Zara Tindall is pregnant with her third child, her husband Mike announced on the podcast he co-hosts The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, saying: “It’s been a good week for me, had a little scan last week – third Tindall on its way.”

Zara is the second child of Princess Anne, The Queen’s only daughter. Her older brother, Peter Phillips was born on 15 November 1977. She also has two younger half-sisters, Felicity Tonkin and Stephanie Phillips through her father. At the time of her birth, she was sixth-in-line to the throne, and like her brother Peter, Zara does not hold any royal title.

Prince Harry introduced her to Mike Tindall in 2003 at the Rugby World Cup in Sydney, Australia. On 21 December 2010, Buckingham Palace announced that Zara and Mike were to marry the next year, and on 30 July 2011, they married at the Canongate Kirk in Scotland. On 8 July 2013, Buckingham Palace announced that Zara was expecting their first child. Their daughter, Mia Grace Tindall was born on 17 January 2014.

On 30 November 2016, Zara and Mike announced that Zara was pregnant with their second child due to be born in the late spring in 2017. The pregnancy, tragically, ended in miscarriage. However, on 18 June 2018, Zara gave birth to a daughter named Lena. The family lives in Gloucestershire on the Princess Royal’s Gatcombe Park country estate.
