The baptism was led by Canon Martin Poll, who is chaplain of Great Windsor Park and took place in the Grade II listed private church which is part of the Royal Lodge house.
It is believed to be the first time that two royal babies have been baptized together.
Eugenie wore a white silk dress with embroidered details, a headband and a blue pendant necklace, while Jack wore a navy blue suit, a crisp white shirt and a light blue patterned tie.
Zara opted for a black outfit and dangling pearl earrings as she drove to the location. Mike, 43, arrived in a separate vehicle dressed in a blazer.
On Monday, a day after the baptism, the sad news was revealed that Jack’s father George died days before the ceremony.
The 72-year-old man suffered from Covid last year and had been ill for some time.
A royal insider said Online Mail : “George had been hospitalized with Covid and was not the same after that.”
While another said it was “wonderful” for George to have been alive to see August, nine months old, born in February.
