Eventingrider Zara Tindall and her husband Mike are expecting their second child this year. The Queen and the Royal family are said to be “very pleased” to hear the couple’s news.
The couple have a three-year-old daughter, Mia. The Queen already has five great-grandchildren, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are also expecting a baby in April. Zara, 36, is best known for her partnership with Toytown, with whom she took individual eventing gold at the 2005 Europeans on her senior championship debut.
The combination’s other highlights included second at Burghley CCI4* in 2003, world individual eventing gold in 2006 and European team gold in 2007.
