Queen Elizabeth II is set to break yet another record during her reign as she awaits the birth of her newest great-grandchildren.

Royal baby news hasn’t been slowing down with the announcements of more new additions to the Windsor family.

Both Zara Tindall and the Duchess of Sussex have announced they are both expecting, alongside Meghan and Harry’s arrival later in the year.

The newest royals will mean that the Queen, now 94, will surpass a record set by the Queen Mother.

The Queen and her husband Prince Philip will soon be meeting their tenth and eleventh great-grandchildren. The Queen Mother, who died in 2002 at the age of 101, met nine of her 12 great-grandchildren.

Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their baby boy into the royal family earlier this month.

The Queen and Prince Philip are yet to meet great-grandchild number nine, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The baby, who has been named August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, will be 11th in line to the throne, taking Prince Edward’s place who is now the 12th.

Eugenie’s child will not automatically have an HRH title unless the Queen decides to bestow one as he was born down the female line of the family.

She also doesn’t represent the Queen or receive taxpayer funding, so she is entitled to safeguarding the privacy of her family.

Eugenie, 30, and Jack Brooksbank, 34, married in October 2018.
