Princess Charlotte appeared to be in a hurry to make a quick exit from the royal family‘s traditional Easter service this morning, with the young royal gently tugging on her mother’s dresscoat following the trip to St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

The six-year-old royal appeared more than ready to depart the seasonal service while her parents and older brother George, eight, lingered to chat with the Dean of Windsor. 

As Kate, 40, shook hands with the current Dean, David Conner, and Prince William, 39, took the time to chat about the service, Charlotte appeared a little impatient at their leisurely departure. 

The youngster held onto her mother’s stylish dresscoat, appearing to try and nudge her in the right direction before eventually taking a few steps away from her family as the conversation continued in the bright Windsor sunshine.

The Cambridges, the most senior royals to attend, looked coordinated for the Easter Mattins Service, all wearing shades of blue. The couple’s youngest child, Prince Louis, three, did not attend.

Kate recycled an old favourite for the traditional trip to church – a pale blue bespoke dresscoat – while Prince George and Prince William donned sharp suits, with Princess Charlotte opting for a pretty blue floral dress and baby blue tights.

The Duchess previously wore the Emilia Wickstead dresscoat for a visit to Luxembourg in 2017 but refreshed the look today with a pastel colour clutch bag, grey suede heels and a stylish hat in a shade of deeper blue.

The Cambridges led the senior royals for the Easter service, with other members of the extended Windsor family – including Princess Eugenie and Zara and Mike Tindall, joining them. The Queen was unable to attend because of ongoing mobility issues.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, who represented the Queen at Thursday’s Royal Maundy service at the same chapel, also chose not to attend the Easter Sunday service, which is a staple in the royal calendar. 

The 40-year-old Duchess chose to wear light blue, as did Princess Charlotte, six, who appeared spring-ready in a ‘Forget Me Not Smocked Dress’ from Rachel Riley, worth £119. Prince George, like his father, wore a suit and tie.

The Duchess of Cambridge swept her glossy brunette hair back with a blue ‘Jane Taylor diamond crepe pleated head band’, completing her look with a subtle pink lipstick and bronzer. 

It is not unusual for people to opt for wearing pastel colours around Easter, with white signifying holiness and green traditionally symbolizing rebirth as associated with the resurrection of Jesus Chris which the holiday marks.

However, blue is said to have less religious connotations and rather be a reminder of springtime joy and ‘bluer skies’.   

Miranda Holder, who is the Founder of the Feel Good Fashion Coach, explained the possible significance of the family choosing to coordinate in blue, saying: ‘The Windsors stepped out in style, led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, and there was a colourful theme to their outfits which appeared to be the colour blue.

‘Kate looked immaculate as usual, in one of her signature coat dresses in powder blue with tonal accessories which made the look even more striking and elegant. The Duchess of Cambridge’s outfit was complemented by her daughter, Princess Charlotte who also wore the pretty pastel shade in a printed dress with matching tights and cardigan.

‘Sophie Wessex also themed her look around the hue, and wore a more flamboyant printed dress accentuated with a trademark blue headpiece.

‘Blue is a very calming colour and is worn by many professionals such as doctors to elicit trust and confidence. Being the colour of the throat chakra it’s known to enhance communication and help the wearer feel more in control – so perhaps today it was assisting the Royals to put on a stronger front in light of the Queen’s absence.’

The Cambridge family previously showed themselves as a collective unit by wearing blue to clap for NHS staff during the pandemic and for their tour of Berlin.

Kate and William matched in blue three times during their controversial trip to the Caribbean in March.

The Cambridge children’s Easter Sunday outing follows another rare public appearance last month in honour of their great-grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.

The eight-year-old future king and his six-year-old sister joined their parents at the memorial service for Philip at Westminster Abbey.

The Queen, who was also present at the memorial service, has been carrying out virtual events and other duties as head of state.

The 95-year-old, who turns 96 on Thursday, reached her Platinum Jubilee in February and overcame a bout of Covid after testing positive that month.

After spending a night in hospital last October, she spent the following three months under doctors’ orders to only conduct light duties and missed a number of prominent events.

The Queen had a visit from her grandson the Duke of Sussex and his wife the Duchess of Sussex in Windsor on Thursday.

Harry and Meghan had flown from their home in the US and stopped off in England before heading to The Hague in the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

While in Windsor, the couple also met with Charles. Harry and Meghan’s attendance at a reception at the games on Friday marked their first public appearance together in Europe since quitting as senior working royals more than two years ago.

‘I have found myself heartbroken at the sufferings of the innocent victims of conflict, or persecution’: Prince Charles releases emotive Easter speech 

This year I had the enormous privilege of representing Her Majesty The Queen at the Service for Maundy Thursday, when Christians remember that humility and sacrifice are at the heart of our faith.

At that service, which he attended with my mother so many times over the years, my father, The Duke of Edinburgh, always used to read the Gospel which tells how on the night of the Last Supper, Jesus knelt before his disciples and washed their travel-weary feet.

Our Lord told them that he was doing this to give them an example of how to look after and to serve one another. It is a message they never forgot, and it is as challenging today as it was then.

Today, millions of people find themselves displaced, wearied by their journey from troubled places, wounded by the past, fearful of the future – and in need of a welcome, of rest, and of kindness.

Over the past years, I have found myself heartbroken at the sufferings of the innocent victims of conflict, or persecution, some of whom I have met and who have told me stories of unutterable tragedy as they have been forced to flee their country and seek shelter far from home.

But amidst all this sadness and inhumanity, it has been profoundly moving to see how so many people are ready to open their homes to those in need, and how they have offered their time and their resources to help those facing such soul-destroying sorrow and hardship.

This Easter, as always, we are reminded of Our Lord’s timeless example of goodness in the face of suffering, of courage in the face of fear, of faith in the face of despair. His light triumphed in that dark time. I pray with all my heart that his inspiring example might help us all dispel the darkness of the world…
