Prince Charles and Queen in new photos for Easter after UK lockdown easing

Two new photographs have been released of The Queen and Prince Charles, ahead of Easter Sunday.

The 94-year-old Monarch and her 72-year-old son are seen taking a stroll at Frogmore, located in Windsor Great Park, where The Queen has been spending her time since the beginning of the pandemic.

Her Majesty is wearing a deep green long coat with cape, and her usual silk scarf around her head for the outdoors in cream and baby blue. She also wears knitted fairisle-style  gloves.

The Prince of Wales wears a camel coat over his suit and tie.

The background of the Frogmore landscape is a burst of colour with daffodils and cherry blossom, plus green grass and a serene river.

Lockdown rules eased in the UK earlier this week, allowing for up to six people to meet outside, or two households, meaning the Royals can currently spend time with one another outdoors.

Both the Monarch and Prince have been vaccinated, with Her Majesty undertaking her first in-person engagement of the year on Thursday; she marked the centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force at nearby Runnymede.

However, the traditional Easter mattins service at Windsor will not go ahead. We usually see Royals join The Queen for the service on Easter Sunday, but current restrictions mean that is not possible.

Maundy Thursday celebrations were also cancelled for a second time, but parishioners still received the traditional Maundy Money from The Queen, delivered to their homes. In 2020, the money was sent through the post, accompanied by a letter.

Elizabeth, who turns 95 this month, welcomed Prince Philip home to Windsor almost two weeks ago, after treatment for an infection and a heart procedure saw him in hospital for a month. The Duke of Edinburgh celebrates his 100th birthday in June.
