The British Royal family is all set to welcome two new members to its clan.


Metro reported that Kate Middleton and Zara Phillips, both expectant mothers, were seen at the traditional Easter Sunday Service on April 1, 2018.

Queen Elizabeth was joined by the Royal family including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the Easter Mattins Service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. 

It is the same venue where the Queen’s grandson, Prince Harry, will be wed in holy matrimony with Meghan Markel on May 19.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 96-year-old Prince Philip, did not attend the service. He bowed out of the service due to a hip problem.

Others to join the seasonal service were Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Peter Phillips.


Kate, who is due to give birth this month, was glowing in a tailored brown coat by Catherine Walker. The Duchess is known for recycling her favorite clothes and was last seen wearing the coat when she was a few weeks away from giving birth to Princess Charlotte.

This time around she accessorized it with a hat by Lock & Co., nude Gianvito Rossi pumps, a brooch by UFO, and Balenciaga earrings.

The Chelsea-based designer, Catherine Walker, is known for styling some important people such as Princess Diana and Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton. 


Zara Phillips showed off her blossoming bump in a blue bespoke Seraphine coat and hat by Jane Taylor. However, she arrived without husband Mike Tindall and daughter Mia Grace.

Princess Eugenie and fiance Jack Brooksbank were seen chatting with the expectant mother at the chapel’s entrance.

The entourage was led into the chapel by the Queen herself, who is set to celebrate her 92nd birthday later this month.  Hundreds of fans and well-wishers thronged the entrance to the Windsor Castle hoping to catch a glimpse of the Royals on their annual spring outing.


The next time the family meets at the church will be for the wedding of Harry and Markle, touted as the wedding of the year. Kensington Palace announced new details on the same day.

The statement said that Harry and Markle had chosen their flowers that will be provided by London-based florist Philippa Craddock. The flowers would be locally sourced, with many coming from the gardens and parkland of The Crown Estate and Windsor Great Park.
