New mother Zara Phillips has headed home from hospital after welcoming her newborn baby daughter into the world.

 

The silver medal-winning Olympian, who is one of Britain’s leading equestrian riders, gave birth to her first child early this morning at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital with husband, the former England rugby star, Mike Tindall at her side.

The new royal baby, who weighed 7lbs 12oz and is 16th in line to the throne, is the Queen’s fourth great grandchild.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: “The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Mike’s parents, Mr Phillip and Mrs Linda Tindall, have been informed and are delighted with the news.

“The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course.”

The new family of three are believed to have headed to their home on the Princess Royal’s Gatcombe Park estate.

Zara’s pregnancy was confirmed by the Palace in July, just a few weeks before the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby son Prince George.

She took a tumble while competing at the Barbury International Eventing and Show in Marlborough, Wiltshire, a few days before her pregnancy became public knowledge.

But she was described as ”fine” by a spokeswoman for Juniper Sport, a PR and sports agency that represents her.

Zara won a silver medal at London 2012 with eventing equestrian teammates William Fox-Pitt, Mary King, Tina Cook and Nicola Wilson, and is planning to take part in the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016.

She married former rugby international Tindall in July 2011 in a ceremony staged in Edinburgh and attended by the Queen and senior royals.

The baby girl follows Zara’s brother Peter Phillips’ two children and Prince George to become the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s fourth great grandchild.

Peter Phillips’ daughters Savannah and Isla Phillips was also born at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital in Gloucester.

Given that it is one of high-society’s biggest bashes, it’s no surprise that Pippa Middleton and her boyfriend Nico Jackson were guests of honour at the Boodles Boxing Ball in London, this evening.

The sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, who turned 30 earlier this month, attended the annual charity fundraiser in a striking black and orange halter-neck dress.

She matched the outfit with black, strappy, peep-toe shoes and long, tousled hair. Her make-up was simple, except for statement blusher on her cheeks.

The Waitrose and Vanity Fair columnist looked happy relaxed as she posed for photographs alongside long-term beau, Nico – who wore a fitted tuxedo with an over-sized bow tie.

The couple weren’t the only royal pair to attend the bash – Princess Beatrice was also there with her boyfriend, Dave Clark.

Other royals who attended included Prince Harry, who wore a classic tuxedo, while pregnant Zara Phillips looked every inch the expectant mother in a silk, billowing dress which showed her maternal curves.


Previously, both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended – adding new kudos to the ball.

The black-tie event – the fourth of its kind – was held at The Grosvenor House Hotel because, according to event organisers, it’s the only venue big enough to cope with the growing number of attendees.

Last year, tickets sold out in less than 24 hours.

In 2012 the proceeds were divided between two charities – The Starlight Children’s Foundation and the Lt Dougie Dalzell MC Memorial Trust.

The former grants once-in-a-lifetime wishes to seriously and terminally-ill children, while the latter helps injured soldiers and families who have lost loved ones at war.

Celebrities who attended included Olympic athlete Jessica Ennis, TV presenter Kelly Brooke and entrepreneur Sam Branson.
