In an interview with the Sunday Times, Zara said at the time: “You need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw. But, as with everything, time’s a great healer.”

It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week – third Tindall on its way.

She added: “For me, the worst bit was that we had to tell everyone, everyone knew.

“I had to go through having the baby because it was so far along. I then had another miscarriage really early on.”
