It's been a busy year for the royal family!

While Queen Elizabeth is set to welcome two new additions to the royal family in 2011 with the engagements of Prince William and Zara Phillips, she might have one more addition this year.

PHOTOS: Who's due next?

Peter Phillips, the son of Princess Anne and cousin to Princes William and Harry, and his wife Autumn are expecting their first child around Christmas. Peter's sister Zara, 29, announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Mike Tindall on December 21.

PHOTOS: Who else is getting hitched?

Although Peter, 33, is 11th in line for the throne, it is safe to say that his child will be the first -- great-grandchild, that is.
