Mike Tindall gushes joint royal christening with Eugenie was ‘lovely’

Mike Tindall has shared some details about the double royal christening of Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall’s sons.

The ceremony, which saw Euegenie’s son August and Zara’s son Lucas baptised, took place at All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park and was attended by the Queen.

Speaking on his podcast, The Good, the Bad & The Rugby, former rugby player Mike revealed how everyone attending had a “lovely day”, the Daily Mirror reports.

He told co-presenter Alex Payne: "I had a great weekend, a great few days. We had the christening on Sunday, it was lovely. It was a lovely day."

Alex then asked Mike if young Lucas had enjoyed his dunking in the holy water when he was christened.

And Mike revealed: “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 Queen attended the christening ceremony on Sunday after she pulled out of a string of public events in recent weeks.

The christening was led by Canon Martin Poll, who is chaplain to Great Windsor Park and took place in the private Grade-II listed church which forms part of the Royal Lodge house.

It is thought it was the first time two royal babies were christened together.

Eugenie wore a silk white dress featuring embroidered detail, a headband and a blue pendant necklace, while husband, Jack Brooksbank, wore a navy suit, crisp white shirt and light blue, patterned tie.

Zara opted for a black outfit and dangling pearl earrings as she drove herself to the venue, while Mike arrived in a separate vehicle dressed in a blazer.
