Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall postpone honeymoon

Wednesday March 23, 2011

They might have found time in their hectic schedules to plan a wedding.

But for Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall, the honeymoon will have to wait.

The couple – due to wed on July 30 - are so busy with their respective sporting careers that they have had to delay their post-wedding getaway.

It has been confirmed that rugby ace Mike, 32, intends to play for England one week after his marriage to Zara.

And that same weekend, his new wife will be busy competing at the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park, her family home.

In fact both Zara and Mike are busy with sporting commitments until the end of October.

A spokesman for Princess Anne's 29-year-old daughter confirmed: "They haven’t made any plans for their honeymoon yet.

"They will grab a holiday when they can – it's always last minute for them because of their busy schedules.

"When they were looking at wedding dates it was never an issue. They always knew it would be business as usual on the Monday after the wedding."
