Easter Sunday proved to be a very busy day for the Royal Family! The Queen and her grandchildren attend an Easter church service at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor. But some highly anticipated guests didn’t make it.
Princess Anne Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Prince Peter Phillips and his wife, Autumn, and expectant mother Zara excitedly greeted the Queen. The Queen arrived solo since her husband, Prince Philip, has been rather ill. She looked radiant on Easter Sunday in a fuschia hat and matching coat as she greeted her family.
While she had quite the bunch to greet her, she had noticed that some very famous faces were missing: the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children were nowhere to be seen! Her Majesty accepted their absence and entered the church.
Several minutes later, after the royal group had gone into the service, a car arrived carrying what many hoped would be the prestigious family of four (soon-to-be five!). Almost on cue, Kate and William exited the car and greeted the welcomers outside of the church as the car drove off.
While the crowd was glad to see the Duke and Duchess, they couldn’t help but wonder where their cheeky little ones were… Were they arriving in a separate car? Were they coming at all? Where they home sick with their nanny?
After a couple moments of interaction outside, William and Kate entered the church to be with the rest of the family. The crowd, although thrilled to see the Duke and Duchess, couldn’t help but wonder where Prince George and Princess Charlotte were…
The services ended and the royals all went the separate ways. Hours later, the mysterious whereabouts of the little royals were finally shared! As it turns out, Kate and William had spent most of Easter morning with the Middleton family. Prince George and Princess Charlotte were back with their grandparents, most likely running around with a sugar rush from all of their Easter candy. Kate and William were late because they had gotten stuck in traffic on the way to the service.
After the service, Kate and William returned back to their children where they spent the day as a family. The kids were probably much more excited to spend the morning playing and being silly than attending a long church service. They are kiddos, after all!
This will be the last major holiday before Royal Baby #3 arrives. He or she is set to arrive in late April. We are sure the family is beyond thrilled to meet their newest little one.
