The Queen has praised the Royal Air Force for its "tenacity, skill and gallantry" as she was joined by senior members of the royal family at the centrepiece of centenary events.

"Her Majesty the Queen, who recently visited Chester, will attend a special service of thanks giving at Westminster Abbey and then watch the skies above Bucking Palace as they filled with up to 100 aircraft for the official fly-past".

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.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrive at the Westminster Abbey service.
