As if to underscore how radically different her life is going to be from her royal second cousin, the
newest member of the Windsor fam made her name announcement in a decidedly non-traditional way (grammar included):

Screen shot 2014-01-23 at 9.34.24 AM That’s right: no easel in front of Buckingham for the Tindall crew. Zara Phillips’ (Princess Anne’s daughter, Queen E’s grand-daughter) husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, casually tweeted the name news this afternoon UK time. For everyone who immediately thought ‘Mia Thermopolis / Princess Diaries’ when they heard – the baby girl, born last week, actually won’t have a ‘royal highness’ title attached to her name. Add all this to her other decidedly non-royal activities – born in a public hospital, the non-traditional (aka no Elizabeth or Anne) name choice – little Mia’s had a wildly rebellious first week of life (for someone who can’t lift her own head).
What do you think of the name choice?
