A photo showed Princess Eugenie and baby August at her christening at the Chapel of All Saints’ Day in Windsor. It was a shared ceremony as Zara Tindall’s new baby, Lucas, was baptized on the same day.
Lucas and August’s christening took place on November 21, 2021, exactly 181 years after the birth of Princess Victoria, the first child of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
Princess Victoria was the first to wear the famous Honiton lace christening gown.
The daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert was baptized in 1841 at Buckingham Palace.
After the ceremony, Queen Victoria noted in her diary: “Albert and I agreed that everything was going beautifully and in a very dignified manner.”

The dress was removed after Lady Louise Mountbatten-Windsor’s christening in 2005.
After that, all royal babies were baptized with a replica.
The design of the dress was inspired by Queen Victoria’s wedding dress.
Crafted from white silk and a handmade lace overlay, the dress was worn by 62 royal babies.
For her son’s christening in November, Princess Eugenie wore a beige silk outfit which she teamed with an elegant cream headband.
The dress, which is from designer ZIMMERMANN, featured a colorful embroidered pattern around the neck.
The Aliane cashmere-embroidered linen canvas dress is still available to buy online for Â£ 1,050.
Her husband Jack Brooksbank wore a navy suit and a light blue tie.
