After a month’s long absence from the public eye, the Queen was finally seen attending a rare double christening, at Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire.

The baptism was of her great-grandchildren—August Philip Hawke Brooksbank and Lucas Philip Tindall.

Double christening

Sporting a lime green hat in an emerald Range Rover, the monarch was seen leaving the venue of the christening, around 5pm on Sunday evening.

The double christening was of Prince Andrew’s daughter, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's first baby, August, and, Zara and Mike Tindall's third child, Lucas.

The revered rugby player, Mike Tindall, said that his third child had a special delivery. He said that his son:

Arrived very quickly. Didn't make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor.

Prince Andrew, the Dutch and Duchess of Cambridge also attended the royal ceremony.

Break from the paps

The 95-year-old monarch observed a rather rough month, from running preliminary tests in hospitals on 20 October, to missing the Sunday church service for the first time.

The Queen seemingly took a month-long detox from media, to what might look like, nursing back her health. The absence of the Queen exacerbated concerns that her health was worsening less than a year after her husband, Prince Philip, died at the age of 99.

Prince Charles told Sky News:

She’s all right, thank you very much. Once you get to 95, it’s not quite as easy as it used to be. It’s bad enough at 73.

On the eve of the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow, Her Majesty held a reception for business executives at Windsor. She reportedly resumed her royal duties last Wednesday, when she bid farewell to the outgoing head of the armed forces, General Sir Nick Carter.
