In the weeks leading up to his baptism, Princess Eugenie defied royal tradition twice with her baby boy.
PRINCESS EUGENIE and her husband Jack Brooksbank’s son will be christened today, but on the day he was born, his parents broke royal tradition.
Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall will christen their babies in a joint ceremony this weekend, after Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their first child August in February.
Meanwhile, Zara and her husband Mike welcomed their third child, Lucas, in March.
Both will be baptized at Windsor Great Park’s Royal Chapel of All Saints.
After being forced to miss last weekend’s Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph due to a sprained back, the Queen is determined to be present.
Her Majesty is “very keen” to attend, according to The Sun, because she “knows how important this is for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.”
Royal christenings are usually a lavish affair, full of joy, and often accompanied by a slew of official photographs and a long history.
Eugenie and her husband, on the other hand, eschewed tradition when August was born earlier this year.
Royal babies usually make their first public appearance hours after they are born, outside the hospital.
This tradition was followed by Princess Diana, Sarah Ferguson, and the Duchess of Cambridge.
However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle declined.
Instead, they held an interview and a photocall to introduce Archie to the world.
Eugenie and Jack took a more modern royal approach, introducing August to the world via Instagram.
Eugenie shared a beautiful black-and-white photo of her and Jack’s hands cradling August’s tiny fingers and arm on Tuesday, February 9.
She added three blue hearts and two exclamation marks to the heartwarming photo as a caption.
The post has over 530,000 likes and nearly 19,000 comments.
Royal births have previously been announced within hours, if not minutes.
Eugenie, on the other hand, was born ten hours later.
Meghan’s arrival was confirmed eight hours after Archie was born, so it was one of the later announcements.
“Her Royal Highness Princess Eugenie was safely delivered of a son today, 9 February 2021, at 0855 hours at The Portland Hospital,” according to a statement.
“Jack Brooksbank was in attendance.”
The baby is 8 pounds and 1 ounce.”
Eugenie and August were “doing well,” according to the statement, and the rest of the family was overjoyed.
