Queen Elizabeth was absent on the christening of her great-grandchild, Louis. This made the royal fans worry about Her Majesty’s health.
Well, the good new is the 92 year-old reigning monarch is absolutely fit and fine.
The Queen may have missed Prince Louis’ christening yesterday, but she was back in action this morning. She attended a service at Westminster Abbey in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force (RAF).
This was just one of the events today surrounding the RAF centenary. Later on, she was seen on the Buckingham Palace balcony for a historic flyover continued by a reception in honour of the day.
The Queen kicked off the event with a vibrant attire.
Never one to shy away from colour, Her Majesty chose a vibrant coat and hat featuring two contrasting shades of blue. The RAF has close ties to the royal family. This includes Prince William serving as one of the pilots.

Earlier this year, Her Majesty wrote a ‘centenary message’ to the Royal Air Force. It read as:-

On this, the centenary of its formation, I send my heartfelt congratulations to the Royal Air Force at home and overseas. Also, to all of its families and loved ones.
The anniversary of the world’s first independent Air Force is of great significance. It is fitting to pay tribute to the tenacity, skill and sacrifice of the men and women who have served within its ranks over the last century.
Through its enduring focus on professionalism, excellence and innovation, the Royal Air Force stands as a shining example of inspiration around the world today and for the coming generations.
May the glory and honour that all ranks have bestowed on the Royal Air Force light its pathway to the future, guarding our skies and reaching for the stars.
According to one of our sources:-
Queen Elizabeth’s absence from Prince Louis’s baptism at St. James’s Palace was pre-planned.
“The decision was not made on health grounds. And, it is understood to have been mutually agreed by Her Majesty and the Cambridge’s some time ago”.
