Queen attends great-grandchildren’s joint christening despite health concerns

The Queen has attended what is believed to be the Royal family’s first double christening, despite recent concerns for her health.

The 95-year-old monarch joined close family and friends for the christening of two of her great-grandsons as Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall held a joint service for their first-born sons August and Lucas.

The Queen was said to have been determined to attend the ceremony despite a back sprain which saw her forced to pull out of a Remembrance Sunday event last weekend.

She is very fond of her granddaughters and is understood to have not wanted to let illness stop her attending.

She was photographed wearing a green hat and matching jacket as she was driven from the service at the All Saints Chapel in Great Windsor Park, Berkshire on Sunday afternoon.

The chapel is on a private road just a stone’s throw from the Royal Lodge, the residence Prince Andrew shares with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

It is believed that the private ceremony for August Brooksbank and Lucas Tindall is the first time that two royal babies have been baptised together.
