Duchess of Cambridge pauses maternity leave for special celebration

It's a big day for the royal family. The royals were greeted at the abbey doors by the Dean and Chapter of Westminster, before taking their seats.

Today, Meghan chose a long-sleeved, A-line black dress by Dior (it had a boat neck very similar to her wedding gown), a Stephen Jones hat and nude high heels, continuing her preference for neutral colours, simple silhouettes and French designers.

It has also been noted that Kate's decision to wear white or cream at the christening of Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and now Prince Louis is due to the colours perfectly complementing the Royal christening gown, worn by all three children. Prince William and Prince Harry were decked out in their military finest.

Megan, the Duchess of Sussex has enjoyed her second ever appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony. Later, Meghan and Harry will head to Dublin to begin their two-day whirlwind trip of Ireland.

Royal watchers were equally excited to see the young royal couples - Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton - together again.

Led by the Queen, the royals were attending a service to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

On Monday, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out for Prince Louis' christening.

The RAF, described as the world's first independent air force, was founded on April 1, 1918 as an armed force independent of the British Army and the Royal Navy.

The queen, 92, front and center for the RAF events. Since Kate is on maternity leave, she wasn't expected to attend the event, though Westminster Abbey confirmed she would be there when they released the order of service on their Twitter account in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
