The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of York, Princess Beatrice of York, Princess Eugenie of York, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and The Lady Louise Windsor attended a traditional Easter service at St George’s Chapel this morning at around 11am.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were not present also at today’s service. Traditionally, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall rarely attend and spend the day in private at either Clarence House or Highgrove; along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who also haven’t attended the service for the past few years.
The Press were invited to the Lower Ward of Windsor Castle this year to photograph the traditional church appearance, the only public appearance of Easter for Her Majesty and most members of the Royal Family.
The Queen was present, as usual, for what is known as ‘the Matins service’ at St George’s Chapel,which was conducted by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Rev David Conner.
Members of the public also gathered outside to see The Queen and the Royal Family.
No royal engagements are planned now until Tuesday 2nd April, when HRH The Duke of Edinburgh will attend the Cambridge Conservation Initiative Launch at the University of Cambridge.
