Queen attends rare royal double christening at Windsor

Written by on 21/11/2021

The Queen has attended a rare royal double christening at a private ceremony at Windsor.

The 95-year-old monarch saw two of her great-grandsons being baptised – Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s first child, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, and Mike and Zara Tindall’s third baby, Lucas Philip Tindall.

Eugenie, one of Prince Andrew’s two daughters, was pictured arriving at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, for the service just before 4pm on Sunday.

The Queen, wearing a lime green hat, was later photographed leaving the ceremony in the backseat of a black Range Rover just before 5pm.

Other royals who reportedly attended were Prince Andrew and Prince William and Kate.

The Queen had until recently been resting for nearly a month on the advice of a doctor.

She underwent preliminary tests in hospital during an overnight stay on 20 October, and was forced to pull out of the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph on 14 November due to a back strain.

It was understood the Queen’s back sprain was unrelated to the recent medical advice for her to rest.
