Mike Tindell is a professional rugby player and the couple have dated for quite sometime. It is no surprise they are engaged.
The wedding date has not been set, but royal watchers can expect a small wedding compared to that of Zara’s cousin, HRH Prince William of Wales. Mr. Tindell proposed to Miss Phillips at the couple’s home in Gloucestershire, England on Monday.
The official announcement per the official website for the British royal family:
The Princess Royal and Captain Mark Phillips are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter Zara Phillips to Mr Mike Tindall.
