Kate Middleton attended Easter service with royal family this morning in Windsor and was photographed arriving and leaving St. George’s Chapel. Today is the Queen’s birthday, and on the way out, Kate did have a moment with Queen Elizabeth II. Kate was photographed doing a perfect curtsy to the Queen with a smile:
The Duchess of Cambridge chose a very spring-appropriate outfit for the service, wearing a light blue coat dress with a matching fascinator. She and Prince William arrived at St. George’s Chapel alongside each other for church.
Her children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis were not with the couple.
This marks the first time Kate has been shot out in nearly month. The Duchess of Cambridge’s last event was on March 28 when she visited Gilwell Park. Her next event will be this Thursday when she attends the Anzac Day Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.
Meghan Markle did not join Kate this morning at service, though it’s hardly surprising. The Duchess of Sussex is due any day with her and Prince Harry’s first child. Entertainment Tonight was told by a royal source on Friday that Meghan’s attendance at Easter service was very much a “wait and see” thing. In these final days before Baby Sussex’s birth, Meghan has been “enjoying her pregnancy and anticipating the days ahead. It is such a happy and exciting time,” the source said.
This time last year, Kate was days away from giving birth to Prince Louis. Her youngest son will turn one year old this Tuesday, on April 23. As Easter was much earlier in 2018 (on April 1), Kate was photographed at Easter service with her husband Prince William. Kate wore a dark coat with big pearl earrings, a brown hat, and a matching brooch then.
