Many royal fans were left wondering why Beatrice didn't christen Sienna back in November alongside Eugenie's son August and Zara and Mike Tindall's son Lucas, who were baptised together in the presence of the Queen at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor.

But Sienna was just two months old at the time, and it is likely she may have wanted to wait a little longer to christen her child, following in the footsteps of her mother – who christened Beatrice when she was four months and Eugenie when she was nine months.

Shortly after the birth, a family friend of the couple explained the sweet meaning behind the name Sienna.

"They were looking for an Italian name which started with an S for Sarah, to honour the Duchess [Sarah Ferguson], and also reflected the golden rust colour of both the Duchess's hair colour and Beatrice's, which the new baby shares," they said.
