Zara Tindall abandons royal tradition in order to care for her cousin Princess Eugenie’s baby son.


Zara Tindall foregoes royal tradition in order to care for her cousin Princess Eugenie’s newborn son.

After Princess Eugenie shared personal photos of their joint christening ceremony for their sons, ZARA Tindall appeared to abandon a special royal tradition in favor of her cousin Princess Eugenie.

Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie held a joint service at Windsor in November in front of a small group of guests, including the Queen.

While few details about the ceremony are known, the Duke and Duchess of York’s youngest daughter revealed that her baby son August was able to participate in a unique Royal Family tradition.

Eugenie made the announcement just before the new year, when she shared photos of her 2021’s best and worst moments.

Christina Garibaldi and Christine Ross of Royally Us speculated that the royal and her older cousin Zara had reached an agreement for August to wear the christening gown traditionally worn by royal babies at baptism.

“We got a behind-the-scenes look at that double Christening,” Ms Ross said.

“I know a lot of people were curious as to who wore the royal Christening gown because you had Lucas and August.”

“Of course, there’s only one famous Christening gown, so who gets to wear it?”

“Turns out it was Princess Eugenie’s son frills and laces up to his chin,” she continued.

“And seeing those very intimate photos was just lovely.”

“It’s always so nice when they peel back the curtain a little bit and we can see what goes on behind the scenes,” Ms Garibaldi agreed.

“Clearly, a lovely way to end the year.”

Queen Victoria commissioned the royal Christening gown for the birth of her eldest daughter Princess Victoria, Princess Royal, in 1841.

The gown, along with the silver-gilt Lily Font used in all services except Princess Eugenie’s in 1990, is one of the most important traditional elements of a royal baptism.

Following the Christening of granddaughter Lady Louise Windsor, the Queen was forced to commission a copy of the original from her trusted dressmaker Angela Kelly.

James, Viscount Severn, Lady Louise’s younger brother, was the first member of the Royal Family to wear the new gown in 2008.
