Zara Phillips

Zara Phillips has suffered a miscarriage less than a month after announcing her pregnancy. 

The 35-year-old and her rugby player husband, Mike Tindall, 38, are now grieving their loss together, although it is not believed that the British royal is in any medical danger. 

The duo, who married in 2011, already have a three-year-old daughter, Mia.

It seems that she was about four months into her pregnancy with the baby due in late spring.

A spokeswoman for the couple confirmed: "Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy."

The Tindalls were due to spend Christmas with the Queen and their extended family in Norfolk.

Zara is, of course, a granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and a cousin to princes William and Harry. She is also a equestrian champion and holds an Olympic silver medal from London 2012.

We weren’t sure WHAT to make of the recent rumour that Prince Harry and his former flame, South African hottie Chelsey Davey, were on the verge of reuniting

Frankly, we didn’t want to believe it – not least because we’re definitely still confident of stealing his heart (oh, and nabbing a crown in the process).

And now our aspirations of marrying well have been thrown a second curve-ball in as many days: the royal and ANOTHER gorgeous ex have been spotted on a night-out looking rather chummy.

In fact, while celebrating his 31st birthday in London earlier this week, Harry and one-time love-interest Cressida Bonas, 26, seemed very much like the cosy couple.

Cue another million hearts (including our own!) breaking.

Of course, the fifth-in-line to the British throne has very much embraced the role of a bachelor playboy prince in recent years.

But significantly, Ms Bonas – a well-to-do actress and dancer – recently broke up with her boyfriend. And it seems in the aftermath of her heartache Mr Wales is happy to at least reconsider his own single status.

On Tuesday evening (although they partied into Wednesday too), the prince and a gaggle of close friends, including his cousin Zara Phillips and her rugby-player husband Mike Tindall, gathered at posh The Cross Keys pub in Chelsea. 

By the early hours the party was still very much in full swing, and along with a select handful of others, Cressida was invited back to Kensington Palace to continue the birthday celebrations.

Cressida is the youngest daughter of socialite Lady Mary Curzon and businessman Jeffrey Bonas, as well as granddaughter of Edward Curzon, 6th Earl Howe. 

She met the young British prince through his cousin, Princess Eugenie, in 2012 and the pair went on to date for two years.

As granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, Zara Phillips is used to a life in the spotlight.

And while she certainly seems to lead a relatively normal existence with her former rugby player husband, Mike Tindall, and their toddler daughter, Mia Grace – earlier this year she experienced some of the downsides of fame.

In January on a Sydney beach dressed down in shorts and a t-shirt, online commentators called her 'chunky'.

Meanwhile, just last month, the 34-year-old was at the receiving end of numerous pregnancy rumours. Wearing an ill-fitting yellow shift dress to Royal Ascot, the resulting photographs seems to show the hints of a baby bump. 

Such was the fervour, in fact, that her publicist was forced to issue a statement saying that Zara was certainly not expecting.

It didn't help, of course, that at the time a streamlined Duchess Kate was looking incredibly slim mere weeks after giving birth to her second child, Princess Charlotte.

Indeed, public comparisons between the two women was almost inevitable. 

But while Ms Phillips, an Olympic silver medallist, has never seemed like the type to get upset over the odd bit of bad lighting and or bad angles, turning up at the K Club in Kildare yesterday, she nevertheless looked incredibly fit and slim.

Wearing a tiny black playsuit and black strappy sandals, the mother-of-one looked stunning posing alongside Mike.

The high-profile duo jetted into Ireland to attend the swish Marks & Spencer Ireland Marie Keating Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic. 

Now in its 16th year, the event is definitely one of the highlights of the golfing calendar – and certainly always attracts an A-list crowd. 

Raising much-needed funds for the cancer foundation, the likes of actors Dougray Scott and Stephen Graham, rugby legend Shane Byrne, and former footballers Ian Wright and Ronnie Whelan were all spotted on the famed Kildare course. 

Also in attendance was Ronan Keating and his fiancee Storm Uechtritz, Keith Duffy, who brought along his handsome son Jay, stylist Suzanne Goggins, and Chanel marketing manager Ciara Hughes Dunleavy.

Guests enjoyed a drinks reception followed by a four-course meal in The Arnold Palmer Room with wine and champagne from M&S. 

Entertainment was provided by comedian Stan Boardman and singer Cole Page. 

Brothers Ronan and Gary Keating also hosted an auction with items such as golf merchandise signed by Rory McIlroy going under the hammer to raise funds for the worthy cause.
