Royal Profile: Isla Elizabeth Philips

Isla Elizabeth Philips was born 29 March 2012 {Source}. At the time of her birth, because her father holds no royal title and they are only distantly in line for the British throne, only an announcement was released by Buckingham Palace, without photos of the newborn {Source}. At birth, she weighed 7lbs and 4oz {Source}.

She is the younger of two daughters of Peter Mark Andrew Philips and Autumn Patricia Kelly Philips {Source}. She has one older sister, Savannah Anne Kathleen Philips{Source}.

She is currently 14th in line for the British Throne after her father, elder sister, her grandmother, and her father's three uncles and six cousins {Source}.

Due to her age and distance for the Brititsh throne, it's almost safe to say that Miss Phillips will lead a fairly normal life. Little Isla made her public debut when the family gathered in Gloucestershire for a polo match in June 2012{Source}. Her christening took place in Gloucestershire in July 2012 {Source}, there was no announcement of who the godparents were.
