Meghan Markle hasn’t been seen in public since March 29 as she prepares for the arrival of her baby. So will she join the Queen at church this Easter?
For Easter last year, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were notably absent from the Easter service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. Back then, the pair were preparing for their wedding in the same venue and were said to be enjoying the holiday in private. But this year, Easter falls on an extra special date: The Queen’s 93rd birthday.
Few are expecting to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex out on Easter Sunday, given their baby is due any day now.
But, if the Royal Baby isn’t quite ready yet, they might have a hard time getting out of the trip to church as the couple now live just an eight-minute drive away from St George’s Chapel.
Meghan and Harry relocated to Windsor last month ahead of the birth and are living in the newly renovated Frogmore Cottage.
Added to this is that fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, won’t be with Her Majesty for Easter this year.
It is believed they will be in Norfolk with their three children for the break.
So perhaps we might catch a glimpse of Meghan and Harry as they enter or exit the church.
But even if they don’t, the Queen will still be surrounded by family on her birthday.
Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, the Queen’s granddaughters, will attend the Easter service with their father Prince Andrew.
Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn with their parents Edward and Sophie are also expected to attend.
The public doesn’t usually see the Queen in public on her birthday – well, not the real one at least.
Her Majesty actually celebrates two birthdays each year, with the second held in June – this year, it’ll be on June 8.
