This is what Meghan Markle wore to her first royal christening

Meghan, who is the newest in-law to be welcomed into the Royal family, may well have been hoping to score some extra brownie points with her clever choice of outfit colour.

The Duchess of Cambridge delighted fans as she joined the royal family at Westminster Abbey on Tuesday morning.

Noticeably absent from the event were Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who were reportedly unable to attend the christening due to scheduling conflicts. Five years ago, Prince George was christened there, and before her wedding day in April 2011, the Duchess of Cambridge received her first communion there when she was confirmed to the Church of England. The 70-year-old wife of Prince Charles stunned as she headed in to Westminster Abbey in a white cocktail-style dress which boasted 3/4 length sleeves and voluminous applique pockets.

The "Fab Four" were also there, arriving together with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in one auto, followed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. One day you're shaking hands with the Archbishop of Canterbury at Prince Louis's christening, the next you're staring up at the sky for another jet fly-past over Buckingham Palace.

Inside the Abbey, Prince Harry was spotted cracking a joke with Prince Andrew as the Duchess of Sussex beamed at her husband as she attempted to contain her laughter. They will attend a commemorative service, followed by a flypast including up to 100 aircraft.

Prince William served a stint in the RAF Search and Rescue service in North Wales, and Prince Harry also briefly took part at RAF Shawbury.

While Megan, the now Duchess of Sussex opted for a black fitted Givenchy dress, channelling her inner Audrey Hepburn.

Prince Charles sat up on the stage beside The Queen and Sir Stephen Hillier, Chief of the Air Force, while Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry, Meghan, Prince Edward and Sophie all sat in the front row beside the stage.
