Prince William and Kate Middleton were all smiles attending Queen Elizabeth II’s National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral in London on Friday.

The ceremony is just one of several events happening this weekend as part of Her Majesty’s ongoing Platinum Jubilee, which kicked off Thursday afternoon.

Middleton, 40, dressed to impress in a pastel yellow dress while William, 39, looked dapper in conservative grey suit displaying his service medals.

The Service of Thanksgiving recognizes the Queen’s position as a spiritual leader and head of the Church of England.

Unfortunately, the Queen herself was absent after feeling “discomfort” during Thursday’s Jubilee festivities.

“The Queen greatly enjoyed today’s Birthday Parade and Flypast but did experience some discomfort,” a spokesperson for the royal family said in a statement on Thursday.

“Taking into account the journey and activity required to participate in tomorrow’s National Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral, her Majesty with great reluctance has concluded not to attend.”

The statement concluded, “The Queen is looking forward to participating in [Thursday night’s] Beacon lighting event at Windsor Castle and would like to thank all those who made today such a memorable occasion.”

Both Prince Andrew and the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby – who was scheduled to speak – were also forced to skip the event after testing positive for COVID-19.
