Autumn and Peter have been living in Hong Kong since tying the knot in 2008, but they returned to the UK just before their daughter's birth. Both attended the Queen's pre-Christmas family lunch at Buckingham Palace (Middleton was also present).

The new addition is the first child for the couple, as well as the first grandchild for Princess Anne and the first great-grandchild for the The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. She is twelfth in line to the Throne, pushing Zara Phillips into 13th place.
