Harry hasn't attended an Easter service for years. There is no reason why he should start now.

William and Kate only started attending last year for some reason.

Charles and Camilla always spend Easter in Scotland - and sometimes there is coverage of them going to church there but not always. They are also preparing for their trip to Australia this week.

I thought we would have seen Harry and Meghan since she has just been baptized etc.

They may be away somewhere, they are so good at moving around under radar she could be in the US even.

I thought the same. Such a big deal was made out of Meghan’s new found Christian faith. I thought for sure she’d want to spend it with The Queen.

(The Fail called Jack Eugenie's boyfriend.) Will and Kate showing up to the church after the queen arrives? I hope it was car trouble because this doesn't look cool.
The Cambridge’s arrived after The Queen due to traffic. They’re with the Middleton family this weekend.

Thanks for the link. I noticed in the DM video everyone curtseyed except Princess Beatrice and The Princess Royal.
Any particular reason?

Anne looked perturbed about something, possibly the fact the Cambridge's weren't there?

I don't believe it was due to traffic, they would surely have allowed plenty of time to arrive at the Castle ahead of the church service especially if travelling from relatively far and I doubt they would use that car for travelling from the Middleton house to Windsor.

Its not a big issue but I wouldn't be at all surprised if the media and twittershere have something to say about it!

Unforeseen things happen. When Harry and Meghan visited Wales they were an hour late because of train delays. Sometimes a delay is just a delay.

Funny people trying to make this into a constitutional issue. At least The Cambridges attended.

Some pick and chose what "protocols" they want to focus on. The Cambridges being late and walking in after The Queen is a bad look no way around it. That said it isn't the end of the world.

Everyone looked nice but really liked Kate, Zara, Autumn and Beatrice's looks. Surprised that Zara attended! Nice to also see Jack with Eugenie.

Not sure how it’s a bad look unless you’re saying they arrived late on purpose. I can’t recall them ever being late for an engagement before.

Like I said, at least they made the effort to be there.

Meghan being just baptized , would have been really nice to see her at her "first" service.
Oh well ...

Happy Easter to all Forum members !
As far as I can tell nobody said/suggested it was, but the change in tradition started with her. I’m really glad Eugenie’s fiancé got to attend.

That's a pretty standard "waiting" face for Anne. I would not read anything into it.

Nope, Sophie was present at several family/official occasions way before her marriage to Edward in 1999.
It's a nice touch anyway.

Perhaps, they have seen the queen before the church service.

Who is the person standing next to Lady Louise at the end of the line outside church? Anyone know?

Nope, the attendance at Sandringham definitely began with Meghan. Before then no other fiancé/fiancée had ever attended Christmas service with the royal family.

All right fair enough others did attend public family events before Meghan but I’m not sure they were classified as ‘official’ royal family events like the recent commonwealth service? Not even sure I’m making any sense here

I thought we were talking about "public family events".
In that case, and not the Christmas Service in particular, Sophie attended several family events prior to her marriage, including Trooping the Colour, not less ...
But again, that's a really nice "tradition".

The Cambridge royal wedding was certainly an official royal event and Mike Tindall was there right next to Zara.

Sophie did attend official events. She was at the decommissioning of HMS Britannia if I’m not mistaken.

Nothing new.

She used to attend church services in other places way before her conversion to the Anglican faith and baptism. Anglicanism is not the only christian faith, you know. And I don’t believe you have to stick to a particular denomination or be baptised before you can be considered a christian.

Anyway the Queen was as graceful and magnificent as ever today

No one is making this an issue as I’m sure no one is going out of their way to be snide about H&M on here. Posters just wondering and having a discussion is all and I read all the time that Harry is constitutionally irrelevant so I’m not sure his absence at events count in comparison to the Cambridges.
