Prince Philip is joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at church

On Sunday morning, Prince Philip was joined by his grandson and his wife, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as they walked to church at St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham.

The 96-year-old took the brisk walk to the Sunday morning service while his wife, Queen Elizabeth opted to arrive via car.

The pregnant Duchess of Cambridge recycled a past maternity look in a long brown tweed coat by British designer Moloh, a Russian fur hat and brown gloves. She wore the same jacket nearly three years ago on Christmas Day while pregnant with her youngest child, Princess Charlotte

The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Matthews also joined with her husband, James Matthews. The two were wed in May with the help of Prince George and Princess Charlotte who took part in the wedding party.

Pippa and James live in London but were likely staying at Anmer Hall with the Cambridges.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s two children were missing from the church service and are assumed to have been at home.

Prince George will be heading back to school for the Winter Term on Tuesday at Thomas’s Battersea. The 4-year-old started at his new school in September once his family made the move from Anmer Hall to London full-time so Prince William and Kate could take on more royal duties.

Princess Charlotte is also expected to start her new nursery school at Willcocks either Monday or Tuesday. The Winter Term at Willcocks started last Thursday.

Upon the announcement slightly before Christmas that Princess Charlotte would be heading to school, the nursery released a statement reading: “We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte. We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January.”

It is expected that pictures of the young princess will be released when she does start. The Duchess of Cambridge shared personal photos she took of Prince George when he started nursery so it would be safe to assume she will follow suit this time around as well.
