UK’s Queen Elizabeth II Attends Celebrations Marking RAF’s 100 Years

LONDON – The United Kingdom’s Queen Elizabeth II attended on Tuesday celebrations to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force.

The RAF, founded in 1918, officially turned 100 years old on April 1, but on Tuesday London held commemorative events involving over 1,300 air force members, while about 100 airplanes took to the skies over the capital.

The monarch was accompanied by other members of the royal family as crowds gathered near Buckingham Palace to watch a military flyover involving aircraft from different times in the RAF’s history.

Prior to that, the queen attended a special service at Westminster Abbey, along with her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; and Prince William and his new wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.

Prime Minister Theresa May, Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson and leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn also attended the service.

The RAF has been an important part of the British military since its inception, playing a significant role in World War II and in other conflicts thereafter.
