Zara Tindall has given birth to a baby boy, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

The Queen's granddaughter and her husband, former England rugby player, Mike Tindall welcomed their new addition on Sunday.

Mike announced the news on his podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, saying the birth was quite dramatic.

He said: 'Arrived very quickly. Didn't make it to hospital. On the bathroom floor. So yeah, it was running to the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get the mat on the floor, towels down, brace, brace, brace.

'Fortunately the midwife who was going to meet us at the hospital wasn't that far away so she drove up just as we had assumed the posit [position] and the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived.'

Their baby boy weighed in at 8lbs 4oz. They have named him Lucas Philip Tindall, in honour of both Zara's grandfather Prince Philip who turns 100 this year and Mike's father.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are 'delighted', the palace said in a statement adding that they 'look forward to meeting their 10th great-grandchild when circumstances allow'.

The Tindalls already have two children, Mia, 7, and Lena, 2. Their new baby son is 22nd in line to the throne.

The royal baby news comes just a few weeks after Princess Eugenie welcomed her first child, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank. Meghan and Harry have also announced they are expected their second child in the summer.
