The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrive late to Easter Church Service

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived late to the traditional Easter Day Church Service at Windsor Castle this morning.

The couple, who arrived by car, did not arrive at St George’s Chapel until after the other members of The Royal Family had already taken their seats, including The Queen.

The reason for the delay is unclear, although it against protocol for anybody to arrive after The Queen.

Her Majesty arrived at the castle a few minutes before William and Catherine.

Dressed in bright pink, she greeted members of her family outside of the church before walking inside for the start of the service.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived after The Queen had greeted members of the family, and went inside alone.

The first royals to arrive at church were The Princess Royal and Sir Tim Laurence. They were followed by Princess Eugenie & Jack Brooksbank, Peter & Autumn Philips, the Wessex family, Zara and Princess Beatrice who walked to the chapel together from Windsor Castle.

The Duke of Edinburgh has been forced to pull out of attending the service. He was suffering from a hip problem last week, and it is likely that he has still not fully recovered.

Absent from the church service were Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Both Harry & Meghan and Eugenie and Jack will marry at St George’s Chapel later this year. The Queen’s grandson will marry his American fiancee in May, whereas The Queen’s granddaughter will marry her long time partner in October.
