The Queen will be among members of the royal family attending a day of events to celebrate the RAF's centenary.

A trio of F-35B Lightning II aircraft of 617 Squadron taking part in the RAF100 flypast over London to mark the centenary of the RAF.

She recalled how her father, King George VI, was the first member of her family to qualify as an RAF pilot and served alongside the service's founder, Lord Trenchard.

Weather and serviceability dependent, it is expected the new cutting-edge stealth fighter F-35 jets will feature, as well as helicopters including the Puma, Chinook, Juno and Jupiter.

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

The Duchess of Cambridge made an appearance, despite still being on maternity leave after giving birth to Prince Louis only 11 weeks ago.

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

The queen, dressed in a royal blue outfit with turquoise edging, later hosted a ceremony to present the RAF with a new Queen's Colour, at which she recognised the service's work.

The royals will then appear on the balcony of the Queen's London residence to view a flypast of up to 100 RAF aircraft at 1pm, a parade of more than 1,000 personnel, and a feu de joie.

The centrepiece event of the Royal Air Force's 100th birthday takes place in London this morning, 100 days after the official birthday date of April 1.

Later on Tuesday, Charles, his wife Camilla, William, and brother Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, will host a reception at Buckingham Palace for RAF servicemen and women.

"We have done nine ships - which are the diamond nine - which is a relatively basic formation, but it is actually making something that big".
