Peter Phillips, the only son of Princess Anne, and his wife Autumn, welcomed their second child on March 29. The name has been released, and their daughter is named Isla Elizabeth. Isla Phillips was born at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, weighing 3.4 kg (7 pounds 4 ounces). It has been speculated that Isla’s middle name is after her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, this year holding her Diamond Jubilee. Peter and Autumn already have a daughter named Savannah, born in 2010.

The Queen’s press secretary said: “The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Captain Mark Phillips and Autumn’s family have been informed and are delighted with the news.

“Isla Elizabeth is the second child for Peter and Autumn, the second grandchild for the Princess Royal and the second great-grandchild for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

“She will be 13th in line to the throne.”
