This weekend, the Windsors They have had a double celebration, with the babies of the family as protagonists. August and Luke, the youngest great-grandchildren of Elizabeth II (not counting Lilibet Diana), received the baptismal waters in the Chapel of All Saints, in Windsor Great Park.
It has been intimate, but we have been able to see something … For example, the dress that princess eugenie He has chosen for the christening of his son and that it has not been difficult to identify despite having only an image of the happy mother arriving at the place by car.
The design is striking and, of course, original. It is Zimmermann, an Australian fashion firm founded by sisters Nicky and Simone, which has become a favorite of many royals. Rania from Jordan, Maxima from Holland, Mette-Marit and Meghan Markle, among others, have dressed their creations. Too Beatrice of York, who wore a dress by the brand to announce her engagement to Edoardo Mapelli two years ago.
Now, her sister opts for a white model with folk air embroidery on the neck, sleeves, waist and skirt. It is asymmetrical and has fringes edging the hem, as if it were a tunic. It is for sale on some multi-brand websites for 1,019 euros. She paired it with a white headband, which, as we know, is one of the youngest’s favorite accessories. Andrew from England and Sarah Ferguson.
Eugenia’s look at her son’s christening inevitably reminds us of that of Sofia from Sweden for the baptism of little Julian, which was held last August in the Drottningholm Palace Church. Carlos Felipe’s wife also decided on a very folk style with a white design with Etro flowers to which she added a very striking XL bow headband. Was the Princess of York inspired by her for her little one’s big day? As for her husband, Jack Brooksbank, he was sporting a smart navy blue suit, white shirt, and a light blue patterned tie.
The other protagonists
Zara and Mike tindall they were the other protagonists of the ceremony, as they also baptized Lucas. The daughter of Princess Anne of England shared with her cousin that special day for both of them, since their babies are only one month old. He arrived at church driving a black Range Rover and with a very different look than Eugenia: she was more discreet with a black outfit and pearl earrings.
Who did not go unnoticed for various reasons was the great protagonist of the event: the queen Isabel II. Despite concerns about her health, she did not want to miss the baptism of her two great-grandchildren and chose a pistachio green coat with a matching hat. It was unmistakable when she was seen appearing in the car … And the look is also curious because it is the same one she chose on June 14, 2018 when she starred in her first official public appearance with Meghan Markle, after her wedding to Prince Harry.
Speaking of the Dukes of Sussex, nothing is known at the moment of the christening of the little girl Lilibet Diana, and the British sovereign has not had the opportunity to meet the little girl, who is already five months old. The couple are not expected to travel to England for Christmas, so for now the situation is not likely to change.
The double christening of August and Lucas It was a special event for the queen and it was celebrated in the strictest privacy. Eugenia and her husband had planned this ceremony for the month of July, at Windsor Castle, but the plans were thwarted when one of the guests was informed that he had been in contact with a positive for coronavirus. They had to postpone it and finally decided to do it together with Zara. Both royal babies are believed to have been baptized with the holy water that Prince Charles collected on his recent trip to Jordan. In fact, Camilla’s husband was photographed collecting water from this river with several bottles with which he returned to the United Kingdom with the intention of being used in baptisms.
