The British royal family was the picture of Easter perfection on Sunday as they attended their annual Easter Sunday church service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

The group, including the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, and Prince Edward, each waited outside the church for the family’s matriarch, Queen Elizabeth II, to arrive.

In a rare public display, Duchess Kate curtseyed to the queen, while Prince William bowed his head to Her Majesty. According to etiquette rules, the Duchess must always curtsey to the Queen, but only at the first meeting of each day.

Duchess Kate’s outfit, a custom-made cream Catherine Walker coat, which she also wore during the Royal tour of Canada in 2016, was fitting for the sunny spring day. Kate added a few key accessories to the look including a satin cream hat, matching clutch, and pumps.

Meanwhile, the Queen went for a much more eye-catching ensemble, wearing a daringly bright teal coat with a matching hat adorned with pink flowers.

The Queen’s granddaughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, both looked equally spring-ready in cream-colored frocks, and as always accessorized with matching fascinators.

Noticeably absent from the day’s services was Prince Harry, who was spotted in Toronto prior to the holiday weekend. He is is believed to be spending Easter in Canada with his American girlfriend, Meghan Markle, according to People.

Kate and William’s two young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, also did not attend the Easter service, but will likely be spotted soon at Pippa Middleton’s upcoming May wedding.
