The news comes after Zara suffered a miscarriage in December 2016.

A spokeswoman for the couple said at the time: “Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.”

Zara, daughter of Princess Anne and a British equestrian, married Mike, a former England rugby player, in July 2011. 

The baby will be the Queen’s sixth great-grandchild and Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s second cousin.

Zara was named Prince George’s godmother in 2013 shortly after he was born.
