With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic putting a stop to the traditional Easter celebrations for the Royal Family for the second year in a row, Royal Circular thought we would take a look back at some of the most memorable pictures of The Royal Family at Easter throughout the years, beginning with the 2005 Maundy Service.
The first photo pictures Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh at the traditional Maundy Service in 2005. The Maundy service is held at various cathedrals or churches each year and in 2005, Wakefield Cathedral was chosen. 158 Wakefield pensioners received Maundy Money from Her Majesty The Queen.
The next photo shows The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall trying their hand at piping Easter eggs during a visit to the tasting rooms and cookery school at Taylors of Harrogate as part of their tour of the area in February 2016.
Our third photo shows Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother arriving for the traditional Easter service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. Queen Elizabeth is seen being greeted by the Dean of Windsor, Michael Mann.
A group shot below shows The Princess Royal and The Earl and Countess of Wessex arriving at St George’s Chapel at Easter 2001.
On her second Royal Maundy Service in 1953, The Queen is seen leaving St Paul’s Cathedral alongside The Duke of Edinburgh.
On the last Royal Maundy Service before the Coronavirus pandemic, The Queen is joined by Princess Eugenie at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.
A great shot of The Queen as she attends the traditional Easter service in Windsor on 4th April 2010.
We leave you with this equally stunning shot of Her Majesty as she leaves St George’s Chapel in 2019.
From us at Royal Circular, we wish you and your family a very Happy and Peaceful Easter.
