It’s a very royal Easter as Duchess Catherine curtsies to The Queen

The British Royal Family step out for an Easter Sunday Service in Windsor.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine

In a display of respect, Duchess Catherine curtsied to Her Majesty The Queen as she arrived to kick off an Easter church Service in Windsor on Sunday.

Passing her grandchildren on her way into St George’s Chapel, Kate elegantly slipped one leg behind the other in a swift bob while grandson William bowed his head with a loving smile on his face.

Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie bring on the spring in neutral hues.

The Duchess of Cambridge shone in a bright cream coat by go-to designer Catherine Walker, which she paired with a hat of the same colour that sat atop her neat chignon.

It’s said the 35-year-old always greets Britain’s longest-reigning monarch with this gesture, however it’s not usually performed in the public eye as it only occurs during the first time they meet in the day.

While Prince Harry opted out of the family commitments to spend the day with girlfriend Meghan Markle in her Toronto home, his place was assumed by granddaughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.

The young royals make their way to the service from Windsor Castle on foot.

Autumn Phillips leads the way in a striking, cobalt blue coat.

The sisters looked bright and summery in neutral hues as they chatted to Princess Anne’s daughter-in-law, Autumn Phillips.

But the title of best dressed undoubtedly fell to The Queen herself, who lit up the day of celebrations in perhaps one of her brightest ensembles yet.

In a turquoise coat and skirt, Elizabeth waved to royal onlookers before accepting a colourful bouquet from children in attendance.

Smiling as he watched on was husband Prince Philip, who looked to be in good spirits after falling ill earlier in the year.

The royal commanded all eyes in a bright blue coat with matching hat and contrast black gloves.

Prince Philip, 95, followed in a dapper suit.

Also in attendance was Prince Edward and his wife Sophie the Countess of Wessex who made a family day of the occasion by bringing along son James and daughter Lady Louise Windsor, 13.

The Queen’s youngest granddaughter has grown to be a stunning young lady after stealing the hearts of many playing the role of flower girl at Wills and Kate’s 2011 wedding.

Now 13, the stunning young brunette has grown up right before our eyes!

It’s been a busy time for the parents of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, but the family of four sure won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

Next month, they’ll attend Kate’s sister Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews, where both George and Charlotte have starring roles.

While their parents put on a loved-up display, Prince George and Princess Charlotte no doubt spent the festive day hunting for eggs!
