Queen Elizabeth II Has Her First Grandchild – According to a statement from the Buckingham Palace, “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburg, he Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Autumn’s family have been informed and are delighted with the news. The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course.”

Buckingham Palace said on Thursday that Queen Elizabeth became a great-grandmother for the first time when her grandson Peter Phillips gave birth to a baby girl.

Peter Phillips is the only son of the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, and her first husband Mark Phillips. Peter Phillips is married to Autumn Phillips, a Canadian, who gave birth on Wednesday.

The newly born baby girl is the 12th in line to the throne. Her birth also made Zara an aunt. The royal family said last week that Zara, who is a successful equestrian athlete, was to marry rugby player Mike Tindall.

Peter and Autumn Phillips lived until recently in Hong Kong, where Phillips worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland. He now works for the bank in London.
