King Charles and Queen Camilla will sit away from the rest of the congregation at the Easter service on Sunday.

The King and Queen will sit away from the other churchgoers to protect the King’s health as he is still undergoing treatment for an unspecified cancer.

He is hoping to be able to take the traditional walk to and from St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle to be able to greet the public.

This will be his first public appearance since announcing his cancer diagnosis almost two months ago.

In another change, there will be no lunch after Easter service. The Royal Family usually gathers together at Windsor Castle after Easter service for roast lamb.

Even though plans have been set for Easter, palace sources have not ruled out changes to the itinerary if circumstances change.

A smaller group of royals will attend Easter this year with the Prince and Princess of Wales absent after Catherine’s cancer diagnosis and announcement that she is undergoing preventative chemotherapy.

Buckingham Palace has not confirmed which royals will attend this year.
