There’s nothing like spending Easter morning in a Castle! Kate Middleton and Prince William delighted onlookers this weekend by attending Easter Sunday service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The Duchess of Cambridge was seen flaunting a perfect curtsey as she greeted Queen Elizabeth, who was also in attendance for the holiday mass. Prince William showed respect to the monarch by bowing his head to her. According to royal etiquette, these signs of welcome mean it was most likely the first time in the day that the couple saw the Queen, who wore a lovely turquoise ensemble.

Kate curtseyed in style, dawning a stunning outfit. The princess looked sophisticated in a cream coat by designer Catherine Walker, pairing it with matching heels and an elegant hat. Her hair was neatly tied back, showing off her understated yet striking earrings. The 35-year-old royal’s husband, the Duke of Cambridge, was also dressed smartly in a dark suit and tie. The popular royal couple looked extremely happy at the Easter celebration, as they spent the outing with their extended family.

A crowd was gathered outside the Chapel, clapping as the Queen and Prince Phillip entered through the Galilee Porch. Also in attendance were Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Prince Edward and his wife the Countess of Wessex along with their children Lady Louise Windsor and Viscount Severn. The Princess Royal and husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence also went to the service, as did Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn, who wore a bright blue coat.

Prince Harry was notably missing from the mass. The royal is believed to be spending Easter with his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle. William and Kate’s children, three-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte were not in attendance at the Sunday mass. The siblings were more than likely enjoying chocolate Easter eggs at home. Earlier this month it was announced that Prince George and Princess Charlotte would play vital roles in their aunt Pippa Middleton’s upcoming wedding to James Matthews in May. George will be a page boy (or young male attendant), while Charlotte is to be a bridesmaid.

Another busy month looms ahead of William and Kate. The couple and Prince Harry are set to attend this year’s London Marathon to show their support for the runners. The royal trio’s mental health campaign Heads Together has been named this year's “charity of the year” for the marathon. The royals are hoping that 2017's event will be recognized as “the mental health marathon” and that it gets the country talking about the issue. In the lead-up to race day, William, Kate and Harry will attend various related events. On Wednesday, April 19, Kate will host Team Heads Together runners at Kensington Palace.
