Zara Tindall, 39, is Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest granddaughter and the only daughter of Princess Anne, 70. Zara and her brother Peter Phillips were raised without royal titles unlike their younger cousins Princess Beatrice, 32, and Princess Eugenie, 30. Princess Eugenie is pregnant with her first child and the royal baby is due early next year – here’s how Zara and her daughters will be related to Eugenie’s child.
Zara tied the knot with former England rugby captain Mike Tindall in 2011.
Zara is a professional athlete herself and has represented Britain’s equestrian team in the Olympics.
Zara and Mike have two young daughters – Mia, six, and Lena, two, and who are among Prince Philip and the Queen’s eight great-grandchildren.
Lena and Mia will get a new royal playmate following the arrival of Eugenie’s baby.

While neither Lena nor Mia have royal titles, they still have a place in the line of succession.
Mia is currently 19th in line to the throne and Lena 20th.
The arrival of Eugenie’s first child will spark a shift in the line of succession as Eugenie is currently 10th in line and her baby will automatically become 11th.
This means that every royal currently after Eugenie in the line of succession will move down a spot.
Prince Edward and his two children – Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn will move to 12th, 13th and 14th in line.
Princess Anne will become 15th in line.
Zara’s big brother Peter and his two daughters – Savannah and Isla will become 16th, 17th and 18th in line.
While Zara will move down to 19th place.
Prince Edward is the most senior royal to be affected by this change as the rest of the royals who fall after Eugenie do not work for the Royal Family full time.
