Despite a recent health scare, Queen Elizabeth II is determined to attend the joint baptism of her great-grandchildren on Sunday.
According to The Sun, the 95-year-old monarch is “eager to attend such a wonderful event” for Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall’s respective sons, August and Lucas, at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Berkshire, England.

“She knows how important this is for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It’s set to be a heartwarming family occasion and a time of real celebration after what has been some challenging times for certain royals of late, including the Queen herself,” the source shared.
The joint baptism of August, 9 months, and Lucas, 8 months, is said to be a royal first.
The event will be held one day after the Queen’s 74th wedding anniversary with her late husband, Prince Philip, who died in April at the age of 99.
August and Lucas were both given the middle name Philip in honor of their late great-grandfather, which made the timing of their baptism all the more poignant.
Eugenie’s father, Prince Andrew, and mother, Sarah Ferguson, are expected to attend, as is the princess’ cousin, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton.
Eugenie Brooksbank, 31, and her husband, brand ambassador Jack Brooksbank, welcomed their first child, August, in February. He is the first child of the couple.

Lucas was born in March to Tindall, 40. She and her husband, former rugby player Mike Tindall, have two daughters, Mia, 7, and Lena, 3.
If the Queen does attend the baptism on Sunday, it will be her first public appearance since spending a night in the hospital on Oct. 20. While she has been ordered to rest, the monarch has continued to carry out royal duties from her residence.
