Looks like it's going to be a busy week for the Royal press office. And not that Kate could possibly have her thunder stolen as the world waits for the arrival of baby Middleton-Windsor (nor would she mind at all), but what timing?

The Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips and former England rugby player Mike Tindall have announced that they are expecting their first baby, sometime in 2014 according to Buckingham Palace and the BBC.

'Mr and Mrs Mike Tindall are very pleased to announce that Zara Tindall is expecting a baby in the new year. This baby will be the first child for Mike and Zara and the third grandchild for the Princess Royal. The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips, Mr Phillip and Mrs Linda Tindall, and members of both families are delighted with the news.'

The 14th in line to the throne and Olympic silver medalist is William's cousin and good mates with Kate so clearly they're all happy for each, as evidenced below. Let's just be grateful broken noses aren't inherited. Now we go back to Royal Baby No. 1 watch, which is set to consume our lives for the foreseeable. It's like we're all pregnant.
