Mike Tindall lays bare sweet details from Sunday’s ‘lovely’ double royal christening

ZARA TINDALL’s husband, Mike, has spoken out about the rare double royal christening which took place on Sunday, baptising both their son Lucas and Princess Eugenie’s son August.

However, reports show Her Majesty was present to see the christening of nine-month-old August and eight-month-old Lucas which took place at All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park.

Details surrounding the baptism have been spilled by former rugby player Mike on his podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby where he said all attendees had a “lovely day”.

He told co-presenter Alex Payne: “I had a great weekend, a great few days.

“It was a lovely day.”

Mr Payne asked the former rugby player whether his son enjoyed being plunged into the holy water during the ceremony.

Mike replied: “He did actually.

“I took him swimming in the morning, I think I readied him for it, he was quite looking forward to it.”

The unprecedented double baptism was led by Canon Martin Poll, who is chaplain to Great Windsor Park, and took place in the private Grade-II listed church.

The Queen was pictured leaving the Berkshire chapel in a stylish bright green hat.

The christening took place a 15-minute drive from Windsor Castle, where the Queen is in residence, and it is one of the few events she has attended in person after doctors advised her to rest.

Lucas Tindall, born in March, is the third child of Zara and Mike while Eugenie and Jack welcomed August Brooksbank, their first child, in February.

Both royal children share the middle name Philip as a tribute to their late great-grandfather who sadly passed away in April aged 99.
