On Sunday 1 April, the royal family were out in full force to attend the annual Easter day church service at St George's Chapel in Windsor – the very place Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be getting married in next month. Those present included the Queen, Prince William, Kate, Princess Anne and Zara Tindall, who dressed her growing baby bump in an electric blue coat, while Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank – who will also tie the knot at the same church in October – arrived hand-in-hand.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived to the service slightly later than everyone else, getting to the chapel just after the scheduled 10.45am start time. The pair were driven in a car, with Kate now on maternity leave. Those missing included the Duke of Edinburgh, who is thought to have been experiencing some troubles with his hip. Harry and Meghan were also elsewhere – with Kensington Palace describing their weekend plans as "private".
