Despite the dreary weather and lack of umbrella, the monarch, 92, beamed as she made her way inside for the RAF centenary event.
Her Majesty certainly has plenty to smile about. Last Friday she watched granddaughter Princess Eugenie marry Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle and this week her grandson Prince Harry, 34, announced he is expecting his first child with the Duchess of Sussex in the Spring of 2019.
The arrival of Harry and Meghan’s baby will make the Queen a great-grandmother for the eighth time.

The Queen is already great-grandmother to Peter Phillips’ daughters, Savannah, seven, and Isla, six; Zara Tindall’s daughters, Mia, four, and three-month-old Lena; and Prince William’s three children, Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and five-month-old Prince Louis.
The Queen, a proud supporter of the military forces, was invited to the Royal Air Force Club for an event marking its 100th anniversary.
It is the latest in a string of celebrations that are being held throughout the year to mark the milestone.
It was drizzling as the Queen pulled up at the Piccadilly members’ club, but she happily strode up the steps and inside without the need of an umbrella.
