Noticeably missing is Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip. The two did not attend today's services, but why?
Buckingham Palace confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that the christening is a fairly small service, so guests only included immediate family and godparents. They also revealed that that decision was “mutually agreed upon some time ago” for them not to attend.
