Prince George and Princess Charlotte have joined the rest of the royals at the Easter Sunday church service for the first time!
However, Prince Louis didn’t join his parents and siblings as he’s far too young, the youngest member of the Cambridge family will turn 4 this month.
Also missing from the service was Queen Elizabeth, Buckingham Palace confirmed that Her Majesty, who turns 96 next week, will not be attending the Easter Sunday church service.
The good news is that the Queen is staying nearby, specifically at her apartments in Windsor Castle, so hopefully, she will be getting some visitors following the service.
The little royals along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, all coordinated in blue outfits with Princess Charlotte’s floral dress and navy cardigan perfectly coordinating with the shade of her mom’s dress and headpiece and the gentlemen looking sharp in suits, attended the mass at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.
This outing is different from their previous way of marking Easter – Prince William and Kate Middleton have confirmed that George, Charlotte and Louis used to celebrate Easter with an egg hunt! Unfortunately, we don’t know if they still do.
The outing also doesn’t compare to when the family spent Easter Sunday at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo back in 2014 and young Prince George came face to face with a bilby, a rat-like marsupial which is also Australia’s version of the Easter bunny
Prince George also had a chance to practice his royal handshake while meeting one of the clergymen following the service.
This is the Cambridge kids’ first Easter church outing, but their parents have started bringing them to more and more royal events recently. Prince George and Princess Charlotte made their royal Christmas debut in 2019.
Just last month George and Charlotte joined the rest of the royal family at the Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey on March 29, held in honour of their great-grandfather Prince Philip who unfortunately passed last year at the age of 99.
