United Kingdom queen misses christening of William and Kate's baby son


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be joined by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at the christening. Older brother Prince George walked in holding Prince William's other hand, while Duchess Kate carried their baby brother in his heirloom lace christening gown.

The Queen, 92, has a busy week ahead, with high-profile celebrations in central London marking the centenary of the RAF on Tuesday, and a visit by US President Donald Trump in Windsor on Friday. William and Kate were to host a private tea afterwards.
