The queen was seen in a lime green hat after she was at a rare double royal christening in Windsor tonight.

Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall hosted their sons’ joint baptism at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire.

The private service was attended by immediate family members and close friends.

It comes a few days after the Queen returned to public duties after a brief break on the advice of a doctor.

She had been resting for almost a month after preliminary examinations at the hospital and was forced to withdraw from the Remembrance Sunday service at Cenotaph after straining her back.

Eugenie, daughter of the Duke of York, was pictured when she arrived at the Royal Residence in Windsor just before noon.

Her son August, shared with husband Jack Brooksbank, was baptized along with Mike and Zara Tindall’s son Lucas Philip.

Other royals who reportedly attended were the Duke of York and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Photographs showed the queen leaving the service in a black Range Rover around 6 p.m.

Earlier in the week, she held a face-to-face audience with the outgoing Chief of the Armed Forces, General Sir Nick Carter, marking her return to official engagements.
