The world is waiting with baited breath for news on when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby will be born, but today attention turns to another Royal couple who have announced they are expecting a baby.
The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall have today announced via Buckingham Palace that they are expecting their first child. A spokesperson from Buckingham Palace made the announcement this morning saying, “Mr and Mrs Mike Tindall are very pleased to announce that Zara Tindall is expecting a baby in the New Year.”
Zara is currently 15th in line to the throne and her new baby will slot in immediately behind her in 16th place. The statement from Buckingham Palace went on to say, “The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips, Mr Phillip and Mrs Linda Tindall, and members of both families are delighted with the news. This baby will be the first child for Mike and Zara and the third grandchild for The Princess Royal.”
The Prime Minister was quick to add his congratulations to the happy couple saying it was “quite terrific news”, and everyone here at Hot Gossip would like to echo those comments and add their congratulations to Zara and Mike Tindall as well.
