The happy news was confirmed by the royal family with an official 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 9 lbs 3oz.

“This baby is the second child for Zara and Mike, the fourth grandchild for The Princess Royal and the seventh great-grandchild for The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.”

The couple have not yet revealed their daughter’s name but another announcement will be made “in due course”.

The couple are parents to 4-year-old daughter Mia Tindall.

The happy news comes more than one year after Zara revealed she suffered a miscarriage, just days before Christmas in December 2016.

The newest addition to the royal family joins cousin Prince Louis, who was born on April 23. Zara and Kate Middleton appeared together during their third trimesters earlier this year. The royal mums, both 36, stepped out in Windsor, England, on Easter Sunday to attend church with the rest of the royal family at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

A heavily pregnant Zara also attended Prince Harry’s nuptials to Meghan Markle on May 19 but little Mia did not serve as a flower girl in the ceremony.
