Buckingham Palace confirmed the news on Tuesday releasing a statement, “Mrs. Michael Tindall was safely delivered of a baby girl on 18th June, at Stroud Maternity Unit. Mr. Tindall was present at the birth. The weight of the baby was 9lbs 3oz.”
“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Mike’s parents, Mr. Philip and Mrs. Linda Tindall, have been informed and are delighted with the news. The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course.
“This baby is the second child for Zara and Mike, the fourth grandchild for Princess Royal and the seventh great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.”
This is happy news for the couple after a trying time. Zara was previously with child and revealed she had suffered a miscarriage just before the Christmas holiday in 2016.

Mike had said what got him and his family through their loss was their daughter Mia. “The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter who is now 3,” Mike told The Sunday Times in May 2017. “However down we feel she will come running up in our faces. When I was playing I hardly saw her; now we can see her grow up. I can take her swimming and I can take her to Ninja Tots. You’ll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke.”
Zara’s baby girl can now hang out and have play dates with her cousin Prince Louis who was born on April 23. As Prince William and Prince Harry’s cousin, Zara is close to William, Harry, and Kate. She is often spotted at royal events with the threesome chatting and laughing it up with Kate. Now Louis and Zara’s daughter can share laughs of their own growing up alongside each other.
