The Queen's granddaughter gave birth to her second daughter with her former rugby player partner in June, and waited nine days before announcing that they had named her Lena Elizabeth.

Chatting to Hello!about how they chose the name in an interview at the weekend (9 July), Zara revealed the selection was influenced by their older daughter Mia's name.

She added that she and Mike had felt free to be more creative with their choice than her cousin Prince William and wife Kate, who have opted for traditionally names for their three children.

'It's also similar to Mia's because it's distinct, not shortened from another name.'

The name Lena is of Greek origin and means 'sunshine'.

Mike previously opened up about their daughter's name in an interview with Hello! last week, admitting it took the couple a while to decide on.

'We put together a list of names that we liked and that's why it took a little bit of time to get to one that we both agreed [on] and liked,' he explained.
