The royal trio were joined by 50 other members of the royal family, including Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York and Mike and Zara Tindall, in addition to an array of British dignitaries, including Prime Minister David Cameron.

As they walked into the magnificent cathedral, the Duchess of Cambridge giggled as Prince Harry whispered something in her ear. The close family members took their seats as they awaited the arrival of Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, who arrived 11 minutes late due to London traffic.

The British monarch wore a primrose yellow outfit by Angela Kelly to the majestic event — a national service of thanksgiving to celebrate her life and that launches a weekend of events marking her 90th birthday, which was on April 21.

In addition to marking the Queen’s significant birthday, her husband, Prince Philip, is also celebrating his birthday today. The Queen’s consort, who turns 95, will be honored later with a traditional gun salute.

Following the cathedral service, the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall hosted a lunch for the Governors General of all Commonwealth Realms at Buckingham Palace.
