Zara Tindall gave birth to baby No. 3, a baby boy, on Sunday, March 21. But the real question is will the new tot, whose name is Lucas Philip Tindall, have a royal title?

According to the Daily Express, Lucas will not have a title. Zara — who is the daughter of Princess Anne — does not have a title, either. 

Anne decided that her children, Zara and Peter Phillips, would not have a title. Therefore, they would not be able to pass any title on

Lucas is also too far down the line of succession — he's 22nd in line — to receive a title.

The outlet reported that "royal tradition states that the titles of Royal Highness (HRH) and prince and princess should be restricted to the children of the sovereign, the children of the sovereign's sons (extended to daughters too in 2013), and the eldest son (or daughter) of the Prince of Wales."

The topic was discussed after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry revealed their son, Archie, didn't have a title

However, that doesn't seem to be true. “Under royal protocol established by King George V, only those in the direct line of succession to the throne get the titles [of] prince or princess," an insider revealed.

Even though Archie — who turns 2 in May — didn't receive a title when he was born, if he didn't leave the royal family, he "would've been given a title when Prince Charles became king," the insider explained, whereas Lucas is so far down the line to become king, he will live his life as a Tindall rather than a prince.

Zara's husband, Mike Tindall, revealed the exciting news on his podcast, "The Good, The Bad & The Rugby," on Wednesday, March 24.

"A little baby boy arrived at my house!" he said, adding that Zara's friend, Dolly Maude, was "fortunately" at their home "and recognized 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, get a mat on the floor, towels down, 'brace-brace-brace,'" Mike — who also shares daughters Mia, 7, and Lena, 2, with Zara — said.

"Fortunately, the midwife, who 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 pos-ish [as he called the position]. And then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived," he continued, adding that Lucas “arrived very quickly ... on the bathroom floor."
