Queen Elizabeth
While Prince Harry is enjoying Easter weekend with girlfriend Meghan Markle in Toronto, how is his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, planning to spend the holiday? For the Queen, Easter is a serious, religious holiday, as she is the head of the Church of England. The majority of her day is spent privately with family, but royal watchers do get a glimpse of the monarch each year on her way to church. On Easter Sunday, the Queen and the rest of the royal family typically spend the day at Windsor Castle. They’ll attend Easter services at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, where crowds will gather to see the family following church. A group of local children typically present bouquets of flowers to the Queen after services, too. The Queen’s other big Easter-related public engagement

Why Queen Elizabeth Is Giving People Bags of Money Today Queen Elizabeth handed out coins to 91 men and 91 women on Thursday in a tradition dating back to the 13th century: the distribution of Maundy money. Thousands of well-wishers lined the streets to welcome the Queen, dressed in a turquoise suit and matching hat, as she attended the Royal Maundy Service at Leicester Cathedral.

The Queen came face-to-face with a baby elephant called Elizabeth during her visit to Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire on Tuesday. The royal and her husband Prince Philip met the adorable creature as they toured the new Centre for Elephant Care, which is home to a herd of nine Asian elephants, including Elizabeth. The animal, who was born in June, was named after the Queen in celebration of Her Majesty's 90th birthday last year. As Patron of the Zoological Society of London, the Queen had the honour of opening the new care centre, which is set within 30 acres of land. The royals were introduced to vets and zoo keepers and shown around the arena. They watched the team carry out daily tasks such as nail filing and mouth care.

Princess Victoria of Sweden was overcome with emotion on Saturday when she visited the scene of Friday’s suspected terror attack in Stockholm. Victoria could be seen in tears as she laid flowers at the memorial site accompanied by her husband Prince Daniel. The Royal couple stood in silence as a sign of respect for the victims of the shocking attack. On Friday, a lorry was driven into the Ahlens department store in the Swedish capital, killing four people and injuring 15. The four killed have been confirmed as being one Brit, a Belgian woman and two Swedes. The Mail reports that one victim of the attack was an 11-year-old girl on her way home from school.

Meghan Markle did not shut down her website The Tig because of Queen Elizabeth. That’s the claim from a tabloid that’s been caught manufacturing a fake news story. Gossip Cop has the actual facts. OK! is busted again for making up another royal lie. This time the often discredited magazine alleges Prince Harry’s actress girlfriend shuttered her lifestyle blog “after the queen complains.” Exposing its sloppiness, the tabloid writes, “Insiders claimed that her future mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth was never a fan of her ‘cheap and common’ social media exposure.” Gossip Cop would like to know who these “insiders” are because they don’t know anything about the royals. Queen Elizabeth could never be Markle’s “future mother-in-law.” That would have been Princess Diana. Queen Elizabe

Prince Charles and Camilla wedding anniversary: Royal couple in pictures Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary today. To mark the occasion, here is a look back at their love story in pictures. It is hard to believe that just 12 years ago, Camilla was considered “toxic” by the British public who were still mourning the loss of Princess Diana. Many begrudged Camilla for her role as the third person in the Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage, and in the run-up to their wedding – a low-key civil ceremony at Windsor Guidlhall – there was even doubt over whether the Queen would attend. n the end the Queen skipped the ceremony, to avoid a conflict with her role as Supreme Governor of the Church of England, but held a reception
