Sophie Winkleman and Zara Tindall had a happy reunion during today’s Saint Paul service.

Sophie, 41, married to Lord Frederick Windsor, 43, the only son of the Queen’s cousin Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, wore a beautiful pink Beulah dress with pearl buttons and a matching hat decorated with flowers when she went to the Cathedral .

Meanwhile, Zara, also 41, attended the service with her husband Mike Tindall and also wore a vibrant pink dress.

They accompanied Prince Charles, 73, the Duchess of Cornwall, 74, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children for the event. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also made a notable appearance.

However, it was announced that the Queen would not attend the service today after experiencing some ‘inconvenience’ during the first day of the celebration.

After the ceremony, Sophie was reunited with Zara Tindall and the pair seemed to enjoy the fact that they both wore pink as they formed a storm.

Sophie, – who famously starred as Big Suze on Peep Show before marrying the royal family in 2009, looked in her element as she went to St Paul’s alongside her husband, 43, who was wearing a dressing gown.

Her bright pink dress was eye-catching in the right way and the look was just refined enough, with pearls on the wrists and chest.

Her shiny locks fell over her shoulders in a slick hair dryer and she wore shimmery make-up, with just a dash of mascara.

Her choice of clothing proved popular, as Princess Beatrice wore the exact same number in blue.

Meanwhile, Zara, the Queen’s 41st granddaughter, donned a fuchsia Laura Green dress and added an extra pop of color by pairing it with a Juliette Botterill hat in lilac trimmed with flowers.

She wore accessories from Laurence Coste earrings and paired her outfit with a light purple Aspinall bag and LK Bennett shoes in a similar shade.

The two women seemed amused by the fact that they donned a similar outfit and posed for photos after the ceremony.

Extended members of the royal family have flocked to the Thanksgiving service today to show their support.

Sophie, who also starred in Two and a Half Men, lives in London and has two children with Frederick, Maud, eight, and Isabella, five.

Maud, attends Thomas’s Battersea, the same school her distant cousins, Prince George and Princess Charlotte attended.

Since the couple tied the knot in 2009, mother-of-two Sophie says everyone has “taken care of” her, especially the Queen and Prince Charles, who were “wonderful,” and Prince William, who she described as “heaven.” .

In 2020, she told The Times: ‘I’ve been incredibly welcomed by everyone with open arms… They would never tell me if I wanted to play. [racy] role.’

A half sister of TV presenter Claudia Winkleman, with whom she shares father Barry Winkleman, Sophie was educated at the private City of London School for Girls before earning an English degree from Cambridge University.

She explained that as children she and the Strictly presenter had “very separate lives” because Claudia, who is nine years her senior, lived with her mother.

It comes when the Queen first met her great-granddaughter Lilibet after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had lunch behind closed doors with the monarch and senior royals as part of the platinum anniversary celebrations.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced their little girl to the Queen – nicknamed Lilibet as a child – in Windsor yesterday after attending a private royal family lunch at Buckingham Palace after Trooping the Colour.

Harry and Meghan are expected to remain mostly inconspicuous over the four-day anniversary weekend, with no sign of the Netflix cameras following them during the Invictus Games in the Netherlands in April. But they will attend Thanksgiving service today at St Paul’s Cathedral – their first joint royal engagement in two years.

Prince Charles officially represents the Queen at the service in London today after she was forced to withdraw last night, and Prince Andrew will also not appear after he tested positive for coronavirus.

The Sussexes, who are staying at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor during a visit from California, were banned from the balcony of Buckingham Palace yesterday and instead watched the work of Horse Guards Parade.

But today’s service marked Harry and Meghan’s first appearance at The Firm since the icy Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in March 2020, shortly before they officially step down as senior royals.

The 96-year-old queen missed today’s service at St Paul’s following a last-minute decision announced by the palace at 7.30pm last night after experiencing ‘discomfort’ at the Trooping The Color events.

She is said to have had episodic mobility issues yesterday – and in a statement, the palace revealed that the Queen “enjoyed her birthday parade and flying past, but “did experience some discomfort.”

It read: ‘Considering the travel and activity required to attend tomorrow’s National Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral, Her Majesty has regretfully concluded that she will not be attending.’

It is clear that the decision ahead of the service, which begins at 11:30 am today, was considered regrettable but wise due to the length of the journey and the time involved and the physical demands the service would make.

The Archbishop of York delivered the sermon during today’s service as the Archbishop of Canterbury had to withdraw due to the coronavirus.

There was no ceremonial trip to the cathedral and cabinet members were also expected to attend today’s proceedings, with Boris Johnson reading from the Bible.

In addition, Sir Keir Starmer attended the service, along with the chief ministers of the devolved governments and former prime ministers.

Meanwhile, key figures, charity volunteers and members of the armed forces were invited to the Queen’s Thanksgiving service at St Paul’s today in recognition of their contribution to public life.

More than 400 people who have made a difference nationally or locally were among the guests and many have worked tirelessly during the pandemic.

Before the service begins, the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Portsmouth (Royal Band) played as the congregation arrived and the state trumpeters of the Household Cavalry performed to mark the royal arrivals, while the Fanfare Trumpeters of the Central Band of the Royal Air Force accompanied later in the service.

The choirs of St Paul’s Cathedral and Her Majesty’s Chapel Royal have teamed up to sing Sir Hubert Parry’s Vivats, I Was Glad, performed at every coronation and now for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
