It has been revealed that the Queen, on her first Easter without Prince Philip, was surrounded by certain members of the Royal Family who stepped in to comfort Her Majesty.


This weekend the Queen did not join the rest of her family when the royals attended the Easter Sunday service at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle

Due to Her Majesty's current mobility issues, it is thought that instead, the Queen stayed at Windsor Castle with a select few members of the Royal Family, including one of the Queen's eight grandchildren.

This would have been a lovely distraction for the Queen who is marking this holiday for the first time without her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

According to OK! Her Majesty was joined by Princess Beatrice, her husband  Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, and their two children at Windsor Castle while other members of the Royal Family made an appearance at the church service.

The couple shares a daughter named Sienna, who was born in 2021, and Christopher Mapelli Mozzi (nicknamed Wolfie) who is Edo's son from a previous relationship.

While this Easter was a sad first for Her Majesty, as it marked her first Easter without her late husband, it was a lovely first for Sienna who has not celebrated Easter before as she is only 7 months old.

It seems there were quite a few children in Windsor Castle that day as it is thought that Her Majesty was also joined by Prince Louis, yet another one of the Queen's great-grandchildren.

Prince Louis is nearly four, but was considered too young to attend the Easter Sunday church service with his parents and siblings so was reportedly left at Windsor Castle with his nanny Maria Borrallo.

It is thought that after the church service, the Cambridge family went to the castle and also spent time with Her Majesty once they had represented the monarchy at the Christian celebration.
