The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall has revealed she suffered a second miscarriage before having her daughter Lena last month.
In an interview with the Sunday Times Magazine, alongside her brother Peter Phillips, she said the loss happened “really early on”.
The 37-year-old equestrian, who won silver at the 2012 London Olympics, has previously disclosed she suffered a miscarriage in December 2016.
“But, as with everything, time’s a great healer.”
She married former England rugby player Mike Tindall in 2011 and the couple have another daughter called Mia, aged four.
“In our case, it was something that was really rare; it was nature saying, ‘this one’s not right’,” she told the magazine.
“For me, the worst bit was that we had to tell everyone — everyone knew.”
With Mia set to start school in September and with one-month-old Lena to look after, Zara said she is “going back and doing it all again”, adding: “It is fine at the moment.”
