Queen Elizabeth receives a new grandson

One of the great-granddaughters of Queen Elizabeth II gave birth to a boy, the first of her after two daughters, as the labor surprised her and she was unable to go to the hospital.

A spokesman for the couple confirmed today, Wednesday, that Princess Anne´s daughter, Zara Tindall, delivered her pregnancy on Sunday at the house where she lives with her husband, Mike.

For their newborn, the couple chose the name Lucas Philippe Tindall.

"A baby boy has arrived at my house," said Mike, an English rugby player.

"He arrived very quickly. He did not wait to go to the hospital. (I gave birth) on the floor in the bathroom," he explained on his podcast.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace said: "The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are pleased with this news and look forward to meeting their tenth grandson when conditions permit."

It is reported that Zara is a professional jockey and previously won a silver medal in the 2012 London Olympics in the equestrian category.
