Queen Elizabeth sympathizes over granddaughter, Zara Tindall’s loss.


Zara Tindall suffered a second miscarriage before becoming pregnant with her second child, Lena. The mother of two, suffered a lot.

 Her Majesty was quite upset to hear her granddaughter going through all this.

Zara Tindall had her first miscarriage in the year 2016. It was just three weeks after she and her husband Mike had announced her pregnancy.

It was announced by the couple’s spokesperson that: “Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy”.

While sharing her thoughts in an interview, Zara said:-

“You know, many people wrote to me and Mike claiming that they’d gone through the same thing. In our case, it was something that was really rare”.

“It felt as if nature was saying, ‘This one’s not right’. For me, the worst bit was that we had to tell this to everyone, everyone knew”.

The royal also explained: “I had to go through having the baby because it was so far along. At the time, Peter was again very much the protective brother”.

“He was very much concerned about me, as was Mike. Everyone was. It was a time when my family came to the fore and I needed them more than anyone”.

Sadly, Zara had another miscarriage really early on.

“You need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw. But, as with everything, time’s a great healer”, she said.

“I think Pete found it quite strange when I had my first child, Mia, 4. And, that would be because I’m not very maternal with kids”.

“If someone had a new baby and said, ‘Do you want to hold my baby?’, I’d go, ‘No thanks’. But, I really enjoyed all of it when I had Mia”.

“I shocked myself. There’s quite a big gap between Mia and Lena. Mia is about to start school and Lena, is just a month old. I’m going back and doing it all again”.
