Sixteenth in line to British throne born

  • Print

LONDON -- Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter Zara Phillips has given birth to a baby girl, Buckingham Palace said Friday. The child is 16th in line to the British throne.

The baby was born at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in western England and weighed seven pounds, 12 ounces. The palace said her name would be released "in due course."

This is the first child for Phillips and her husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, and a fourth great-grandchild for the queen. The palace said Tindall was present at the birth.

In a statement, the palace said the queen, her husband Prince Philip and the baby's grandparents "are delighted with the news."

The 32-year-old Phillips, an equestrian who won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympics, is the daughter of the queen's daughter, Princess Anne, and Capt. Mark Phillips.

The queen's other great-grandchildren are six-month-old Prince George, son of Prince William and his wife Catherine; and the two daughters of Zara's brother, Peter Phillips, and his wife Autumn.
