The royal family stepped out in full force on Sunday for the Easter Mattins service at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.

The annual service is an important fixture in the royal family's calendar. This year's service is particularly bittersweet seeing as it marks the first Easter service since Queen Elizabeth II's death.

While the King and the Queen have spent Easter at their Scottish residence, Birkhall, in the past, it is expected that they will host the royals in Windsor this year.

Sunday's Easter service comes after King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla attended the first Royal Maundy service of their reign. At York Minster, the monarch distributed commemorative coins, known as Maundy money, to 74 men and 74 women who have made a difference to their communities.
