Britain’s royal family gathered in full at Windsor on 9 April for the traditional Easter service at St George’s Chapel. Alongside King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla, Princess Anne, who came with her daughter Zara Tyndall, and Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Prince William and Kate Middleton appeared with their three children. Remarkably, even the scandalous Prince Andrew was invited to the service, accompanied by his daughters, Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank and Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Of course, all the media attention was captured by Kate’s monochromatic bright blue look. In public, the Princess of Wales appeared in an elegant fitted coat by Catherine Walker (the same coat she wore to the Commonwealth Day celebrations in 2022) and complemented the basic attire with a Lock & Co. Hatters and a matching Emmy London clutch, along with beige Gianvito Rossi pumps and lapis lazuli and moonstone earrings. But the most unusual detail of her look was the red manicure. Normally the princess chooses calm tones and bright nails are considered a violation of royal protocol.
The image of William and Kate’s 7-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, was also up for discussion. Catherine dressed her in an adorable blue Rachel Riley flowered dress, which was complemented by thick blue tights and black ballerinas. Note that this is the second Easter service for her and 9-year-old Prince George, while 4-year-old Louis joined the event for the first time.
