Royals on Easter Sunday

As Easter Day gets under way, royals across Europe have been attending services. From the sunshine of Rome to rain in Windsor, there have been many celebrations taking place with more still to come. And we start with Felipe of Spain and his family who headed to Easter Mass in Palma de Mallorca with blue skies behind them.

Spain's royals head to church on Easter Sunday

King Felipe, Queen Letizia, their daughters, Princess Leonor and Infanta Sofia, and Queen Sofia posed for photographers before heading into the service at Palma Cathedral.

The Queen led the Royal Family at Easter celebrations at Windsor. They attended a church service at St George's Chapel this morning.

It was a smaller gathering than previous years with Prince Harry still in Nepal and Prince William in Kenya for a wedding. There was no George and Charlotte appearance as Kate has taken them to stay with her parents. Charles and Camilla usually spend the holidays in Scotland but the Queen was joined fighting wind and showery rain in Windsor by children and grandchildren. And in the moments of spring sunshine that made it through, the Countess of Wessex and Princess Beatrice led the fashion pack.

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of the Belgians are keeping Easter privately following very sad and difficult week they and their fellow citizens have lived through. King Albert II and Queen Paola of the Belgians attended Easter Mass at the Vatican and met Pope Francis following the ceremony.

Check back later for more photos of the royals at Easter - and in the meantime, Happy Easter!
