Mike Tindall spills the beans on the ‘beautiful’ double royal christening that took place on Sunday.

Mike Tindall, ZARA TINDALL’s husband, has spoken out about the unprecedented double royal christening that occurred on Sunday, when their son Lucas and Princess Eugenie’s son August were both baptized.

The low-key occasion took place on Sunday, and the Queen, who has been unable to attend several recent engagements due to health concerns, was present. Following an overnight stay in a London hospital, the 95-year-old monarch was forced to cancel her presence at the United Nations’ COP26 climate meeting in Glasgow.

After spraining her back, Buckingham Palace stated that the Queen would be canceling her Remembrance Day ceremony “with great grief.”

Her Majesty was, however, present at the christening of nine-month-old August and eight-month-old Lucas at All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park, according to sources.

Former rugby player Mike spilled the beans about the baptism on his podcast The Good, The Bad, and The Rugby, saying that everyone who attended had a “wonderful day.”

“I had a terrific weekend, a great few days,” he told co-host Alex Payne.

“On Sunday, we had the christening, which was amazing.

“It was a beautiful day.”

Mr Payne inquired of the former rugby player about his son’s reaction to being immersed in holy water during the rite.

“He did, in fact,” Mike responded.

“I took him swimming in the morning, and I suppose I prepared him for it; he was quite excited.”

Canon Martin Poll, the chaplain of Great Windsor Park, officiated at the historic double baptism, which took place at the private Grade-II listed church.

The Queen was photographed wearing a fashionable bright green bonnet as she left the Berkshire chapel.

The christening was held a 15-minute drive from Windsor Castle, the Queen’s official residence, and it was one of the few ceremonies she has attended in person since physicians urged her to rest.

Zara and Mike’s third kid, Lucas Tindall, was born in March, while Eugenie and Jack’s first child, August Brooksbank, was born in February.

Both royal children were given the middle name Philip in honor of their late great-grandfather, who died in April at the age of 99.
