Royal family attends first Easter service since Queen Elizabeth’s death

King Charles III and the royal family attended their first Easter service since the passing of Queen Elizabeth II last year.

The extended family were seen walking to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on Sunday to celebrate the holiday.

The soon to be coronated King Charles was accompanied by Queen Consort Camila, both wearing blue, with Camila sporting a fascinator for the occasion.

Blue seemed to be the fashion order of the day for the Prince and Princess of Wales’ family as well, as Kate, William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis all wore coordinating outfits.
