The Queen will soon break a record which was set by the Queen Mother.

  • Two new royal babies are on the way, meaning the Queen will meet her 10th and 11th great children this year.
  • This is two more than her mother knew before she passed away in 2002.
  • This follows royal news that the Queen's husband Prince Philip is set to remain in hospital until next week.

Zara Tindall and the Duchess of Sussex are both pregnant and will welcome babies before the year is out.

This means that the Queen and Prince Philip will have 11 great grandchildren by the end of 2021.

The monarch recently welcomed great grandchild number nine when Princess Eugenie gave birth to a baby boy.

More from Woman & Home:

The baby boy will be 11th in line to the throne, taking the place of Prince Edward, who moved down to 12th place.

Although Eugenie is a princess, her child will not automatically have an HRH title, unless the Queen decides to bestow one.

This is because he was born down the female line of the Royal Family.

Zara's third child is due in Spring, while Meghan's second child is due later this year.
