The Queen and Princess Eugenie returned to the church where Eugenie got married last year for the first time in a rare joint engagement. Both royals attended an Easter service at St George’s Chapel, in Windsor, on April 18 to mark Maundy Thursday.
The Queen, who turns 93 on April 20, handed out Maundy money to 93 men and women, one for each of her 93 years during the service. The pensioners were chosen in recognition of their service to the community and the church.
Both royals opted for labels they’ve previously worn for the service. The Queen wore a Stewart Parvin ensemble in yellow with a matching Rachel Trevor-Morgan hat; while Eugenie wore a floral Erdem dress with a ruffled hemline. The princess completed her look with a plaited navy hat by London-based milliner Juliette Botterill and matching heels. She has previously looked to Erdem for Royal Ascot 2019 looks and her engagement announcement to Jack Brooksbank in January 2018.
For her wedding in October 2018, Eugenie wore Peter Pilotto. The white gown – designed by Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos gown – featured symbols that were personal to Eugenie and Brooksbank: a thistle to acknowledge the couple’s fondness for Balmoral, a shamrock as a nod to the bride’s roots, and a rose and ivy to represent the couple’s home.
