With Kate Middleton and Prince William expecting the third-in-line to the throne this week, cousin Zara Phillips has also just made a joyous announcement that she too is expecting her first child with husband Mike Tindall.
The couple who married in July 2011 are expecting the next Royal baby in the New Year and according to reports both sets of parents, including Princess Anne and Capt Mark Phillips, are said to be “delighted” with the news.
The Olympic silver medalist however is said to not be slowing down in any shape or form and will continue to compete in forthcoming equestrian events, taking part recently in the Barbury International Horse Trails.
The Tindalls were also in attendance at the Royal box at Wimbledon last week where they looked extremely happy.
This will be The Queen’s forth great-grandchild, as Zara’s brother Peter already has two children with wife autumn, as well as the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William’s baby which is due any day.
