Later the couple had to tell their children Ludovic (11) and Iona (10) about it.

In addition, the TV star added: “When I finally came to Austria, which in itself was quite traumatic, I went to the hospital with the children …

“We have always had a very open, honest life with the public.

“When you are in the really privileged position of being in public.

“I don’t think you should gloss over your life, I don’t think you should pretend it’s idyllic when it isn’t.”

Fortunately, the couple have since undergone therapy to deal with their loss.

Ben takes out Piers Morgan

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Ben also appeared on Good Morning Britain.

During the performance, Ben closed host Piers Morgan after refusing to discuss the bullying allegations surrounding Meghan Markle.

Piers said, “I know you’re friends with William and Harry, you went to William’s wedding … that huge royal saga that plays out like a series from The Crown … what do you think?”

Ben also replied, “To be honest, Piers, I don’t want to evade your question. I think you overestimate my friendship with the protagonists you are talking about.

“I’m in the middle of the wilderness here, I’ve tried to abstain and stay out of other people’s business.”

GMB viewers later praised the star for politely declining the question.
