The Queen is expecting another great-grandchild and this time will be from Zara Anne Phillips with husband Mike Tindall. Three years passed since 2013 when they announced her pregnancy with their first daughter, this time becomes more exciting for the couple.

Following the family three, the child will be the sixth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, said on Mirror. Zara is the second child and first daughter of her Royal Highness Anne, Princess Royal and ex-husband Captain Mark Phillips.

The baby will also be the second cousin with the third and fourth heir apparent to the throne Prince George and Princess Charlotte respectively. Zara's line will not hold any Royal Title since they are from the Monarch's female line but her coming child will be the 18th in line to the throne of the United Kingdom.

In the last Rio Olympics, Zara missed her equestrian sports for the British team since she missed a nomination from the Federation of British Equestrian, said on Express. In the 2102 London Olympics, she obtained the Silver medal bringing the honor to the country and The Crown.

Blessing in disguise, she is now expecting a baby for missing out the Rio Olympics. Based on the announcement, the second child will arrive in the early spring next year.

"The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and members of the Royal Family are delighted with the news," Buckingham Palace Spokesperson said. The great-grandchildren call the sovereign "gan-gan" and the expected baby will assume the same name to call the Queen.

Aside from sports, Zara also run her own clothing line but she claimed she is no fashion designer. Her company specializes on Sports Brand, Musto. She is able to enigmatically put her own collection of clothes line that is both waterproof jacket and it is also windproof.
