The Queen attended the traditional Easter service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor yesterday – but two members of the family were notably absent.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly spent the Bank Holiday weekend together – alone.
The lovebirds decided to have some downtime away from the public eye – and it’s likely that they took the opportunity to do some final wedding planning for their upcoming nuptials. With just over a month to go until the wedding of the year, we’re sure the young couple have got their hands full at the moment!
Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, have been constantly in the public eye in recent months, completing an impressive number of visits and engagements across the country. As a result, Meghan has emerged as a fashion icon, donning stylish coats, hats and gloves that sell out in just hours after photographs of her in them appear online. We’re not surprised that she and Harry seized the opportunity to take a breather.
Harry and Meghan weren’t the only ones who were absent from the service. Prince Philip was also a no show due to a hip problem.
Meanwhile, the rest of the family were out in full force. The Queen was joined for the service in Windsor by a heavily pregnant Kate and husband Prince William. Catherine played it safe in an elegant brown coat by one of her favourite designers, Catherine Walker. The Queen on the other hand, went for her trademark vibrant style, opting for a bright purple coat.
Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex joined them, along with their children, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.
The Queen’s granddaughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, were also present, sporting their usual statement hats.
Her majesty met with local children, who presented her with a beautiful bouquet of flowers to mark the occasion.
The next time the spotlight will be on St George’s Chapel is 19th May, when Harry and Meghan will wed there. The Chapel will also be where Princess Eugenie and longterm boyfriend James Brooksbank tie the knot in October.
