Members of the Royal Family walked down to St George’s Chapel for the Easter Matins service from the Upper Ward of Windsor Castle, where the private apartments are.

Princess Anne and Sir Tim led the Royals down, and could be seen waiting at the chapel door as The Queen arrived, in a jovial mint green and pink outfit.

Prince Charles and Camilla were absent; they usually head to Birkhall for Easter.

Those who hadn’t already seen The Queen this morning curtsied and bowed, making it clear Prince William had already spent time with his grandmother today, as had Prince Andrew and Princess Beatrice.
