Royal delight as Zara and Mike Tindall reveal great baby news

By Laura Elston

A new royal baby is on its way after Zara and Mike Tindall announced they are expecting a second child.

The Queen is "delighted" at the news of her sixth great-grandchild, as are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Equestrian champion Zara - the monarch's granddaughter - and former England rugby player Tindall are said to be thrilled at the prospect of a brother or sister for their daughter Mia, who is nearly three.

The new baby, due around late spring, will be a second cousin of George and Charlotte, but will be born way down the line of succession - 18th in line to the throne.

The couple's spokeswoman said: "Mike and Zara are expecting another baby."

Buckingham Palace said the Queen and the royal family, who are due to gather together at Sandringham at Christmas, were overjoyed by Zara's pregnancy.

"The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and members of the royal family are delighted with the news," a palace spokesman said.
