Duchess of Cambridge accompanies the Queen to church alongside Prince William

  • The Duchess of Cambridge was spotted accompanying the Queen to church.
  • Prince William was also seen in the same car with his grandmother and wife.
  • This follows royal news that Prince Harry would not be able to join them this weekend.

Her Majesty the Queen is currently in Scotland on her annual summer break, and usually goes to church on Sundays accompanied by other members of the royal family.

This weekend it was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's turn, as the couple are spending a few days at Balmoral with their three children - Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The pair were photographed in the car with the Queen, where Duchess Catherine can be seen wearing a navy trenchcoat and a stunning pair of earrings thought to be from UK brand Asprey.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance, as well as Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex with their daughter Lady Louise, Princess Anne, her husband Timothy Laurence, and Anne's son Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not present, as Prince Harry had a prior engagement in London.

He attended the Rugby League Challenge Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, after taking over from the Queen as patron of the Rugby Football League in December 2016.

Going to church is part of the Queen's routine while at Balmoral. But despite keeping in tradition for the most part of her summer break, it turns out that there's one thing the Queen won't be able to tick off her list.

Her Majesty will not be able to go grouse shooting, one of her favourite past times, as there is a shortage of birds in the Scottish Highlands.

A spokesperson for Balmoral confirmed that the activity would not go ahead to Hello! magazine, saying: “Grouse populations are cyclical and to retain and preserve stock there will be no grouse shooting this year. And that happens periodically.”
