Queen Elizabeth Welcomes First Great-Grandchild!
Perhaps there'll be one more royal attending Prince William and Kate Middleton's April wedding.
Peter Phillips, son of Princess Anne and cousin to Princes William and Harry, and his wife Autumn became the proud parents of a baby girl Wednesday.
Born at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, the baby -- whose name has yet to be released -- weighed in at 8 lbs, 8oz.
"Mr. Peter Phillips was present at the birth," Queen Elizabeth's press secretary tells Usmagazine.com in a statement. "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Autumn's family have been informed and are delighted with the news."
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.
