King Charles is planning to attend Easter Sunday service if his health allows.

He hopes to lead the royals at the Easter service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The King and Queen Camilla will be joined by a reduced number of royals with the Prince and Princess of Wales being absent as Catherine undergoes preventative chemotherapy for cancer.

A palace source said: “The King and Queen are hoping to attend some form of Easter service in Windsor. However, it will not be the large family gathering that we might expect to see in different circumstances.”

King Charles is also undergoing cancer treatment and has stepped back from most public royal duties.

He has recorded an audio message to be played at Royal Maundy Thursday services this week at Worcester Cathedral. Queen Camilla will attend on his behalf. The Queen will hand out the Maundy money on behalf of her husband.

Maundy money is presented to men and women in one red and one white pouch, the latter containing money equal to the monarch’s age.

After Easter, the King and Queen will go on their annual post-Easter break.
