Kate, William And Harry Join Other Royals For Easter Church Services
On Sunday, Members of the British Royal Family have joined together to celebrate Easter Sunday with a tradition church service, which coincided with the Queen’s 93rd birthday.
The Queen was joined by her nearest and dearest at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, the location of Harry and Meghan’s wedding, for the occasion.
Among the first ones to arrive at St George’s Chapel were Prince William and Kate who looked to be in great spirits. However, their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, weren’t in attendance.
For the occasion Kate wore a baby blue coat, with a matching dress underneath, and accessorized the look with a hat and nude heels. Prince William opted for a blue suit and a tie.
The Duke of Sussex arrived solo wearing a navy suit and light blue tie, alongside his cousin Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn.
Prince Harry, who didn’t attend last year’s celebrations, is there along with Zara and Mike Tindall, Princess Anne and Princess Beatrice.
However, Meghan wasn’t the only royal who was missing. Charles and Camilla, weren’t there, they traditionally spend Easter in Scotland.
Prince Philip, Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank weren’t noticed at the Easter Church service.
Following royal protocol, Queen Elizabeth was the last to arrive at the chapel. The other royals had already lined up to welcome her, and all bowed or curtsied as she walked past.
The Queen, who is Head of the Church of England, looked lovely in a turquoise coat and matching hat.
Meanwhile, at Buckingham Palace, the Band of the Irish Guards will perform a rendition of Happy Birthday in honour of her majesty.
This is the Queen’s first of two birthdays.
She also has an official one on the second Saturday in June each year. For her ‘official’ birthday’ in June, the day is marked publicly with a big parade in London called Trooping the Colour.
Gun salutes are also fired as a mark of respect to the Queen on her special day. However, Trooping the Colour never falls on a Sunday, so this year they will be delayed by one day.
