Zara and Mike Tindall have named their new baby daughter Lena Elizabeth.

The Queen’s granddaughter Zara gave birth to her second child, weighing 9lb 3oz, at Stroud Maternity Unit in Gloucestershire on Monday, June 18.

A spokesperson for the couple said they had decided on the name simply because they "liked it".

Lena is pronounced "Lay-na" and Elizabeth is in honour of Zara’s grandmother the Queen.

The name is said to be Greek in origin, with meanings including "temptress", "illustrious" and "the bright one"

The newest addition to the royal family is a younger sister to four-year-old Mia Tindall.

Lena is 19th in line to the throne and the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s seventh great-grandchild.

In 2014, Mike Tindall unveiled Mia’s name via his Twitter account, saying: “For everyone who has asked what our daughter's name is, it’s Mia Grace Tindall.”

The baby is also a second cousin to Prince George and Princess Charlotte and their younger brother Prince Louis, who was born just under two months ago.

Lena is not an HRH, does not have a title and will be simply Miss Tindall.

The Tindalls are said to be adapting well to becoming a family of four.

Zara, a champion equestrian rider who won a team silver in the London 2012 Olympics, and former England rugby player Tindall have been together for 15 years and married in Edinburgh in July 2011.

The new baby is believed to be the heaviest royal baby in recent years, taking over the record from Zara's niece Savannah Phillips, who was 8lb 8oz when born in 2010.
