In December, Mike Tindall, 42, revealed that his wife Zara, 39, is pregnant with their third child.

Speaking on Fergie & Friends, her Youtube channel, the Duchess of York called for compassion for all, with reference to the latest family member.

She said: “I believe everyone deserves respect and kindness, whether you’re just born, like my grandson, or whether it’s when you’re 110.

“Everyone is wise and everyone deserves respect and kindness and a smile.

“Says so much but costs very little.”

In a statement released on Saturday, the duchess said:”As grandparents, The Duke and I are thrilled and blessed at the arrival of our grandson August Philip Hawke Brooksbank.
