Tony Blair's public revelation in 2002 that his wife had suffered a miscarriage halted rumors that his delayed vacation meant the Iraq invasion was imminent—but also appalled Cherie Blair, reports the Times of London. The former PM’s wife unveils some major revelations in her new autobiography, including that the Blairs conceived a child while visiting the queen: The ex-first lady didn’t pack contraceptives because she was embarrassed to take them through royal security.
“I couldn’t believe it. There I was, bleeding, and they were talking about what was going to be the line to the press. I put down the receiver and lay there staring at the ceiling as pain began to grip,” Cherie Blair writes.
