The Queen’s eldest granddaughter, 37, spoke of her secret second heartache before she gave birth to daughter Lena.

Zara, married to ex-rugby star Mike Tindall, had announced she was pregnant with her second child in 2016 but a spokeswoman revealed she had sadly lost the child.

And speaking on Good Morning Britain her brother Peter revealed how the family had been extremely “protective” of  his sister during her devastating loss.

Peter said: “Of course you want to be protective of her, it’s a testament to us as a family that she did manage to go through the second miscarriage without the world knowing.

“We all rallied round and it was a really tough time for her and Mike and fortunately we all live relatively close to one and another so it was good to be there to be supportive.”

The proud brother said how Zara would always be his “annoying little sister” – but that he knew she was a fantastic mother.

Peter was appearing on the morning show to discuss the Festival of British Eventing with dad Captain Mark Phillips.

Zara had previously opened up about her second miscarriage, saying: “I think you need to go through a period where you don’t talk about it because it’s too raw.

“But, as with everything, time’s a great healer.”

Princess Anne’s daughter Zara, explained her first miscarriage was doubly tough because the pregnancy had been made public – the rule for descendants of the Queen.

But she said she found comfort in people writing to her saying they had been through the same experience.

When she lost the second baby, the couple were able to mourn in private.

Second daughter Lena was born in June.

The equestrian champion, who was named Sports Personality of the Year in 2006, said her older brother Peter Phillips was very “protective” of her, as was husband Mike.

Zara’s brave decision to speak publicly about her double loss was praised by Ruth Bender-Atik, national director of the Miscarriage Association.
