She will have to share their affections when she becomes a big sister later this month.
But little Savannah Phillips had nothing to worry about on that score yesterday, as she enjoyed a day out in the sunshine with her aunt Zara and her grandmother, Princess Anne.
The pair were happy to pitch in and lark about with the 15-month-old, giving her parents, Peter and Autumn Phillips, a welcome break as the family attended the Gatcombe Horse Trials in Gloucestershire.

Zara, 30, beamed as she carried her niece, and Princess Anne joined in the fun too, at one point even pretending to be a plane.
Savannah is the only daughter of Mr Phillips, the Queen’s eldest grandson.
His Canadian wife, Autumn, is expecting the couple’s second child, who is due this month.
The heavily pregnant 33-year-old was no doubt quite relieved to let her relatives look after Savannah for a while, and looked on happily as they played with her daughter outside a marquee.
Mr Phillips, 34, quit as head of global sponsorship at Royal Bank of Scotland last month. There were reports that his job may have been at risk amid extensive cuts at the bank.
He seemed cheerful enough at the trials yesterday, however, which he jointly organised at his mother’s country home.
