Queen Elizabeth’s heartfelt tribute to father on RAF’s 100th anniversary

On Monday, the Duchess of Cambridge was glowing with joy as she cradled Prince Louis in her arms at the exclusive christening ceremony.

According to Kensington Palace, Prince Louis wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which was made in 1841 and was used for christening Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.

The 3-year-old looked angelic as she walked in holding hands with her dad, Prince William, and carrying what appeared to be a program for the church service.

Prince Louis, who was born on April 23rd 2018, is the youngest sibling to his brother, Prince George and sister, Prince Charlotte.

And Kate chose to wear a coat by Alexander McQueen, a hat by Sean Barrett, and an RAF Dacre Brooch.


The flypast drew thousands of spectators, passing over the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, and the streets of Central London before reaching The Mall, the ceremonial avenue leading up to Buckingham Palace.

Her appearance came one day after the monarch, 92, and her husband, Prince Philip, 97, missed the christening of their sixth great-grandchild, Prince Louis.

Speaking at Westminster Abbey, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, said the RAF had played a "decisive factor in saving this country's independence, its democracy and its freedom; its hope of civilization and its contribution to humanity for the future".

And despite still being on maternity leave, after giving birth to Prince Louis only 11 weeks ago, it is understood that Kate felt it was important to attend Tuesday's celebrations. An unnamed source told the publication that Prince Harry had initially planned to get Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-Glass, "on sale" for £24,000 (almost $32,000), but "decided Winnie-the-Pooh would be more suitable for a first tome".

Pelly is a longtime friend of both William and Kate, and he was the one who planned William's bachelor party.

The Duchess of Sussex looked stunning in a demure, belted black dress from Dior with her favored boatneck neckline and a wild, Stephen Jones fascinator that she makes look chic.
