Royal Diary: upcoming royal engagements 15th-21st April

It’s a quiet week for the royals due to the Easter holidays, with engagements from Princess Anne and The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. However, we can expect to see The Queen and other members of the family during the traditional Easter service at Windsor; attendance is not announced in advance, although the Cambridges, Wessexes and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have all made appearances in the past.
