He is a close friend of both Prince William and Prince Harry - helping to organise the former's stag do - and was dubbed the pair's "court jester".

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry joined Queen Elizabeth and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge today to celebrate the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

If you thought Prince Louis' christening on Monday was all you were going to get from the Royal Family this week, you're in for an adorable surprise.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, left the chapel alongside the family.

The family first attended a service at Westminster Abbey, then moved on to Buckingham Palace, where they took in a fly-over by 100 aircraft.

They include Guy Pelly, once dubbed the "court jester" to William and Harry for his wild ways that were often cited as a bad influence on the brothers in their youth, running their favourite drinking haunts.

The Queen had a busy week last week in Sandringham, Norfolk, and she has another one ahead of her.

Jacob Rees-Mogg, who leads a bloc of Brexit-supporting Conservative MPs in Parliament, urged May to give up on the plan. Many Brexit campaigners in her Conservative Party say she has betrayed her promise to pursue a clean break with the EU.

The godparents included Hannah Carter, a school friend of the Duchess, and Lady Laura Meade, who is married to Prince William's friend and Princess Charlotte's godfather, James.

Two outfits in one day!

They will also visit a number of Dublin's main cultural attractions, including the Irish Emigration Museum, EPIC - where the Duchess will learn about her Irish ancestry.

Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge has been christened, marking his first public event since his birth on April 23.

Louis' big brother and sister Prince George (four) and Princess Charlotte (three) were, as usual, the stars of the show at The Chapel Royal in St James's Palace this afternoon for the celebrations.

The royal couple's youngest son was christened at the Chapel Royal at St. James's Palace - the same church where his brother Prince George was christened. The robe, which was handmade by Angela Kelly, the Queen's personal dressmaker, is a replica of the original christening gown designed for Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.

Looking radiant as she carried her third child, asleep in her arms while clad in his storied christening gown, the proud mom kept with her sartorial tradition as she turned up in a cream Alexander McQueen ensemble and a Jane Taylor headpiece. As after George and Charlotte's baptisms, guests will be served slices of the duke and duchess's wedding cake.
