    Does anyone know if these places will be open for the Easter weekend (March 22-24). And are the open Sundays normally?

    Should be. Easter is not a holiday in Thailand. Temples open everyday, even if a certain hall is used for a private ceremony, rest of compound is usually still open. Don't believe anyone who claims that temples 'are closed because it's a Buddhist holy day', on the contrary, such days are when most people turn up to pray & make offerings. FYI the nearest 'Buddha days' (for lack of better translation) will be 21 & 29 March.

    Bureau of the Royal Household homepage:

    (top navigation bar --> Grand Palace --> drop down menu --> option #13 Helpful Info: about appropriate attire, opening hours, phone no., etc.)
    Unfortunately the Bureau's Announcements & PR News sections are outdated.
