Zara Phillips Engaged

The coming year will be filled with royal romance as Anglophiles anxiously await not only the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, but also that of the Queen’s granddaughter, equestrian Zara Phillips.

The 12th in line to the throne is first in the heart of rugby player Mike Tindall, who felt that there was no place like their Cheltenham, Gloucestershire home to take their first step toward a life together as husband and wife. The prospective groom presented the daughter of Princess Anne with an early Christmas present on the evening of December 20, 2010– an engagement ring featuring a diamond solitaire resting on a platinum band, The Telegraph reports.

The happy couple, who have been an item for the past seven years, have yet to announce a date for their impending I do’s.
