Here's Why Princess Eugenie Postpones Son August's Christening This Weekend

Princess Eugenie has had to postpone the christening for her son, August.

The 30-year-old Princess of York and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, made the decision after they heard one of the attendees for the limited ceremony had been exposed to COVID-19, People reports.

The christening, which was set to take place this coming weekend at All Saint’s Chapel and according to reports, only a small handful of Royal Family members were set to be in attendance, including Queen Elizabeth, and her sister, Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

According to the first reports, which appeared in The Sun on Sunday, it wasn’t known if the guest has COVID-19 or was alerted that they had been in contact with someone who had tested positive.

A source said that “No-one else was able to gather … they called off the ceremony and reception afterwards.”

August Philip Hawke was born in February, just months ahead of Lucas Tindall (Zara Tindall) and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor (Prince Harry). The three make up the ninth, tenth and eleventh of Queen Elizabeth‘s great-grandchildren.
