Zara Phillips, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth, gears up for lavish wedding

07/29/2011 by Kristina Lopez

Another royal wedding is on the way! Zara Phillips, the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth and daughter of Princess Anne, is set to marry rugby player Mike Tindall on Saturday in Edinburgh, Scotland, the BBC reports.

It will be the first royal wedding to take place in Scotland in nearly 20 years and royal family members Prince William and Kate, Prince Harry, Prince Charles, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are among the expected guests.

Phillips, 30, and Tindall, 32, became engaged in December. She is 12th in line to the throne and met Tindall in 2003 during at the Rugby World Cup in Australia, which was won by England. Phillips is the daughter of Princess Anne, the Queen's only daughter, and her former husband, Captain Mark Phillips, an Olympic gold medal-winning equestrian.

The ceremony will be followed by a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse and the couple will kick off the festivities with a pre-wedding party on Friday night while on the royal yacht Britannia.

Unlike Prince William and Kate's grand wedding in April, the ceremony will not be televised and there will be no horse-drawn carriages, according to People. There is no information on the bridal party and only a few rumors about which designer Phillips will be wearing, which the magazine reports is Stuart Parvin.
