Just one day after attending the christening of Prince Louis, the royal family was out and about again to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Royal Air Force. Besides the Abbey service and the flypast, she was scheduled to take the Royal Salute, present a new Queen's Colour to the RAF at a ceremony on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace, and then make a brief speech.

It's been reported that, now she's married to Prince Harry, Meghan has to adhere to a series of royal clothing decrees - first and foremost that tights should be worn at all events.

After the service, Kate Middleton and Prince William hosted a private tea at Clarence House.
