This morning, Queen Elizabeth turned 93. The British monarch celebrated her birthday by attending Easter church services in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle alongside several members of her family. Prince William and Kate were in attendance, as were Princess Anne and her two children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall and their spouses. Prince Andrew, Princess Beatrice, and Prince Edward and his family were all there as well.

But there were still a few missing faces in the crowd. While Harry walked down the hill alongside his cousins, his wife Meghan stayed home, likely as she is just days away from her due date. Prince Philip also skipped this morning's events, as did Prince Charles and Camilla, who are currently in Scotland.

But regardless of who was at the church this morning, the royal family also turned out for the Queen's big day on social media, sharing tributes to their matriarch on Instagram. See a few of the sweet posts below.
