LONDON: Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter Zara Phillips has given birth to a baby girl, Buckingham Palace said Friday. The child is 16th in line to the British throne.
The baby was born at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in western England and weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces (3.5 kilograms). The palace said her name would be released "in due course."
This is the first child for Phillips and her husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, and a fourth great-grandchild for the queen. The palace said Tindall was present at the birth.
In a statement, the palace said the queen, her husband Prince Philip and the baby's grandparents "are delighted with the news."
The 32-year-old Phillips, an equestrian who won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympics, is the daughter of the queen's daughter Princess Anne and Capt. Mark Phillips.
The queen's other great-grandchildren are 6-month-old Prince George, son of Prince William and his wife Catherine; and the two daughters of Zara's brother Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn.
