An emotional Zara Tindall spoke today of her anguish after suffering two miscarriages with her husband and former England rugby captain, Mike Tindall.
The former Olympic player and granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II was at the BBC breakfast this morning talking about the emotional impact that the losses had on the couple.
She said: "It's very different for us because we take the child, but for the boys, I suppose it's a kind of feeling of helplessness, which must be incredibly loud and horrible for them. At the end of the day, they still lost a child. "

She revealed that she suffered another miscarriage before becoming pregnant with Lena, who was born in June of this year.
In a joint interview with her brother Peter Phillips, Mrs. Tindall told the Sunday Times: "For me, the worst thing was that we had to tell everyone, everyone knew."
The 37-year-old continued, "I had to go through having the baby because I had advanced so much, then I had another very early spontaneous abortion."
The equestrian winner of the Olympic medal is married to the former England rugby captain, Mike Tindall. The couple has a four-year-old daughter, Mia and Lena.
