Princess Eugenie forced to cancel royal christening of baby Augustus after ‘Covid contact’ | Royal | News
The service will reportedly take place on Saturday at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Great Park. But plans did not go ahead after reports claimed the NHS Covid app told an unnamed attendee that he had been in contact with someone or had tested positive. The other royal guests at the christening are believed to be Queen And the Eugenie The parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, who will be hosting the next party at the Royal Lodge.
A source told MailOnline: “One guest tested positive or was stressed due to the Covid connection, so no one else was able to gather.
As a result, they canceled the service and the reception afterwards at the Royal Lodge, Prince Andrew’s home.
“The Queen’s parents, Eugenie Fergie and Prince Andrew were due to attend.”
To celebrate England’s arrival in the Euro 2020 final this evening, Eugenie also posted a photo of August in an England shirt on Instagram.
She did not show his face in the video, but played the three black soccer anthem in the background.
He was also seen kicking his legs on the ground through excitement while filming.
She also tagged England’s official Instagram account in the video.
Meanwhile, other members of the royal family got into the footballing spirit over the weekend.
“You bring out the best in England and we are all behind you.
“The whole country is behind you. So, bring him home.”
The Queen also praised the team’s “spirit, commitment and pride” in a good luck message.
“Fifty-five years ago I was fortunate to present the World Cup to Bobby Moore and see what it means for the players, management and support staff to reach and win the final of one of the major international football tournaments,” she said.
“I want to send you all my congratulations and my family’s congratulations on reaching the European Championship final, and send my good wishes for tomorrow in the hope that history will record not only your success but also the spirit, commitment and pride with which you have treated yourselves.”
