He continued: "We had the christening on Sunday, it was lovely. It was a lovely day."

Asked by Alex if Lucas had enjoyed "dunking", Mike revealed that he had helped his son get ready for the big day by taking him swimming earlier in the morning.

"He did actually," he said, before adding: "I took him swimming in the morning, I think I readied him for it, he was quite looking forward to it but then the water was coming out..."

Lucas was christened alongside his cousin August Philip Brooksbank.

While there were concerns that the Queen, 95, may not be able to make it due to the sprained back that caused her to miss the Remembrance Sunday service, she returned to royal duties in the week and Buckingham Palace has confirmed she was able to attend her great-grandsons' christening.

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank were photographed together on their way to the chapel, while Zara and Mike Tindall arrived separately.

The couple recently celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary

While the family gathering was a joyous occasion for the Queen on a difficult weekend, just a day later it was revealed that Jack had lost his father George on Thursday, three days before the christening.

In Tuesday's Daily Telegraph, the Brooksbank family placed a notice that read: "Brooksbank, George. Died on 18th November. "Loved all the good things in life but especially his wife, friends, boys, daughters-in-law and grandchildren.

"Private family cremation, memorial details to be announced."
