There has been some heartbreaking news out of the royal family this morning after the palace released a statement saying the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall had lost her unborn baby.

Zara announced she was pregnant with her second child just last month, but sadly miscarried this week.

It’s something so many of us can relate to and no matter who you are – rich, poor, famous or not – it’s the kind of tragedy that shakes you to your very core.

The palace did not reveal too many details, understandably calling for privacy at this difficult time.

“Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy,” they said in the statement.

The Queen is said to be incredibly saddened by the news as she and Zara are particularly close.

Zara, Princess Anne’s daughter, is an Olympic horse riding champion and has bonded with the Queen over the years thanks to their love of horses.

Zara and her husband Mike already have a two-year-old daughter named Mia and the whole family is said to be doing their best to deal with the tragedy.

Unfortunately, it’s something so many women go through with nearly a quarter of all pregnancies ending in miscarriage.

Many over 60 women went through the same thing in their twenties and thirties when they were starting a family and can understand the grief Zara is no doubt feeling today.

Sadly, it’s not something that is widely talked about, with many women saying they felt completely alone when it happened to them as they didn’t know it was so common.

Can you relate to this? Have you ever been through something similar? Do you have a message of support for Zara during this difficult time?

    Give horse-riding a miss when you’re trying to fall pregnant, until a while after baby’s born…….

    Unusual for second pregnancy, but I suppose it can happen with any pregnancy.

      I had 2 successful pregnancies, then suffered 4 miscarriages before having another 2 babies. I know most miscarriages are more common with 1st pregnancies but they can occur with any pregnancy. All are devastating.

    Although I was pregnant many many times only once did I manage to get to 10 weeks.
    I experienced the morning sickness, the sore boobs and extreme tiredness until I painfully lost it on New Year’s Eve in 1982 due to Endometriosis.
    I understand only too well the heartache and the grief.
    My heart goes out to Zara and Mike and I hope they manage to have another baby.
