Zara Tindall reveals she was ‘uncomfortable’ during Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s wedding

And her reason why was pretty understandable.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated their one year wedding anniversary in May, 12 months since they held an historic, beautiful ceremony that was watched by thousands of adoring fans across the world and attended by their friends and family and some of the most notable people from around the globe.
And while all eyes were on the happy couple throughout the day, there were a few moments that caught the attention of some eagle-eyed viewers, in particular Zara Tindall looking a little uneasy throughout the ceremony.
Of course at the time, Zara, 38, was eight months pregnant with Lena and confessed to the The Telegraph that she had indeed been "uncomfortable" during the service because the baby had been "kicking the hell out of her" for an hour, Hello! reports.

The Queen's eldest granddaughter confessed, "I was uncomfortable! My bum sort of slid over either side and Lena kicked the hell out of me for an hour.
"I wasn't comfy at all and it probably showed on my face."
During the service the Harry and Meghan had a guest speaker from the United States, Bishop Michael Curry, who gave a passionate speech about love – which also happened to last a lengthy 13 minutes – something church-goers in the UK probably aren't accustomed to.
"It was just the general amount of time everything was taking," Zara added.
"I think my face was probably caught at the point when I thought, 'Right he's going to finish now,' and then he went off on another little story and it was like, 'Really?'"
The Queen's eldest granddaughter didn't look very impressed during Harry and Meghan's wedding ceremony.
Princess Anne's daughter welcomed baby Lena one month later on June 18th, her second daughter with former English rugby star Mike Tindall.
Shortly after the arrival of their second child Mike revealed to Hello! that Mia, 5, was a brilliant older sister.
"Mia is very happy to be a big sister, she is happy about that.
"We are lucky that people that have sent Lena a present have also thought about Mia, so she is getting stuff to open as well," he shared.

Further down the line of succession and not holding a royal title like the rest of her cousins, the Tindalls are afforded a more "normal" life than more senior royals like her cousins Prince William and Prince Harry and their young families.
"The difference between Zara and Princes William and Harry are as much as night and day," a palace spokesperson has previously revealed.
"Because she's grown up without the weight and expectation of a title, she's been allowed to develop her own person. She is without a doubt the most independent, smart and wildly funny member of her generation of the monarchy.
"She's incredibly grateful to Princess Anne for allowing her this freedom. You can bet Meghan and Harry have noticed that and taken a leaf out of Anne's book."
The Princess Royal, along with her ex-husband Mark Phillips, turned down titles for their children, Zara and Peter, which has allowed them to lead relatively normal lives.
"My life would probably have been very different if I'd been a princess," says Zara, who is mum to Mia and Lena.
"My parents didn't give me or my brother titles, so we've been able to have a slightly more normal upbringing. As soon as you have got a title, it is very difficult to shed it. I'm very lucky that both my parents decided not to use the title. We grew up and did all the things that gave us the chance to do."
"I am perfectly happy as I am. But then, they're my family, so obviously I kind of am."
