Members of the Royal Family attend Easter Day service

The Queen was joined by members of her family this morning as they attended the traditional Easter Day Service at Windsor Castle.

Dressed in bright turquoise coat and hat, the Queen made her way into the chapel alongside Prince Philip and the rest of her family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.: Prince Edward, Prince Andrew and Princess Anne.

The Queen’s children Pince Edward and Princess Anne were also at the service, alongside the Countess of Wessex, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor, Viscount Severn and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were absent from the ceremony last year as he was on holiday. The Duchess spent last year’s Easter at the Middleton family home in Berkshire.

Despite the rain and wind, crowds gathered outside of the chapel to get a glimpse of the Queen as she was greeted by the Dean of Windsor, Revd David Connor who presided over the Easter Mattins Service.

The Queen always spends Easter at Windsor Castle. She will also be in residence here when she celebrates her milestone 91st birthday on April 21.

Her official birthday will be celebrated with Trooping of the Colour in June.
