Queen Elizabeth II attended a church service without her granddaughters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.

On Sunday, the monarch was spotted at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham. She was accompanied by other members of the royal family including Prince Edward and Lady Louise.

Queen Elizabeth II looked festive in her dark pink coat with matching hat that was adorned with white flowers held together by a silver bow. Her Majesty accessorized with a pair of drop pearl earrings and multiple-strand necklace.

Prince William, Middleton, Prince Harry and Markle were missing. The fab four reunited last Christmas in Scotland to spend the holidays with the monarch. However, it is believed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have already returned to their homes.

Prince William and Middleton have reportedly decided to spend every Christmas with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip due to their advancing years. So, the couple has to see Middleton’s parents before or after the festivities each year.

According to royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams, since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will no longer be alternating their Christmas holidays between the royal family and the Middletons, they will likely spend New Year’s Day with the latter. Fitzwilliams added that Prince William and Middleton will spend the upcoming holiday at the Middletons’ family home in Berkshire.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Markle spent their New Year in Monaco in 2018. This time, the couple is believed to stay in Sandringham or closer to home. The pair is expecting their first baby and is unlikely to travel to celebrate the season because Markle is believed to be due soon.

During a Christmas Day appearance, Markle told Karen Anvil that her pregnancy was nearing its end. When asked if she was excited, the Duchess of Sussex reportedly said, “There wasn’t long left to go.”

According to one expert, based on Markle’s appearance, the duchess is already six months along. Jane Mayhead, a senior trichology consultant at The Private Clinic of Harley Street, noticed that the pregnant royal has thicker locks.

According to Mayhead, pregnant women experience an increase in volume in their hair due to increased levels of hormones that can cause the growth cycle of hair to increase around their six-month mark. Thus, Markle may deliver her firstborn in March.
