The monarch, 92, has a busy week ahead, with high-profile celebrations in central London marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday, and a visit by US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday.

The Duke of Sussex, 33, forked out a whopping $14,000 on a present for his three-month-old nephew Prince Louis, who was christened at the Chapel Royal in St James's Palace on Monday.
