Another royal baby has arrived!

Zara Tindall and her husband of six years, Mike Tindall, welcomed their second child into the world on Monday - with the newborn weighing 9lbs 3oz.

And their new daughter is already breaking records after she was confirmed as the heaviest royal baby in more than 100 years.

The record was previously held by Savannah Phillips - the daughter of Zara’s brother and the Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips - who weighed 8lb 8oz when she was born in 2010.

A Buckingham Palace statement announced: "Mrs Michael Tindall was safely delivered of a baby girl on 18th June, at Stroud Maternity Unit. Mr Tindall was present at the birth. The weight of the baby was 9lbs 3oz.

"The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Mike’s parents, Mr Philip and Mrs Linda Tindall, have been informed and are delighted with the news. The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course."

The 37-year-old opted to give birth at the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, which is close to her home and is also where she welcomed her first child - four-year-old daughter Mia - into the world in 2014.

The new arrival comes just over a year after the royal couple suffered a miscarriage on Christmas Eve 2016.
