Pregnant Kate Middleton, Prince William Join Queen Elizabeth For Easter Church Services

Share

The Duchess who is just weeks away from delivering her third child is on official maternity leave.

Kate Middleton and Zara Phillips showed off their blooming baby bumps as the royal family gathered this morning for a traditional Easter Sunday Service. And when it comes to instilling good values and morals in Prince George and Princess Charlotte, they don't mess around. For the outing, Middleton wore a classic dark coat.

Photographers failed to capture the celebration of Prince George and Princess Charlotte, also in the service of the absent Prince Harry with his bride Meghan Markle. As Elle explained, Princess Diana also did the same when she gave birth to both Prince William and Prince Harry.

The senior members of the royal family spent Easter Sunday together for a service at the St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The Duke of Edinburgh has been forced to pull out of attending the service.

The service is particularly poignant as the 14th century chapel will host another very important ceremony this year - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.

Donald Trump slams Amazon for paying 'no taxes'
It's well established that the online retail giant has grown at the expense of brick-and-mortar shops. How outdated? In 2012, Amazon began collecting and paying state taxes in California.

However, what is more intriguing is that the new addition to the royal family will be born a commoner, even though it will be given an impressive title.

He stepped down from his public duties last summer but on occasion does attend events with the Queen.

Queen Elizabeth II's husband, Prince Philip, was also not in attendance.

Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn, Prince Edward, the Countess of Wessex and their children Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn, also attended. The daughter of Princess Anne was seen outside before the service started chatting with Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice. The Duchess of Cambridge, who is expecting her third child in April, paired a stylish yet demure black Catherine Walker coat with a matching Lock & Co hat, pearl accessories and nude heels, while William donned a navy blue suit.

On March 22 Kate made her final public engagement before giving birth.
