Lena Tindall christened in private ceremony
On March 17, Lena Tindall, the second daughter and child of Princess Anne’s daughter Zara and her husband Mike Tindall was christened in a private ceremony at St. Nicholas’s Church in Cherington, Gloucestershire, near the Gatcombe Estate.
The Duke of Sussex was reported to be one of Lena’s godparents, as he attended the christening with his wife Meghan, who is due to give birth next month. The Queen and other members of the family were also in attendance including Zara’s father Mark Phillips, who was divorced from Princess Anne in 1992.
Lena Elizabeth Tindall was born on 18 June 2018 at the Stroud Maternity Unit in Gloucestershire. She has an older sister, Mia Grace Tindall, who was born in 2014. Her parents married in 2011 at the Canongate Kirk in Scotland.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as the Duke of Edinburgh were notably absent from the christening, which Rev. Dr. Gerald South, who conducted the service, described as “lovely”.
