The Queen and members of The Royal Family have arrived at Church to mark the Easter Sunday celebrations. This year’s festivities are particularly special as Her Majesty is also celebrating her 93rd birthday. Dressed in matching teal coat and hat, the 93-year-old Monarch greeted members of her family outside of the church before walking inside for the start of the service. Amongst the first royals to arrive at church were The Princess Royal and Sir Tim Laurence. They were followed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Duke of York & Princess Beatrice. Also present was the Duke of Sussex who arrived at the service alongside his cousins, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips. The Duchess of Sussex didn’t attend the service at St George’s Chapel because she is expecting her first child any day. Celebrations are taking place across the country over the next couple of days to mark The Queen’s 93rd birthday. At Buckingham Palace, the Band of the Irish Guards will perform a rendition of Happy Birthday during the Changing of the Guard ceremony. Gun Salutes never take place on a Sunday. As such, the mark of respect has been postponed by a day. On Monday, the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery will stage a 41 Gun Royal Salute at noon in Hyde Park. A further 62-gun salute will also be performed by the Honourable Artillery Company at the Tower of London at 1pm.
