The off-shoulder style has become part of her signature look, with the Duchess opting for elegant, simple outfits since becoming a member of the royal family.

More than 2,200 people packed Westminster Abbey for the service, with dignitaries including Prime Minister Theresa May, Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn attending. This was an opportunity to meet RAF veterans, serving personnel and their families. Prince William and Prince Harry were decked out in their military finest. She also wore the diamond and ruby RAF Dacre brooch, which was given to her in 2015.

Her Stephen Jones hat perfectly matched the colour of her dark navy dress, which is believed to have been designed especially for her.

After the service, the monarch, accompanied by Prince Charles, will present a new Queen's Colour to the RAF on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace and make a short speech. Lastly, the members of the Royal Family watched a presentation of the RAF 100 Relay, which had been carried throughout the United Kingdom for the last 100 days. When Walter Cullen, 3, met Meghan and Prince Harry during their visit to Dublin this week, the little boy reached out to touch the Duchess of Sussex's brunette locks before clasping his palm to his mouth in disbelief.

Case in point, the pale mint blue dress she donned on Tuesday for the Royal Air Force 100 ceremony in London.

Drawing the spectacle to a close will be the Red Arrows, who in traditional aerobatic style will stream red, white and blue smoke down the length of The Mall.
