Move over, Kate Middleton. At least for a few days.

Prince William’s cousin and Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Zara Phillips is expecting a child, her first with husband Mike Tindall. She’s due in early 2014!

"Mr. and Mrs. Mike Tindall are very pleased to announce that Zara Tindall is expecting a baby in the new year," Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

"The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips, Mr. Phillip and Mrs. Linda Tindall, and members of both families are delighted with the news."


Zara and Mike tied the knot in Canongate Kirk, Scotland, in July 2011, just a few months after Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding that April.

Will and Kate’s child, who will be the third in line to the British throne, is due this week. You can still get in on the betting action re: the date and name.

Congratulations to the whole family on a momentous week!
