Zara and Mike Tindall expecting second child

Zara Tindall, the granddaughter of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, is pregnant with her second child, her spokeswoman said on Friday.

The Queen and the Royal Family were "very pleased" to hear the news, a Buckingham Palace spokesman said.

The couple are already parents to daughter Mia, who will be four later this month.

According to the BBC, Zara and Mike's new baby is expected to be born this summer, after the birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child.

The pregnancy comes just over a year after Ms Tindall suffered a miscarriage shortly before Christmas in 2016.

Zara's pregnancy comes just over a year after she tragically suffered a miscarriage, and Mike admitted at the time that their daughter Mia had been their "saving grace" throughout such a hard time. Tindall later said it had turned their world "upside down". He told the Sunday Times: "One thing you do learn is how many other people have to go through the same thing".

Mrs Tindall, who is the daughter of the Queen's only daughter, the Princess Royal, married Mr Tindall in 2011. The Tindalls also have a 3-year-old daughter Mia, who frequently steals the show at events. "I think that really is important in every child's life to have that opportunity".
