Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, 90, was joined by members of the Royal family on Sunday (April 16) for an Easter service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor.

Her husband the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — Prince William and his wife Catherine — also attended the service, although they were not accompanied by their children Prince George or Princess Charlotte.

After the service, Queen Elizabeth received flowers from a young girl waiting outside the church.

Last year, Elizabeth missed a traditional Christmas church service for the first time in decades due to a heavy cold.

The world’s longest-reigning living monarch, and her husband Prince Philip, 95, were both suffering in December from what the Palace described as heavy colds which delayed their journey to their Sandringham country residence in eastern England.

Dozens of people waited outside for the royal arrival, and clapped as the monarch entered the church through the Galilee Porch.
