Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall announce engagement

Tuesday December 21, 2010

Prince William is not the only British royal with a wedding to plan.

It has been announced that his cousin Zara Phillips is engaged to her long-term boyfriend Mike Tindall.

"The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter Zara Phillips to Mr Mike Tindall," a notice read on the British Monarchy Twitter page on Tuesday.

The Queen's 29-year-old granddaughter and her rugby player love have been dating for around seven years.

Speaking to HELLO! last year, Mike, 32, said "I don’t think its about whether we will get married but when."

"There's no doubt that I love Zara but it has to be the right time…And yes it probably will be a white wedding, although sometimes I can see the attraction of sneaking away without telling anyone."
