Lady Helen Taylor has given birth to a baby girl it was announced on Tuesday. The daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Kent who is also the face of fashion label Armani, gave birth to baby Estella, on December 21.

"Mother and baby are doing well and the Duke and Duchess of Kent are delighted with the arrival of their latest grandchild," a family spokeswoman was quoted as saying, adding: “It’s a good bit of family news after the sad loss of Sir Angus.”

The happy announcement came on the heels of the death of Sir Angus Ogilvy, 76 - husband of the Queen’s cousin Princess Alexandra - who passed away on Boxing Day after a long series of cancer-related illnesses. His funeral took place on Wednesday.

Estella is the fourth child for the 40-year-old royal and her art dealer husband Tim, who have been married since 1992. The new bundle of joy is 29th in line to the throne and joins the expanding family as a sister to Columbus, ten, Cassius, eight, and one-year-old daughter Eloise.
