I love the Queen being so smiley! She seems to be so happy all the time, that's great to see.

I don't think they have Empress. All I could find is some pictures of HM attending Maundy service in Northern Ireland on March 20th:

How very strange. I don't think that the Queen has ever missed Easter Sunday service. I also can't quite remember where it is that they go, but I do know that they go.

Perhaps that the "Maundy service" replaced the traditional Easter celebration ... .

From : Queen prepares Easter in Northern Ireland first - Yahoo! News
Quote:
In the so-called Maundy service, an Easter ceremony dating back to the 12th century, the 81-year-old monarch handed out specially-minted coins worth the equivalent of her age to hand-picked subjects.

The Queen almost always attends Easter Sunday Church at Windsor. Here is the first link I've found for todays:

Queen wraps up for Easter service - Crawley Observer

Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday are two very important Services that HM steadfastly attends.

Royal Maundy is held the Thursday before Easter and it does not replace the tradition Easter Church Service. This year, like most years, The Queen and the Royal Family have attended Easter Service at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The Queen is pretty in pink to celebrate Easter at Windsor

Found some pictures of the family. The Queen seems ready for spring to come in that cotton candy pink outfit. I don't recall seeing her in that color before - nice.

Holy week actually started on Monday 17 March - which is the Monday after Palm Sunday

Charles & Camilla conspicous by their absence. Does anybody know where they might have spent Easter?

If you look in the Charles thread, you will find he was on a much publicised visit to Klosters. Camilla probably spent the holiday with her family.

I do not think the Welsh have been to Easter in Windsor much like they did before. I can not recall seeing them at Easter Church Service in Windsor for such a long time, mostly they can be up in the North i think.
