Windsor will be witnessing a very different sort of Easter this year. Last time, we saw a full turnout of the Royal Family in the spring sunshine at St George's Chapel. The chief concern back then was the countdown to the Coronation.

This year, it is going to be a much smaller affair. We are likely to see the King and Queen but his health, of necessity, demands a much-reduced crowd around him.

The Princess of Wales and her family are not expected at all. They want to make the most of the Easter holidays and maximise her three wishes: time, space and privacy.
