Zara and Mike Tindall have made their first public appearance together after Zara tragically suffered a miscarriage in December.

The couple attended the Pacific Fair Magic Million Polo in Queensland, Australia, and smiled while posing for photos together. Zara was dressed for the hot weather in a white lace dress and strappy sandals with a pair of sunglasses before changing into a riding outfit to take part in a game of polo. A spokesperson for the royal couple confirmed that Zara was "keen and ready to play" the game, and although the 35-year-old fell off her horse during the sport she was unhurt, and Mike told the crowd: "That's her will to win. She's tough, she bounces."

This has been the couple's first appearance since the sad news that Zara had suffered a miscarriage, which was announced on Christmas Eve just under a month after the couple confirmed that they were expecting their second child together. In a statement, their spokesperson said: "Very sadly, Zara and Mike Tindall have lost their baby. At this difficult time, we ask that everyone respects their privacy."

The couple share daughter Mia, who will turn three this month, and the proud dad has spoken about his little girl. "She's got quite a little personality on her, and we encourage that," he told Good Morning Britain. Zara has also spoken about Mia about the importance of an active lifestyle. "We have always had sport in our lives and through our childhood," she said. "I think that really is important in every child's life to have that opportunity. I think we have got it off our parents and hopefully we can pass that on to Mia."
