Kate Middleton Flashes Charming Smile as She Joins the Queen for Church Services in Scotland
Judging by the huge smile on Duchess Kate’s face, she seems to be enjoying the time she’s spent in Scotland. She was photographed on Sunday morning while traveling with the Queen.
Over the weekend, Duchess Kate and Prince William, both 37, were seen accompanying Queen Elizabeth II, 93, to church services near her summer estate in Scotland. The couple’s children, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, didn’t seem present for the occasion.
The Cambridges flew to Scotland on a budget flight last week to join the Queen and Prince Philip. It’s commonplace for the Queen to host her family members at Balmoral Castle at the end of the summer.

On Sunday, the Cambridge parents were seen traveling with the monarch to Crathie Kirk church. William sat in the front seat of the Royal Bentley which was driven by a chauffeur.
His wife and grandmother all sat together in the back. Duchess Kate wore a navy double-breasted herringbone coat which featured gold button detailing.

Underneath she wore a green peacock-patterned Michael Kors shirt dress. She accessorized with gold hoop Asprey Oak Leaf earrings and wore her hair in a bun with a navy fascinator on top.
The Queen was dressed in a fuchsia jacket with a matching hat that featured silver design. The monarch added a pink floral dress, strings of pearls, and a butterfly brooch to complete her look.

The Royals were seen laughing and smiling as they made their way. They waved at hundreds of well-wishers who lined the streets hoping to catch a glimpse of them.
Prince Charles, 70, and his wife Duchess Camilla, 72, also attended the services and were first to arrive. The Queen and her party arrived shortly after.

Prince Edward and his wife, Countess Sophie, 54, and their daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, 15, also attended the services. Also present was Peter Phillips and his wife, Autumn, both 41, and Princess Anne, 69, and her husband, Tim Laurence, 64.
It’s believed they will join the Royal family later in Scotland.
On Thursday morning, the Cambridges traveled to Norwich to catch a FlyBe budget flight to Aberdeen. Accompanying them was the children’s nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.
The tickets for the flight were estimated at $101 each for the flight.
