Queen Elizabeth attended the baptism of her grandchildren

LONDON – Queen Elizabeth attended a private ceremony to celebrate the baptism of two of her great-grandchildren on Sunday, the British news agency PA reported, four days after the 95-year-old monarch made her first public appearance since a hospital stay .

Buckingham Palace has no comment on the report.

The Queen spent a night in hospital for the first time last month for what the palace called “preliminary investigations” into an unspecified illness, and doctors have advised her to cancel most engagements since then.

She withdrew from a Remembrance Day ceremony on November 14 with a sprained back, which a palace source said was not connected to the condition, which required calm and was an unfortunate coincidence.

On November 17, she was pictured standing and laughing in her Windsor Castle home as she spoke with the Chief of Defense Staff.

Sunday’s private ceremony, which took place at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, was to celebrate two family baptisms, according to the PA report.

One was by the baby son of Princess Eugenie, daughter of the third child of Queen Prince Andrew. The other was the third child, a son, by Zara Tindall, daughter of the second child of Queen Princess Anne.
