Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall opted for a joint christening for their sons, Augusts Brooksbank and Lucas Tindall. The children’s celebration brought together Royal Family members including the Queen, in her first family event since being advised to rest by her doctors, and the Duke and Duchess of York. But the ceremony was also attended by an unexpected guest who made a buzz amongst the paparazzi, royal expert Christine Ross said.

Ms Ross told the Royally US podcast: “It was rumoured that the Cambridge family was going to join them but we didn’t see them.

“Interestingly, Princess Eugenie’s good friend Cressida Bonas and her husband were in attendance and Cressida is Prince Harry’s ex.

“I thought that was a very interesting guest to have attended the event.”

Co-presenter Christina Garibaldi replied: “I love how Harry stayed so close with all of his exes like you know a few of them were at his wedding.”

Other than Cressida Bonus and her husband, Princess Anne also attended the double baptism ceremony alongside Princess Eugenie’s parents Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. 

The private event took place on November 21 at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Castle. 

Reports earlier this week suggested the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would also be in attendance but their participation was not confirmed.

Cousins Zara and Eugenie both paid tribute to their late grandfather, Prince Philip, who sadly died earlier this year aged 99.

August’s full name is August Philip Hawke Brooksbank and Lucas is Lucas Philip Tindall.

Royal babies are traditionally given up to four names often drawn from a selected rooster of picks, and it isn’t uncommon for the royals to borrow names from their loved ones.

Mike Tindall expressed his feelings for his son’s much-awaited royal christening saying:  “It was a lovely day. 

The former England rugby played told podcast The Good, The Bad, and the Rugby the 8-month-old also enjoyed having holy water from the River Jordan poured over his head.

“I took him swimming in the morning, so I think I readied him for it.

”He was quite looking forward to it when the water was coming out.”

The holy water was brought back to the UK by Prince Charles, who went on a royal overseas trip to Jordan and Egypt last week.
