While there is no expectation for royals to join the monarch for the Easter service, many often chose to do so.

And it is Sophie and Edward who have the longest current streak of attendance.

The couple have been to the Easter worship for 12 consecutive years, Gert's Royals reports, followed by Peter Phillips, who has been going for seven straight years.
