Prince William and Kate Middleton's family didn't attend Easter Sunday service alongside King Charles, but here are all the royals who did

Prince William and Kate Middleton's family didn't attend Easter Sunday service alongside King Charles, but here are all the royals who did
  • The Prince and Princess of Wales didn't attend Easter Sunday service with the royal family.
  • King Charles III made his first major public appearance since announcing his cancer diagnosis.
  • Here are all the royals who attended the service.

The Prince and Princess of Wales' family did not attend the Easter Mattins Service on Sunday.

A few British royals attended the service at St. George's Chapel, but Prince William, 41, Kate Middleton, 42, and their three children were not among them.

The family appeared at the service last Easter but decided to step back following Middleton's health announcement this month. Middleton said she has cancer in a video statement after undergoing abdominal surgery.

Middleton is undergoing chemotherapy treatment and recovering, so the couple and their children — Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5 — are spending a private weekend at their home instead, according to People.

The service also marked King Charles III's first major public outing since his own cancer diagnosis this year. Buckingham Palace announced Charles, 75, had cancer in February after he underwent a prostate procedure.

Here are all the royals at this year's Easter Sunday service.

Photographers captured Queen Camilla, 76, at Sunday's service. Following Charles' cancer announcement, she continued royal duties and attended more than 13 official engagements.
