Her Majesty attended the ceremony at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Great Park. Her attendance at the christening of her two great-grandchildren follows a last-minute cancellation at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday as she suffered from a sprained back.
It was originally feared the monarch had to pull out of the special event after she was not spotted arriving at the church. Buckingham Palace had remained tight-lipped about the Queen’s plans, but insiders have confirmed Her Majesty made the service.
Being able to witness the baptism of Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie’s children is believed to mean a lot to the monarch.
Doctors then ordered her to rest. It is thought that sharing this special moment makes up for the disappointment the Queen has felt as a result of having to step back from some of her duties.
Commentator Penny Junor said: “I’ve never heard of two royal babies being christened together like this.”
“She’s very fond of Zara and Mike, and Eugenie too.”Concerns over the Queen’s health have been raised in recent weeks after she was forced to pull out of several engagements.
