictured arriving for a service to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force at Westminster Abbey in central London.

A service at Westminster Abbey was followed by a spectacular flypast over Buckingham Palace that saw around 100 aircraft taking part.

This was the first time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out with all three children.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby welcomed the royals at the entrance to the chapel.

Following the 40-minute service, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gave a private tea at Clarence House.

Another well-known name to appear on the list of godparents includes Guy Pelly, who is the owner of the London nightclub Tonteria.

Europe Correspondent Joy Reid looks at the history behind the Prince Louis' name. The Duchess of Cambridge looked lovely in a white dress holding Prince Louis, who was swathed in the same historic gown his siblings wore for their christening ceremonies.

Other notable guests there to toast Prince Louis were Prince Charles and Camilla, Kate's parents Carole and Michael Middleton, her sister Pippa and her husband James Matthews, and hot bearded Middleton brother James.

Prince Harry has paid around $10,000 for a first edition "Winnie-the-Pooh" for nephew Louis' christening.

Meade is the wife of James Meade, who is not only another Eton friend of William's, but is also the godfather to Princess Charlotte, according to the Daily Mail.
