Another of the Queen’s grandchildren Princess Beatrice gave birth to a baby girl Sienna last month.
Beatrice and her husband Edoardo’s issued a sweet statement announcing their daughter’s name on social media last week.
The post read: “We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.
“We are all doing well and Wolfie is the best big brother to Sienna.”

A Palace statement announcing Sienna’s birth read: “Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are delighted to announce the safe arrival of their daughter on Saturday 18th September 2021, at 23.42, at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London.
“The baby weighs 6 pounds and 2 ounces.
“The new baby’s grandparents and great-grandparents have all been informed and are delighted with the news. The family would like to thank all the staff at the hospital for their wonderful care.
“Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well, and the couple are looking forward to introducing their daughter to her big brother Christopher Woolf.”
Royal baby news: Eugenie gave birth to August in February
Baby Sienna is the Queen’s 12th great-grandchild and following the monarch’s return to Windsor Castle from Scotland, she may have had the chance to meet her new great-granddaughter.
The Royal Family traditionally gather together at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk every Christmas to spend the holidays en masse.
However, last year, as was the case for families across the UK, the reunion was prevented due to the pandemic.
While Harry and Meghan have been based in the US since their departure from the Firm last year, there is speculation the couple could return to Britain to spend this Christmas with the Queen.
Despite their decision to quit royal duties, the Queen has always maintained the Sussexes remain much-loved members of her family and she would no doubt be delighted to see their son Archie and finally get to meet their daughter Lilibet who they named in her honour.
Meghan and Harry will not be the only royals invited to join the Queen at Sandringham as Beatrice, Eugenie and Zara are all regulars there for Christmas too.
This could mean all four of the Queen’s new great-grandchildren could come together in one place before the end of 2021.
After last year’s Christmas was effectively cancelled royal fans will be eagerly awaiting this year’s in the hope they will once again see the Windsors out en masse.
The family usually step out together to attend a church service in King’s Lynn on Christmas and in 2019 the two eldest Cambridge children Prince George and Princess Charlotte joined their parents there for the first time.
The young royals delighted crowds by greeting royal fans alongside their parents following the service.
While the new royal babies are unlikely to appear at church this year, little Louis who turned three last April could make his Christmas Day debut.
