Queen Elizabeth II attended a church service recently with some members of the royal family.

On Sunday, the Queen was photographed with son Prince Charles and grandson Prince William on their way to a church service at Crathie Kirk in Scotland. Camilla Parker Bowles was also spotted during the sighting. However, Kate Middleton was noticeably missing.

In the photo shared by Daily Express, the Queen donned a chic orange coat with a matching hat trimmed with feathers. She complemented her look with a dark berry shade of lipstick.

The Duchess of Cambridge is believed to be at home with her three children, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and 4-month-old Prince Louis. A few weeks back, Middleton was photographed accompanying Queen Elizabeth II at a church service in Balmoral.

For the outing, the duchess channeled Princess Diana by wearing a gray coat that was reminiscent of the late Princess of Wales' outfit when she was photographed walking with Prince Charles along the River Dee during their honeymoon in Balmoral. Middleton paired her gray coat with a black bag and accessorized with a pair of pearl drop earrings from the Queen's vault.

During Prince William and Middleton's stay in Balmoral, they also took Prince George on his first grouse hunting. However, many were not happy with this, claiming that Prince George might grow up without compassion for animals.

"It's just too bad animals have to die in order for them to have fun. That's a terrible thing to teach children, especially at George's age. Modernize Royals. Join the human race," Gail Thompson Mosley commented on Emily Andrew's post.

"I just read a news article that said Prince George was taken to his first grouse shoot while staying a Balmoral. If that's the case, it make me feel sad & angry that he's going to grow up without any empathy for animals," Michelle P agreed.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also spent some time with the Queen in Balmoral where they enjoy long walks and barbecue. However, the Duke of Sussex didn't join the grouse hunting, reportedly in order to avoid upsetting Markle, who is an animal rights advocate.
