Princess Eugenie stepped out with her grandmother — the Queen — on Thursday for a rare joint appearance.

The pair joined forces for the annual Royal Maundy Service at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, where the ceremony sees the 92-year-old monarch hand out commemorative coins to deserving pensioners. The ceremony falls the day before Good Friday and commemorates The Last Supper.

The outing marks just the second time a royal besides Prince Philip appeared with the Queen for the traditional service. In the past she has been joined by Eugenie’s older sister Princess Beatrice.

For the occasion, Eugenie opted to recycle a high-necked, printed dress by fashion label Erdem. She previously wore the look to the Royal Ascot last June, when she paired it with a wide-brimmed hat, and to a U.N. meeting last July. For Thursday, the 29-year-old completed the outfit with a navy headband and black pointed heels.

The Queen stuck to her trademark bold colors and wide-brimmed hat for the occasion, as she stood out in a bright yellow coat which she coupled with a printed dress. She finished off the look with one of her trademark Launer handbags.

Meanwhile, Eugenie’s mother Sarah Ferguson later took to social media to praise her daughter and the Queen. She wrote: “So proud of Her Majesty and Eugenie at the Maundy Thursday Service at St. George’s Chapel today.”

Her Majesty will be in Windsor across the Easter weekend. Along with other members of her family, the Queen will attend a church service on Easter Sunday at St George’s Chapel.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could possibly be absent from the festivities as they’re expecting their first baby any day now. Buckingham Palace confirmed last week the young royals will not follow in the footsteps of Prince William and Kate and instead keep details of their first child private until after they have settled in together.

Rather than posing for photos outside a hospital, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will remain behind closed doors for a short while after welcoming their first child into the world.
