GREAT GRAN THE QUEEN
The Queen is said to be "delighted" after learning she is to become a great-grandmother for the first time.
Buckingham Palace said Princess Anne's son Peter Phillips and his Canadian-born wife Autumn were expecting their first child in December.
Mr Phillips, the Queen's eldest grandson and 11th in line to the throne, met his wife while working at the Montreal Grand Prix in 2003.
They were married at Windsor Castle in May 2008.
