Princess Beatrice’s baby girl is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild.
The royal infant has arrived just months after the death of their great-grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.
The monarch’s large brood of great-grandchildren has swelled in 2021, with Princess Eugenie welcoming baby son August in February and Zara Tindall her third child Lucas in March.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s daughter Lili Mountbatten-Windsor was born in June, just over two months after 99-year-old Philip died.
The Queen’s great-grandchildren are: Savannah and Isla Phillips; Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis of Cambridge; Mia, Lena and Lucas Tindall; Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and his sister Lili; August Brooksbank; and Princess Beatrice’s new arrival.
The baby has been born 11th in line to the throne.
The first 10 places remain the same, with the new addition to the family entering the line of succession below Beatrice and above Eugenie, who has moved down to 12th place.
The Cambridge children call their great-grandmother the Queen Gan-Gan, and the monarch always leaves a small gift in her great-grandchildren’s rooms whenever they come to stay.
When she was introduced to George soon after he was born in 2013, it was the first time in almost 120 years that a reigning monarch had met a future king three generations ahead.
