Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall have appeared on the front cover of Hello! magazine with their daughter Mia.
The Queen's granddaughter has become the first senior member of the royal family to sell photos of their baby to a celebrity magazine.
According to the Daily Mail, senior officials at Buckingham Palace were not aware of the reported £150,000 deal in advance.
The family are plastered over 13 pages of the magazine and the pictures were taken at their cottage on Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire.
In the interview, Zara and Mike spoke about Mia's birth on January 17th and revealed how Zara called the Queen as soon as she returned home from hospital.
The couple described Mia as "pretty relaxed and happy so far" while Mike, the former England rugby captain, said becoming a father was "awesome".
He added how Zara was desperate to start riding horses again, while the new mother said there was a Shetland pony ready and waiting for her daughter to learn to ride when she was old enough.
