Zara Tindall gives up royal tradition in favour of cousin Princess Eugenie's baby son


Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie were revealed to have held a joint service at Windsor in November with a restricted number of guests, including the Queen. While little details are known about the ceremony, the youngest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of York revealed her baby son August was able to follow in a special Royal Family tradition. Eugenie made the revelation as she shared pictures highlighting the best and worse moments of her 2021 before the turn of the year.

Royally Us commentators Christina Garibaldi and Christine Ross suggested the royal came to an agreement with older cousin Zara for August to don the christening gown traditionally worn by royal babies at baptism.

Ms Ross said: “We saw a behind-the-scenes look at that double Christening which I think was so exciting to see a snapshot.

“I know there was a lot of people wondering who wore the royal Christening gown because you had Lucas and you had August.

“There’s obviously only one very famous Christening gown so who got to wear it?”

Zara Tindall and Princess Eugenie opted for a private ceremony at All Saints Chapel in the Royal Lodge at Windsor in November 2021.

The Queen was in attendance, as were Princess Anne and Prince Andrew, respectively Zara’s mother and Eugenie’s father.

In the photo Princess Eugenie released, the royal can be seen holding her baby son with husband Jack Brooksbank standing by her side.

In the background, Zara and her husband Mike Tindall can also be seen with their young son Lucas wearing a simple white Christening outfit.
