Queen Elizabeth's seventh great-grandchild has a name. It's a name that certainly made her smile when she heard it.

Zara and Mike Tindall welcomed their second child on June 18. Now the little girl has a name: Lena Elizabeth Tindall!

Her middle name is undoubtedly a nod to her great-grandmother. What an honor to share a name with her royal grandma!

This is the seventh great-grandchild for Queen Elizabeth and the fourth grandchild for her daughter Princess Anne. The new baby is 19th in line for the throne.

Lena has an older sister, 4-year-old Mia. The newborn is especially important to the parents. Zara suffered a miscarriage in December 2016.

The parents shared that Mia got them through the incredibly hard time. It was her mischievousness was a light in their life.

“The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter who is now 3,” Mike told The Sunday Times in May 2017. “However down we feel she will come running up in our faces. When I was playing I hardly saw her; now we can see her grow up. I can take her swimming and I can take her to Ninja Tots. You’ll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke.”

Lena was born at Stroud Maternity Unit in Gloucestershire on June 18. According to a Buckingham Palace statement, she weighed 9 pounds and three ounces.

In other news, there was major news yesterday for the owner of the restaurant that refused to serve Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Do you think more will happen to her?
