Queen will not attend Easter Sunday service at Windsor as Palace confirm Monarch's absence


Her Majesty has cancelled numerous engagements in recent months as other senior royals step up their duties.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, is expected to attend the service on the grounds of Windsor, along with Prince William, 39, and heir Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Previously, the service has also included the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

The Queen had previously announced she would not attend Thursday’s Maundy Service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, where the Easter Mattins Service is also held.

She requested Prince Charles take the lead in the Firm’s presence at the ceremony for the first time.

Her Majesty, 95, traditionally hands out money to pensioners nominated by the local communities and dioceses.

Maundy Thursday commemorates Jesus washing the feet of his disciplines at the Last Supper.
