ROYAL BAPTISM CRIES ARE BROADCAST

Princess Eugenie Victoria Helena of York, the youngest grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, was the noisy center of attention Sunday at her baptism.

The cries of the daughter of Prince Andrew and the former Sarah Ferguson were heard not only by about 130 people inside the church of St. Mary Magdalen on the queen's estate, but also by an estimated 1,500 people listening to loudspeakers outside.

The princess, born March 23, was believed to be the first member of the royal family baptized in a public service. She wore the silk and Honerton lace christening robe first worn by Queen Victoria's eldest daughter and by all royal babies since.
