Dublin welcomes Duke and Duchess of Sussex on first overseas trip

The day after the christening of Prince William and Kate Middleton's third child, Prince Louis, the proud parents, accompanied by Prince Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle, attended the 100th birthday celebrations of the Royal Air Force.

The royal couple also named six close friends and family members to be godparents to Prince Louis, who was born in April.

According to Kensington Palace, Prince Louis wore a handmade replica of the Royal Christening Robe, which was made in 1841 and was used for christening Queen Victoria's eldest daughter.

After telling the photographers that they were not coming with the royal family to Prince Louis' christening, she continued to give them a stare-down as she walked away.

The Duchess of Cambridge appeared to make a special gesture to involve her tragic mother-in-law in her grandson's christening.

Afterward, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a tea party at Clarence House and served a portion of their wedding cake that they had saved since 2011. Later that afternoon, they jetted off on a plane to Dublin for a two-day tour of Ireland - their first overseas engagement as a married couple.

The 36-year-old brunette joined the rest of the royal family on the palace balcony, her second appearance there following Trooping the Colour in June.

Also in attendance was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Following the service at Westminster, a royal flypast took place over Buckingham Palace.

George, four, and three-year-old Charlotte held William's hand, as a sleeping Louis was carried into the chapel by Kate.

But big sister Princess Charlotte, being the natural scene stealer she is, still managed to nab the spotlight-even if only for a moment.

The Duchess of Sussex, who traveled to Dublin Tuesday evening with Prince Harry, paired the dark navy dress with a matching fascinator by Stephen Jones, gold-and-diamond Cartier earrings, and, like her sister-in-law, nude pumps.

He was set to wear the same gown worn by his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

There for the ceremony were Louis's grandfather the Prince of Wales, step-grandmother the Duchess of Cornwall and maternal grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton.

Prince Louis is fifth in line to the throne.
