Harry's brother, William, The Duke of Cambridge, and his wife, Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge, were stood slightly in front of Harry and Meghan, along with The Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Royal and other family members.

Her father, Prince William, who walked hand-in-hand with his daughter and eldest son, Prince George, appeared to smirk at the remark.

Prince Louis was born on April 23, 2018, and on July 9, he was christened for the world to see. They also attended the christening service of Prince Louis at the Chapel Royal at St. James' Palace on Monday.

A photo shared by People showed Charlotte poking out her tongue while George could be seen next to her with his mouth agape.

And in keeping with the traditional blue of the RAF, the Queen wore a royal blue silk coat with a turquoise collar and dress in the same colour, both by Angela Kelly, with a matching hat by Angela Kelly and a diamond star brooch.

The service for Prince Louis was attended by guests including Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, and newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan.

Leaving the church with her family after the christening, the three-year-old looked up at the waiting paparazzi and told them that they weren't invited to the reception at Clarence House.

Queen Elizabeth watched on today as nearly 100 aircraft flew over Buckingham Palace in a celebration to mark the 100th anniversary of Britain's Royal Air Force.

Royal commentators have drawn comparisons between the two women ever since Kate and Prince William announced their engagement.

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).

Meghan seems to be getting along quite well with Harry's family.

Meghan, the new Duchess of Sussex, wore a dress by Dior and hat by royal milliner Stephen Jones.

The Red Arrows - one of the world's premier aerobatic display teams - were among 100 planes that took part in the RAF 100 Flypast, representing 100 years of the RAF.

Princess Charlotte walked alongside her dad and big brother Prince George, who had on a white shirt with blue piping and navy shorts.
