Prince George and Princess Charlotte have their every public move documented by the press, but there's another royal baby worth watching: the cheeky four-year-old Mia Tindall. Here's everything you need to know about the Queen's great-granddaughter.

MIA GRACE TINDALL WAS BORN TO ZARA AND MIKE TINDALL ON JANUARY 17, 2014.

Buckingham Palace announced the news, and a few days later, a proud papa shared his newborn's name via Twitter.


Mia is Zara and Mike's first child, the youngest grandchild of Princess Anne, and the second youngest great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth. She stole the show in 2016 in a portrait released in honor of the Queen's 90th birthday when she held the monarch's purse.

“She just did it,” a source at the palace told People at the time. “She just picked it up—it wasn't staged. It was completely spontaneous.”

SHE IS CURRENTLY 17TH IN LINE TO THE BRITISH THRONE.

Despite her position in the line of succession, Mia Tindall does not hold a formal royal rank. According to the BBC, children of the daughter of a monarch are not "entitled to the rank of 'Her Royal Highness,'" and when Mia's mother Zara was born in 1981, her parents, Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, declined to give her a title. (More on the patriarchal way in which royal titles are passed on here.) Since neither her mother nor her father has a royal rank, Mia does not have one either.

When Will and Kate's third child is born, Mia will drop to 18th in line.

SHE'S AN ONLY CHILD, FOR THE TIME BEING.

In January of 2018, it was announced that Zara and Mike Tindall are expecting their second child. According to the BBC, the baby will arrive sometime after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child, which is due in April of 2018.
