Zara Tindall, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, and her husband Mike recently welcomes their second child. But, the royal has always been open about how difficult the journey to growing their family was.
The 37-year-old has now spoken to BBC Breakfast, speaking on how 'horrible' it was dealing with her miscarriages before welcoming baby girl Lena in June.
'It’s very different for us, because we’re carrying the child, but for guys I guess it’s kind of that helpless feeling, which must be incredibly horrible for them,' she told in an emotional interview withBBC.
'At the end of the day they’ve still lost a child too.'
'It’s been a horrible road but, you know, actually now we’ve come out the end of it, hopefully it makes you a stronger family,' she said.
Zara added that 'everyone knowing' was something the couple had to overcome.
'In our situation, everyone knew. And very much when things like that happen, normally it’s just your family and friends, but unfortunately everyone knew about it,' she said, though she thanked royal fans for their support through the years — particularly those who shared they, too, suffered miscarriages.
Mia steps out with her mum, dad and baby sister
Zara, the daughter of Princess Anne, lost a child just days before Christmas in 2006 - months after announcing she was expecting.
'Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby,' her spokesperson told PEOPLEin a statement at the time.
'At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.'
Months later, Mike Tindall, a former England rugby captain, opened up about the family's painful loss.
Mike told The Times, 'When I was playing I hardly saw her. Now we can see her grow up,' speaking of his oldest daughter Mia.
'However down we feel, she will come running up in our faces.'
