Officials say Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter, Zara Tindall, has suffered a miscarriage.

She and her husband, retired rugby player Mike Tindall, had been expecting their second child. The pregnancy was announced last month.

A spokeswoman for the couple said Saturday the couple have "lost their baby" and asked for privacy during a difficult time.

“Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby,” said the spokesperson in a statement on Saturday. “At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.”

Zara Tindall, the daughter of Princess Anne, was a champion equestrian using her maiden name Zara Phillips. She switched to her married name this year.

The couple have a 2-year-old daughter, Mia.

The baby had been expected in late spring.
