I had no idea that Lena had not yet been baptized. It was nice to see the Family gathering for this event, including her maternal grandfather. Why are Mike's parents not present?
Meghan looked tired.

Harry said in an interview at one point he has 6 godchildren I think. We know four of them.

three were in his wedding:
-Jasper Dyer
-Zalie Warren
-Florence Van Cutsem

And he is also godfather to Tiggy's older son Fred. Since Fred is 16, he was a bit too old obviously.

They may have been--we only know who was shown in the photographs the DM chose to publish.

I assume others were there and just not photographed. I'd be shocked if both sets of grandparents weren't. And Peter and Autumn.

The church doesn't have a Saturday service, according to their calendar: https://www.achurchnearyou.com/churc...lendar/2019/3/



And everybody was kinda busy on Saturday with the rugby

That church, St Nicholas Church in Cherington, is absolutely beautiful. Its everything I would imagine an old countryside church to be. I prefer churches like this over any of the ornate abbeys and cathedrals or the modern glass and metal ones.
Is this their local parish church? Was Mia christened in the same church?

Mia was christened at St Nicholas Church in the village of Cherington.

Hellomagazine also has an article about the christening, including a photo of Autumn, Mia, Isla and Savannah:

It seems that Savannah spotted the paparazzi
It looks like a lovely christening and I'm glad that it was still quite private given the amount of senior royals in attendance. The Cambridges always attend St. Patrick's Day without fail so am not surprised to see their absence.

This weekend really wasn’t the best time for many royals, Anne, Tim and Harry had engagements on Saturday and Charles, Camilla, William and Catherine on Sunday. The first group was essential, so Sunday it was. I expect the Cambridge family joined them in the afternoon.
I’m actually surprised Mike had a Christening on a big rugby weekend.

The rugby was on Saturday so Sunday was free.

Most CoE churches hold Christenings on a Sunday after or during the normal Sunday services.

Did Lena wear the replica of the Honiton christening gown that has been used by many royal babies?

Exactly. That is why I inquired if it was the replica of the christening gown.

I would imagine a Big Mike hug is also part of the attraction for Zara.

He is a very affectionate father in public and it seems genuine. I hope so. I want this family to thrive for a very long time.

The photo of Mike with Lena were the best. Such a sweet daddy/daughter moment.

But you can see he is the kind of dad who might look like a bear, but he is a teddy when it comes to his daughters. I always love the photos of him and Mia when they are out watching Zara ride. Its always clear Mia has daddy wrapped around her little finger. And now Lena has joined that.
