The Queen gave her consent to their marriage in May 2011 and their wedding was held on July 30, 2011 at the Canongate Kirkin Edinburgh, Scotland.

They live together in a cottage on her mother's Gloucestershire estate, Gatcombe Park, with Mia. 

The couple tragically suffered a miscarriage in December last year - Zara is believed to have been four months into her pregnancy.

At the time a spokesperson for the couple announced they had lost their unborn second child.

A statement read: 'Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy.'
