Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh attended a traditional Easter Service on Sunday 8 April 2012 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
The Queen and her husband were joined by other senior Members of the Royal Family including Princess Anne and her husband Tim Laurence, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Two of the Queen’s granddaughters – Princess Eugenie and Lady Louise Windsor – were also amongst the three generations of Royals to attend the service.
The Easter Matins Service, which was conducted by the Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner, was said to include The National Anthem and the hymn, Thine Be The Glory.
After the service The Queen, who was elegantly dressed in a pale lilac-pink coat and matching hat with light-green feather, was greeted by well-wishers. Her Majesty was presented with bouquets of beautiful spring flowers, which her youngest granddaughter, Lady Louise Windsor, helped to carry.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were amongst those senior Royal who did not attend the Royal Family Easter Day Service.
