Mike and her friend, a midwife were there and its the third child, everything went well. and I do not know if a birth is ever fun, but surely always a wonderful moment for a mother, no matter where it happens.

I believe only Harry and Archie are the ones without a direct or indirect tribute to Prince Philip or his relations. All the other boys have a Philip, Louis or Andrew in their names. (Happy to be corrected..)
They have Mountbatten. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, that should count and it is huge considering how much Prince Philip fought for it.
And Philip's other uncle is George Louis Victor Henry Mountbatten - he is less known than this brother the Earl of Burma Louis Mountbatten. So there is Henry.

And, of course, Zara’s maiden name is Phillips.

Welcome to the world little Lucas Philip Tindall. Nice name. Will Zara and Mike have a story to tell him, when he is old enough. Guess what Lucas you were born at home on the bathroom floor. Big sisters Mia and Lena must be very happy. Congratulation to the Family. Great news to start the day.

fab news, they must be delighted to have their baby boy. i wonder if they were planning a home birth or whether lucas' arrival took them by surprise. i'm not too keen on the name lucas but love how philip is his second name, specially seeing the health issues he's had lately - surely not a coincidence both zara and eugenie decided to include philip in the life of their babies at this time.

Wonderful news!

And a fitting tribute to both the Duke of Edinburgh and Zara's paternal family.

It is excellent that Master Lucas has Philip as a middle name.

I think his name is lovely.
But why pick the bathroom and not the bedroom? Many babies are born at home in the Netherlands but unless it is a water birth, most mothers prefer their bed over the bathroom floor.

Probably if you weren't preparing for a whom birth, this makes some sense?!

I hazard a guess that little Lucas had no intention on waiting and when Zara needed to push, she probably thought it was a bowel movement as they feel the same, I.e urgency to push. Probably why she was in the bathroom.

When the baby is coming, it doesn't discriminate where! And at stage 3 of labour, Zara wouldn't of cared if she was in the bathroom, bedroom or hallway!

Congrats to Zara, Mike and the girls! Sounds like they will have their hands full with the little bundle of energy

I'm surprised they had a name and everything all ready. Now all that's left to guess is godparents.

Obviously the birth happened fast and the bathroom was probably a better place to put down towels and mats and wash things....

Apparently, they decided on the name after birth; but I assume they had several options... And I don't think the middle name was still up in the air.

Given that the baby was most likely born around his due date, I would have been much more surprised if they still had no clue about the name of their child.

According to Mike they had time to put down mats, call up the midwife who arrived just in time So, while the time was limited, they were able to do SOME preparations and they purposefully moved to the bathroom when they found out that going to the hospital was no longer an option.

Quote:
Mike recalled: 'Fortunately Zara's friend Dolly [Maude] is, she's actually more important than I am at making sure she's been at all three of my children's births, she was there and recognised that we wouldn't have got to the hospital in time, so it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, towels down, brace brace brace!

'Fortunately the midwife that was going to meet us at the hospital wasn't that far away so she drove up, got there just as we'd assumed the position, and then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived!'
