Congrats to the Tindalls. It's wonderful news after the heartbreaking news last time.

As for those concerned because of her age and last miscarriage. I'm sure she's cleared it with her doctor beforehand. Most women who are 35+ and pregnant can still fly. And we don't know what happened last time, so we don't if that's actually a factor here.

But I am a bit surprised that her gynecologist allowed her to travel for such a long distance (from the UK to Australia - at least two plane changes), considering her age (35+) and previous miscarriage.
Maybe she's 5 or 6 months along and everything looks good to the doctor.

I’ve got a feeling she could be 20ish weeks as I’m sure they would have waited as long as possible to announce. Could even have a due date around the same time as Kate.

When she was pregnant with Mia she was riding/showing well into her pregnancy. I would imagine she's still riding even now. Flying shouldn't be a big concern.

The eventing season in the U.K. runs March to October. So she is probably not going to compete this year unless she enters some events late in the season. Riding a horse and riding said horse over a cross country course is two different things. The olympics aren’t until 2020 so she will have time to try to make the team for Tokyo after the baby comes.

IIRC, and I am not sure, she didn't event while pregnant with Mia. I just recall show jumping and dressage. She's probably doing the usual routine riding at this point.

It will be interesting to see if she tries for the Olympic team and if she can make it if she does.

With Mia, she announced the pregnancy in June, did some eventing at first, then announced she wasn’t going to compete any further in July until post-pregnancy, but continued doing dressage in August.

This pregnancy will likely be different just because of the timing - with Mia she announced midway through the season, and was able to be back in the saddle early on in the following season.

This time round it might be harder to compete in the season because she’s pregnant earlier in the season. She’s likely to be in good form for next year though.

Not sure when qualifications for the 2020 Olympics are though...

To the category of "successful news" we can add also the fact, that HM The Queen and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh are still here to live their Platinum Anniversary'; so few couples have this luck.
As for Zara and Harry's engagement - I am sure she is happy for him.

Oh, I forgot:
Congrats not only to future parents and big sister but also for grandparents and great-grandparents!

Just for curiosity: Is Mike an only child? His bigraphy in English Wikipedia does not mention his siblings.
He has an older brother, Ian. One of the reasons he proposed when he did was his older brother got engaged, he said it motivated him to be ready for that next step. His brother married a couple months before Mike and Zara.

If they do it similar to how the US does they were doing the trials just a few months out from Rio.

That is great news! I had a feeling she was pregnant after seeing the photos from the family trip in Australia. I wish them a smooth and healthy pregnancy

Agreed. I wouldn't be surprised if her due date is around Catherine's or a little later.

I too wondered about the Australian photo and that was almost all we saw of her.

So, congratulations to Mike, Zara and little Miss Mia. I pray all goes well and Mia gets her very own baby doll to show off.

One plane change.

If she flew with BA she would go Heathrow - Singapore and then Singapore to Sydney (as does Singapore Airlines)

QANTAS goes via Dubai - London-Dubai; Dubai-Sydney

Cathay goes via Hong Kong

Thai via Bangkok etc

but it is only one change and depending on how long they are on the ground they may even have stayed at a local hotel for a few days.

She would probably have flown at least Business Class so lie-flat beds available the entire distance on most of the above airlines these days as well

I have done this trip many times and the old days of the three legs were gone by the mid-90s to now being only a two-leg journey.
