Queen pays tribute to mark 100 years of Britain's Royal Air Force

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have touched down in Dublin for their two-day visit having coming straight from Kensington Palace where they celebrated 100 years of the RAF.

For royals, official visits offer the flawless opportunity to showcase either British fashion houses as a badge of honour, or as the case may be today, an opportunity to incorporate a local designer into your wardrobe.

The royal broke her maternity leave for the unexpected appearance on Tuesday, wearing tried-and-true favorite designer Alexander McQueen coupled with a matching fascinator.

"It's clearly a style that she feels comfortable with, which is so important when you're stepping out in front of the cameras".

Then again, it's possible that Wickstead didn't notice - and that Markle had other things on her mind; among them, lending support to her husband, as evidenced by her public displays of affection for him, including hand holding and arm linking - a rarity on Royal tours.

"Navy looks very smart and in it she can't go wrong". I do not think that her wedding dress was a copy of any of our designs.

United Kingdom prime minister fights to stop Cabinet exodus over Brexit
May was asked by an opposition lawmaker Monday whether she would contest a vote of confidence if one came rather than resign. May's government was rocked overnight by the resignations of Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis .

These include Operation Ruman - the UK's humanitarian assistance operation in the aftermath of hurricane Irma which hit the Caribbean in September 2017 - and the RAF's Quick Reaction Alert Typhoon Aircraft, providing a United Kingdom air defence capability 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Earlier the royals attended a service at Westminster Abbey along with dignitaries including Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and the defence secretary, Gavin Williamson.

A total of 17 royals flanked the Queen on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the RAF celebrations.

Harry, 33, a former captain in the British Army, and Meghan, 36, cheered the RAF just hours before they were scheduled to depart on Tuesday evening for Dublin, Ireland, for a 24-hour visit jam-packed with engagements, including an eagerly anticipated walkabout at Trinity College's Parliament Square on Wednesday.

The royal couple will meet both President Michael D Higgins and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar during their relatively short two-day trip.
