Queen Elizabeth Attends Christening Of Princess Eugenie & Zara Tindall's Sons At Royal Chapel Of All Saints
Queen Elizabeth was spotted leaving her home to attend Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall's sons, August and Lucas, christening on Sunday, November 21.
The ceremony took place at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Berkshire, and a source told The Sun the 95-year-old had been "keen to attend such a wonderful event."
“It’s set to be a heartwarming family occasion and a time of great celebration after what has been some challenging times for certain royals of late, including the Queen herself,” the insider shared.
The event was unusual for the royal family, expert Penny Junor noted.

“I’ve never heard of two royal babies being christened together like this," she said. "The Queen is very spiritual, a christening is a very important occasion for the head of the Church of England and being there will be of great importance to her. She’s very fond of Zara and Mike, and Eugenie too.”
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank welcomed their son in February, while Zara gave birth to Lucas exactly one month later.
After the Queen was hospitalized for one night in October, the public has been concerned about her health.
The mom-of-four was supposed to attend an event in mid-November, but she ended up canceling the plans at the last minute.
"The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph," a statement read. "Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service. As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by The Prince of Wales. His Royal Highness, along with The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, The Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned."
Since then, she has been back on her feet, as she hosted two meetings — one in-person and one virtual — this past week.
