On Wednesday, December 9, Zara Tindall announced that she is pregnant with her third child, two years after the birth of her daughter Lena. But by the way, how many times was Elizabeth II a great-grandmother?
The royal family will soon grow. On Wednesday, December 9, Zara Tindall announced that she and her husband Mike Tindall will soon welcome their third child. This is good news for Princess Anne’s daughter, who has had three pregnancies before, including a miscarriage. After becoming the mother of Mia, born in 2014, she gave birth to her second child, a little girl named Lena, in 2018. These little girls were added to the small troupe of Elizabeth II’s great-grandchildren, already very numerous.
Indeed, in almost 10 years, the queen has become a great-grandmother no less than eight times. Her first great-granddaughter is none other than Savannah Phillips, daughter of Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s eldest son. She will be followed two years later by her sister Isla, and then by Prince George, son Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2013.
The following year, Zara Tindall gave birth to her first child, Mia, followed in 2015 by Princess Charlotte. It was not until 2018 that the royal babies came back in force, with the birth of Prince Louis in April 2018 and then Lena Tindall in June of the same year. In May 2019, almost a year after the marriage of his parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, little Archie was born.
Two great-grandchildren for 2021
Great-grandchildren whom Elizabeth II loves according to her relatives, while two of her granddaughters will soon give her two more great-grandchildren. Indeed, if Zara Tindall is expecting her third child, Princess Eugenie is also expecting a happy event in early 2021. Last September, the royal family proudly announced the first pregnancy of the Queen’s granddaughter, who no longer hides her baby bump.
