Queen attends rare royal double christening at Windsor

The Queen was pictured in Windsor after attending a rare royal double christening.

On Sunday evening, the 95-year-old head of state was spotted wearing a lime green hat as she left the christening of two of her grandchildren at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire.

The son of Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, August, were baptized along with Mikes and Zara Tindall’s son Lucas Philip, PA.

Immediate members of the royal family and close friends banded together for the service, and the queen’s presence came after a brief break from public duties on the advice of a doctor.

Eugenie, the Duke of York’s daughter, arrived at the royal residence in Windsor just before 4 p.m. on Sunday, while the Queen was photographed in the back seat of a black Range Rover just before 5 p.m.

Other royals reportedly attending were the Duke of York and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The occasion marks the first time in modern history that Britain has had a double royal baptism.

In 2011, the twins of Crown Prince Prince Vincent and Princess Josephine were baptized together in Denmark.

By that week, on the advice of a doctor, the Queen had rested for almost a month.

The monarch had undergone preliminary examinations in the hospital and had to cancel the memorial service at the cenotaph due to back strain.

On Wednesday, the Queen held a personal audience with the outgoing Chief of the Armed Forces, General Sir Nick Carter, on her first official engagement since hiatus.
