The Queen had previously said she was determined to attend the joint firstborn ceremony for Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall – although it is not clear if she is present today.

She told courtiers that she was determined to attend the christening of Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas Phillip and Eugenie’s son August.

She is recovering from a sprained back that forced her to miss last week’s Remembrance Sunday service.

Doctors recently advised him to step down from his official duties after a night in the hospital.

But the Queen was back to her normal duties when she met General Sir Nick Carter, Chief of the Defense Staff, at Windsor Castle last week.

Radiant Eugenie and happy-looking Jack were among the first to arrive at the ceremony, held at All Saints Chapel in Great Windsor Park, Berks.

The unusual joint ceremony could be the first of its kind for the royal household.

Commentator Penny Junor said: “I have never heard of two royal babies baptized together like this.”

She added: “The Queen is very spiritual, a baptism is a very important occasion for the head of the Church of England and being there will be of great importance to her.

“She loves Zara and Mike a lot, and Eugenie too.”

August, the son of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, was born in February and was due to be baptized in July before the event was canceled due to Covid.

He will be baptized alongside Lucas Philip, the son of Mike and Zara Tindall, born in March.

Fresh holy water from Prince Charles’s trip to Jordan should be used during the service.

Charles would bring back a dozen bottles from the Jordan, where Jesus was baptized, for future royal baptisms.

The ceremony is led by Canon Martin Poll, who is Chaplain of Great Windsor Park.

It takes place in the Grade II listed private church which is part of the Royal Lodge house – the former home of the Queen Mother currently occupied by Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Fergie.
