Royal service for Queen Mother and Princess Margaret

A tragic double loss suffered by the Queen and her family ten years ago was remembered when a special service was held at St George's Chapel in Windsor at the weekend.

Windsor Castle was closed on Friday as the royal family attended a thanksgiving service held at St George's Chapel - in memory of the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, whose sad deaths within weeks of each other exactly ten years ago cast a shadow in the build up to the Golden Jubilee celebrations.

But on the weekend the emphasis was on celebrating their lives as the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and senior members of the family attended the historic chapel for a service that had poignant meaning for them all.

The Dean of Windsor, the Right Reverend David Conner, the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence, were all at the event.

Also in the congregation were the Duke of York who was joined by his daughters, princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and the Countess of Wessex.
