She was joined by her oldest grandson, Prince William and wife Kate, who is due to give birth to the couple’s third child this month, and other members of the royal family.

The queen’s 96-year-old husband Prince Philip was absent from the service, as were Harry and his fiancee.

Philip pulled out of the Royal Maundy Service at Leicester Cathedral in central England on Thursday because of a hip problem, according to a royal source.
