Miscarriages are a lot more common than people think, it's just that most people don't talk about it much. I know of at least four women in my family who have had miscarriages-one relative ended up never being able to have kids.

I was just reading royal news from 2002 and there was a Dutch press release that read as follows:

Princess Margarita of Bourbon-Parma, Contessa di Colorno (daughter of Prince Carlos Hugo of Bourbon-Parma and of Princess Irene of the Netherlands) and her husband, Edwin de Roy van Zuydewijn, are expecting their first child in December.

Can anyone comment as to what happened?

Eliza

The last I heard about that couple was that Princess Margarita had been accepted back into the family (a very nice thing considering all the harm and pain she caused them), and she was getting a divorce from that reportedly gold-digging publicity-hound of a husband of hers. I think they've been separated for a long time though, so I think the pregnancy story was bogus to begin with.

I can't remember anything of that kind, I know nothing but the things
SpiffyBallerina said too, but maybe other Dutch members here know more on the subject than I do?

I have never heard about these Margarita rumours before either, so I wonder in which newspaper it was published.

Anyway, Princess Marguerite of Liechtenstein, nee Pss of Luxembourg had a miscarriage in the 80-ties. I believe she grew esp. close to her aunt Fabiola in those days.

It is rumoured (falsely probably) that Beatrix had a stillborn twinbrother. Queen Wilhelmina definately had a few miscarriages.

Margaretha, princess of Luxembourg, spouse of Nikolaus, prinz von und zu Liechtenstein, had a stillborn baby, Leopold Emmanuel, on may 20th 1984.

I heard from different media that CP Mathilde had a miscarriage during first year of her marriage.
Queen Sonja - as CPss had two miscarriages - before and after Martha's birth.

From long past Queen Bona (nee Sforza, 1495 - 1558) wife of King Zygmunt I Jagiellonczyk had a miscarriage. During horse-riding her son - later king Zygmunt II August scare his mother's horse and the queen fell. (She expect second son.)

Was Elena of Spain 3 months gone when her father announced her pregnancy?

I never knew she had had a miscarriage.

Recently I have heard of so many people in my family/friends circle having them, must be very difficult.

I think if I was Royalty and had one I would acknowlegde it publicly, I would not keep it a secret. I would not blurt it out but you would need time off to get over it, I would tell the truth and not pretend it had not happened. Nothing to be ashamed of.

I think we have the same book Liv, because I have a book that says the same. In the book it says she had the miscarriage in February 2001, which can't be right, because Elisabeth was born in October that same year. I do believe the rumors about a miscarriage was from February 2000, like magnik posted, so maybe the fact was misplaced in the book. However, in the book it also says that Albert is not Laurent's father. That's not true, so I don't really believe the story about Mathilde having a miscarriage.

She did have one miscarriage in 1967 but I'm not sure at all about October. She was in Montreal for Expo67 which was a summer event. She was treated at the Royal Victoria Hospital.

The Duchess of Kent had a miscarriage in the 1970's. It caused her great depression and sorrow.

Many famous royal women have had miscarriages, and unfortunately for some of them, it cost them their lives, titles, and the children they did have. Katharine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn come to mind.

Katharine of Aragon's first pregnancy was thought to be twins and that she had only miscarried one of the babies, which was a girl. Her doctors told her that there was still another baby in her womb because she still looked very pregnant. She took to her chamber for the birth but the time came and went. Her stomach deflated and the doctors had to concede there was only one child not two. Katharine was mortified as was King Henry VIII.

The Empress Alexandra Feodorovna miscarried a boy on her second pregnancy in 1896. The Imperial Family was quite angry that she miscarried a boy after only giving them a girl in 1895. Alexandra had to wait until July 1905 and 3 daughters later to have her son. The joy soon gave way to tears when it was discovered he was a hemophiliac.
