Baby joy for Queen's niece

Lady Sarah and husband Daniel at their 1994 wedding

The Queen's niece, Lady Sarah Chatto, has given birth to a boy.

The baby, born last night at London's Portland Hospital, is 15th in line to the throne.

"Both mother and baby are doing well," said a spokesman.

Lady Sarah's parents, Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon, and all members of their families, were said to be "thrilled and delighted".

The new baby, who has yet to be named, is Lady Sarah and her artist husband Daniel Chatto's second child and is a brother to two-year-old Samuel.

The Queen has also been celebrating the 47th anniversary of her accession to the throne. Royal gun salutes have been fired throughout the country.
