Just a week after officially starting her maternity leave, Kate Middleton made a surprise public appearance at Easter service on Sunday. Passers-by this week noted that the railings by the steps of the entrance - where the new little Prince or Princess will make their public debut with proud parents Prince William and Kate - have received a fresh coat of paint, with the Sun's royal photographer Arthur Edwards tweeting: "The railings outside The Lindo Wing at St Mary's Hospital Paddington are being painted". After the Easter service, the Queen meets local children who have also attended the service, and she is presented with a bouquet of flowers.

Neither Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Mia Tindall attended the Easter church service at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

During her latest sighting, the royal wore a dark coat, giant pearl earrings, and pin.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle - who will Wednesday in May - opted to skip church services.

And while many were anticipating to see the two adorable children, it has been revealed that they don't always attend Easter service with the Queen.

"The whole family is excited, including the children, who are very much aware that they are about to welcome a new brother or sister".

However, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and Prince Philip were noticeably missing.

The Duchess of Cambridge - who is due to give birth this month - also looked glowing in a tailored brown coat by Catherine Walker.

The 96-year-old was last seen on Wednesday, March 28 driving around Windsor Great Park.

THE DUKE and Duchess of Cambridge don't know the gender of their third baby.

The Queen was welcomed with curtsies from the likes of Princess Beatrice and Eugenie, who had brought her fiance James Brooksbank to the event.

Similarly, when Kate was pregnant with Princess Charlotte, she gave birth 37 days after beginning her maternity leave.
