How Prince William, Kate Middleton and the Rest of the Royal Family Are Spending Easter Amid Coronavirus Pandemic


The royal family is gearing up for their annual Easter celebrations, but with social distancing measures in place, celebrations are going to look slightly different than in years prior.

Prince William and Kate usually spend the holidays with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, but this year, everyone is celebrating privately at their residences.

The Queen is set to celebrate the holiday privately at Windsor Castle, according to Hello Magazine, while Kate and William will celebrate at Anmer Hall, about 10 miles north of London, where they’ve been self-isolating and working from home.

This means the couple will forgo the annual Easter church services with the Queen.

However, that doesn’t mean everything is canceled.

In order to keep some sense of normalcy, People reports that the Prince George, Prince Charlotte, and Prince Louis will likely participate in a traditional Easter egg.

Earlier this week, the royal couple also confirmed that despite canceling many traditional aspects of Easter celebrations, there would be plenty of fun and a good amount of candy for the children.

“There will be a lot of chocolate being eaten here, don’t worry!” Prince William said before Kate turned to him and said with a laugh, “You keep eating it!”

In March, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s social media account, Kensington Royal, posted a video of the children clapping and championing all the healthcare workers fighting on the frontlines as part of the viral hashtag initiative, Clap For Our Carers.

“To all the doctors, nurses, carers, GPs, pharmacists, volunteers and other NHS staff working tirelessly to help those affected by #COVID19: thank you ClapForOurCarers, #ClapForCarers, #ThankYouNHS and #ClapForNHS,” the post read.

As for Prince Harry and Meghan, the duo will likely celebrate their first Easter with their soon-to-be one-year-old son Archie privately in their new Los Angeles home, the Daily Express reports.

The couple recently announced their new foundation, “Archewell,” but said they are focusing their efforts on the battle against coronavirus for the time being.
