The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team joined their French counterpart, the Patrouille de France, in the skies over the French capital yesterday (September 20) as King Charles III and President Macron laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier.

In a reminder of the close ties between the allies, the combined air wing streamed out red, white and blue smoke across the sky - the colours of both countries.

President Macron and King Charles stood below, at the Arc de Triomphe, honouring the unknown soldier who fell in World War One.
