Zara's Royal Baby Named Mia Grace

Mike Tindall shares name on twitter

Prince George's birth was announced via an easel placed outside Buckingham Palace, but Zara Philips and her husband Mike Tindall were  more democratic, using twitter, and today they used the site to announce the name of their daughter, Mia Grace.

Former England international rugby star Mr Tindall tweeted: 'For everyone who has asked what our daughters name, it's Mia Grace Tindall.'

Zara gave birth last week to the 7lb 12oz girl, who is 16th in line to the throne and is the Queen's fourth great-grandchild. Like Zara, she will have no royal title nor be an HRH as she is descended through the maternal line.
