The British Royal Family is expecting another child this year and we are NOT referring to William and Kate’s.
So much attention is always on Charles the next in line for the throne along with his two boys William and Harry. With Prince William and Kate preparing for their third child along with Prince Harry’s engagement to Meghan Markel it’s easy to forget that the Queen has six other grandchildren.
So What Gives with Another Royal Baby?
So how does Zara fit into the royal family tree? She is the daughter of Princess Anne who is Queen Elizabeth’s only daughter she is also the second eldest grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip of Edinburg. Zara is an Olympic equestrian who won a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
The Queen’s granddaughter is married to former English rugby player Mike Tindall. The two married in July 2011 shortly after William and Kate walked down the aisle. Zara and Mike had a “low key’ wedding at the Canongate Kirk in Scotland, the polar opposite of the big royal wedding that took place for William and Kate.
A spokesperson for the palace said the Queen and the Royal family were “very pleased” to hear the news.
This is such great news after the tragic blow they had to endure after Zara’s miscarriage. Mike had opened up about how they were coping after the loss saying, “One thing you do learn is how many other people have to go through the same thing. The saving grace for us has been Mia. However down we feel, she will come running up in our faces.”
It is believed that Zara is due this summer so we don’t have to worry that it could possibly overshadow the arrival of William and Kate’s baby who is due to arrive in April.
The British Monarchy now has a third reason to celebrate this year!
