Zara Phillips has spoken about her pregnancy, saying it came as a complete shock to her.

In a joint interview with her husband Mike Tindall, Zara told Australian Women's Weekly that being pregnant disrupted her eventing schedule.

According to the Mail Online, Mike said: "It probably happened quicker than we thought - bit of a shock, really."

The Queen's granddaughter, who won a silver medal at last year's Olympics, said she had been horse riding but it had proven "uncomfortable". We can't even imagine, Zara!

But she insisted she would be back in the saddle after giving birth and even hopes to compete in the World Eventing Championships next August.

The couple don't know if they are having a boy or a girl, with Mike adding that they wanted it to be a surprise.

The baby will be just a few months younger than Prince George, who was christened earlier this week. And Zara was looking amazing for the event, glowing in her maternity get-up.
