The royal couple will visit many of Dublin's top sites July 10, 2018 - 15:27 BST Chloe Best Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are on a two-day visit to Dublin, Ireland.

Queen Elizabeth watched on today as nearly 100 aircraft flew over Buckingham Palace in a celebration to mark the 100th anniversary of Britain's Royal Air Force.

With three royal engagements in a single day, it's no wonder Meghan Markle has made an equal amount of outfit swaps.

Earlier on Tuesday, the pair attended a service at Westminster Abbey to mark the centenary for the Royal Air Force (RAF), which included a flypast of around 100 aircraft.

Meghan Markle changed for the third time today as she swapped her elegant forest green Givenchy ensemble for a sleek black square-neck belted midi by London-based designer Emilia Wickstead, a favorite of Kate Middleton, for a reception at the British Ambassador's official residence in Dublin, Ireland, on Tuesday.

The first F-35 B Lightning stealth aircraft piloted by Wing Commnder John Butcher touches down at RAF Marham.

She paired the look with nude heels and a clutch.

"This look also shows the neckline of her dress beautifully; she clearly likes the combination of a bateau neckline, a fascinator and an up "do".

Prince Louis gained six new godparents during his christening at St James's Palace yesterday, with the service containing two lessons, two hymns and two anthems.

Kate opted for a mint Alexander McQueen coat dress with a matching hat by Sean Barrett as well as a diamond and ruby Darce brooch, a high honour from the Air Cadets.

Meetings with The President of Ireland, Michael Higgins, and with The Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, are both planned.

On Monday, the were all together for Prince Louis's christening, and now this.

This year marks the centenary of the Royal Air Force - the world's first independent air force - which was founded on 1 April 1918, independent of the British Army and Royal Navy.
