Zara and Mike Tindall are expecting their second child, a spokeswoman for the couple has said.

Equestrian champion Zara - the Queen's granddaughter - and former England rugby player Tindall are said to be thrilled with the news.

The couple already have a daughter Mia, who is nearly three.

The new baby, due around late spring, will be the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh's sixth great-grandchild.
