Lord and Lady Frederick Windsor welcomed baby Isabella on 16 January 

The couple are already parents to Maud Elizabeth Daphne Marina Windsor whose middle names are tributes to the Queen and her two grandmothers. Born on 15 August 2013, she was introduced to the world via the pages of HELLO!

Her sister arrives six years after the couple's emotional wedding at Hampton Court Palace with his proud parents Prince and Princess Michael of Kent as guests of honour.

As a grandson of George V, the Prince is first cousins with the Queen. Isabella is 48th-in-line to the throne after her big sister.

Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips recently talked about growing up in the heart of the royal family, in particular having holidays at the Queen's country estates, Sandringham, Windsor and Balmoral.

He said: "We had a lot of fun and there was a lot of space for kids to run around in, and it wasn't just us – it was the Wales' (William and Harry), Freddie and Ella Windsor, and the Gloucesters (the three children of the Queen's cousin, Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester).

"So there was quite a gang of us growing up in that age and it was a lot of fun. We caused quite a bit of mayhem and chaos but fortunately I don't think we broke too much!"

However noisy children are, Princess Michael will be delighted to have more in the family.

Speaking ahead of the return of her son and daughter-in-law, she said: "My granddaughter was two in August and I can't wait to play with her. I'm besotted and there will be lots of games. I'm sure I'll be just as besotted with the second one."
