Queen Elizabeth and Lady Louise Windsor were among a small group of British Royals who attended Easter Matins Sunday, March 31, 2013. Under the watchful eye of her mother, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Lady Louise Windsor helped the Queen receive flowers from children and even received a few of their own.
Just as in 2012, the group attending Easter service at Windsor was small, and consisted of the Earl and Countess of Wessex with Lady Louise, the Queen and Prince Philip, Prince Andrew, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. The service was given by Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner.
The Queen wore a subtle pink outfit, while the other ladies went for dark or brighter blue clothing. According to The Daily Mail, the Countess of Wessex was named the London School of Fashion's first patron last week, so she stepped up to the plate with a peacock blue outfit and feathered fascinator.
According to ITV News, it was a cold March day, though nothing compared to the icy and snowy spring that much of Britain has been experiencing so far this month. Well-wishers were on hand to watch the small parade of British Royals.
