The baby’s name will be confirmed in due course, the palace said, adding that the queen, her husband Prince Philip and Zara’s mother Princess Anne, the monarch’s only daughter, were delighted with the news.

The new royal, who is currently 19th in line to the throne, arrives two months after the birth of Elizabeth’s sixth great-grandchild, Prince Louis, the third child of her grandson Prince William and his wife Kate.

Zara, 37, won an equestrian silver at the London Olympic Games in 2012 while her 39-year-old husband was part of the England team that won the rugby World Cup in 2003.
