August, the son of Princess Eugenie of York and Jack Brooksbank, aged nine months, and Lucas, the son of Zara and Mike Tindall, aged eight months, were baptized this Sunday in the presence of Queen Elizabeth II, who despite the fact that a week ago absent at the last moment of the acts on the occasion of Remembrance Day due to a back injury, this time he has been able to be with his family on such a special date, in the All Saints Royal Chapel at Windsor Castle. It attracted attention because the princess Beatriz did not take advantage of this celebration and that the entire Royal Family was gathered to also baptize her baby, Sienna, fruit of her marriage to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, born on September 18. One of the reasons that are pointed out is that the girl is very small, he is only two months old, and it is possible that their parents felt that neither they nor their daughter were prepared yet for such a great event, since real babies usually receive the sacrament of baptism when they are around three or four months old, as did the sons of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Prince Louis, so Beatrice might be waiting a little longer.
Another reason could be because the Princess wanted to follow in her mother’s footsteps, Sarah Ferguson. According People, the former Duchess of York waited for prince Andrew to return from work as naval flight commander, before baptizing the princess Eugenia, that I already had nine monthswhile the princess Beatriz fulfilled four months the day of your christening. Both Eugenia and Beatriz seem to be imitating their mother when it comes to their babies. In 1988 it took the Duke and Duchess of York two weeks to confirm Princess Beatrice’s name. Both Eugenia and her sister too they waited two weeks before revealing the names of their children to the public. Another theory that is being considered in relation to why Princess Beatrice delays Sienna’s christening would have to do with sanitary restrictions imposed on the occasion of COVID-19.
Unlike his sister Eugenia, Beatriz had celebrate her wedding with a small private ceremony due to the regulations imposed by the coronavirus, a “I do” that made history in the British Royal Family, becoming the first secret link of the Royal Family in 235 years and also in the first what is celebrated in times of pandemic. The Princess and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi were married in a ceremony where they had to maintain social distance at All Saints’ Royal Chapel at Royal Lodge, Windsor, on Friday July 17, 2020. They had originally planned a larger wedding for May of that year but sadly they had to rearrange it. Now that the restrictions are being lifted little by little, we wonder if Beatriz is waiting to be able to celebrate a larger christening for your little one. On such an eventful day, Sienna, twelfth great-granddaughter of Elizabeth II, could use Honiton’s lace christening gown, which was made for Queen Victoria’s daughter in 1841. The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and many more royals were baptized with the very special family heirloom.
