Who Are Queen Elizabeth's Great-Grandchildren?

Queen Elizabeth attended the christening of two of her great-grandchild recently. The 95-year-old royal stepped out to join family members in celebrating the joint christening of August Brooksbank, son of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and Lucas Tindall, son of Zara and Mike Tindall.

There were limited people in attendance during the baptism held at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor.

Other royals in attendance were Princess Eugenie's parents, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, and Princess Anne. According to The Sun, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were also in attendance.

As joyous as the celebration of welcoming two more royals into Queen Elizabeth's household, what about her great-grandchild across the pond?

Will Queen Elizabeth Attend Lilibet's Christening?

There are several speculations regarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's plans for the christening of their daughter, Lilibet. However, neither of the royal couple has confirmed anything as of yet.

It also remains to be seen if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would still practice the royal baptism, especially since they are not senior royals anymore.

According to a report in October, Queen Elizabeth is likely to miss out on Lilibet's christening. Rumors are also rife that Lilibet would not be baptized in the U.K. under the royal protocol as both her parents have chosen to live as private citizens.

To recall, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son, Archie, was baptized at the Church of England as practiced by the royals before them. So far, no concrete details have been announced regarding Lilibet’s christening.
