Happy news at the end of the year for the royal family of England. Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter Zara Tindall is pregnant with her third child. It was her husband Mike Tindall who announced it this Wednesday, December 9 in his podcast, The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, which he co-hosts. “I had a really good week, thanks to a little scanner last week: the third Tindall is on its way!” he announced at the microphone of his show. Mike and Zara Tindall are already the parents of two little girls, 6-year-old Mia Grace and 2-year-old Lena Elizabeth. They will soon be joined by a little brother or sister conceived in the midst of a pandemic. An anecdote on which the future dad and former rugby player did not fail to joke: “We do not yet know what to do, Covi or Covina, I do not yet know which name to choose”, had fun the one who would dream to welcome a little boy into the family.
Like his mother and big-sisters, from birth, the baby will also occupy a place of choice within the order of succession to the throne of England. For now, Zara Tindall is 18th in the list, followed by her two daughters Mia and Lena respectively at 19th and 20th position. It is therefore logically in the 21st place that the third child of the daughter of Princess Anne will be classified. He will thus be the last of the direct line of Elizabeth II.
Difficulties in becoming a mother
The path to motherhood has not always been easy for Zara Tindall. Like Meghan Markle not long ago, Zara Tindall revealed that she had had two miscarriages in 2016 and 2017, before giving birth to her second daughter. Two terrible ordeals during which she had been able to benefit from the support of her husband. “You have to let a period pass when you don’t talk about it, because it’s raw. But as with everything, time heals us.” she said at the time in the Sunday Times.
