A spokeswoman for the couple said: “Zara and Mike Tindall are happy to announce the birth of their third child, Lucas Philip Tindall.”

The newest addition to the Tindall family is a younger brother to seven-year-old Mia and two-year-old Lena.

He is the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s 10th great-grandchild, but is only 22nd in line to the throne.

Mike Tindall had joked about wanting a boy this time around.
