Buckingham Palace said it would not comment on the private matter, but a spokesperson confirmed the loss. “At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy,” the rep told BBC.

Zara, an Olympic equestrian, and Mike, a former rugby player, have a two-year-old-daughter named Mia. She won hearts worldwide when she took part in a portrait taken with the queen in honor of the monarch’s 90th birthday. The toddler is seen in the photo proudly clutching her great grandmother’s handbag in both hands.
