The latest royal family birth announcement has caused something of a stir.
The Palace confirmed the happy news via a statement released on Twitter, but some fans weren’t happy about the language used in the announcement, with some accusing it of being out-dated and ‘sexist’.
“Mrs Michael Tindall was safely delivered of a baby girl on 18th June, at Stroud Maternity Unit,” the statement read.
“Mr Tindall was present at the birth. The weight of the baby was 9lbs 3oz.”
Royal fans quickly took to Twitter to express their views about the “archaic description.”
“Congratulations to them! “Mrs Michael Tindall” sounds archaic as a description for a spirited high-achieving individual like Zara though!” one user tweeted.
“Mrs. Michael Tindall? Really? She gave up her first name when she married?” another wrote.
“High time the UK adopt an official more equitable way of naming married women. This is antiquated. How about Mrs Zara Tindall-Phillips?” another user tweeted.
“Why is Zara referred to as Mrs Michael Tindall? Very bizarre in the 21st Century. Is Buck House not aware of #MeToo” another added.
“The way that’s written sounds like she’s Michaels possession or that he himself had the baby,” yet another user commented.
Despite the backlash, many other royal fans also used the opportunity to offer their congratulations to the couple on their newborn.
The baby is yet to be named but an announcement will be made “in due course.”
The new baby is the second new addition to the royal family this year after the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s third child, Prince Louis, on April 23rd.
