Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank will have to wait a little longer for their son August Brooksbank's christening! As Hello! UK reports, Eugenie and Jack made the decision to put the event on hold after learning that someone who planned to attend ended up having to quarantine.
Eugenie moves christening date due to guest isolation
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank reportedly planned to hold August's christening ceremony on July 10. It would have taken place in Windsor at the Royal Chapel of All Saints— the venue that hosted Eugenie's sister Beatrice's wedding last year.
However, Eugenie and Jack called off the event after learning that an unnamed individual on the guest list was required to self-isolate. According to The Sun, it's unclear whether or not the affected person contracted COVID-19 or if they were simply in close contact with someone who had it.
Eugenie latest royal to have plans impacted by pandemic
Eugenie and Jack's christening ceremony for their son was expected to be a relatively intimate affair, with a maximum of 30 guests. They have now decided to move both August's christening and the reception planned afterwards— which was reportedly set to be held at the Royal Lodge— to a later date.
Other royals have also had their plans impacted by COVID-19 over the past year. The wedding of Eugenie's sister Princess Beatrice and Eduardo Mapelli Mozzi was delayed several times before the two secretly married last July. And recently, Duchess Kate has had to quarantine after coming into close contact with someone who has coronavirus, missing several royal events!
