The Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall and her husband, Mike, have lost their baby, a spokeswoman for the couple has said.
The couple had been expecting their second child around the end of spring 2017. Their first daughter, Mia, will be three next month.
Zara, an equestrian champion, and Mike, a former England rugby player, announced the pregnancy at the end of November.
On Saturday a spokeswoman for the couple said: “Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.”

The baby would have been the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh’s sixth great-grandchild.
