Harry made godfather to Zara's daughter as he and Meghan attend christening

by Press Association

Harry and Meghan, who are just weeks away from the arrival of their first child, joined the royals at the baptism of nine-month-old Lena in Gloucestershire.

The Queen, who did not attend Prince Louis's christening last July because it came ahead of a busy week of high-profile events, was among the guests at St Nicholas Church in Cherington at the weekend.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were not there, and neither was the Duke of Edinburgh, who is spending much of his retirement at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate, the Daily Mail reported.

Heavily pregnant Meghan, whose first child is due at the end of next month, wore a navy beret and a vintage 1950s double-breasted silk brown Dior coat for the private occasion.

Lena's proud parents, equestrian champion Zara and former England rugby star Mike Tindall, were joined by Zara's parents the Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips, who divorced in 1992.

The youngest member of the Tindall family - a sister to five-year-old Mia - was christened Lena Elizabeth, with her second name a tribute to her great-grandmother the Queen.

Meghan has carried out her final scheduled public engagement before the birth of her baby, but is still working behind the scenes privately, holding meetings with the charities she supports.

A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
