LONDON. Queen Elizabeth II's eldest grand-daughter and champion showjumper Zara Phillips is to wed Mike Tindall, the England rugby union captain, in Edinburgh on July 30, Buckingham Palace said Wednesday.
"Miss Zara Phillips and Mr Mike Tindall will be married at the Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh, on Saturday, 30th July," the brief statement said.
"The couple will hold a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse following the ceremony."
Holyroodhouse is the sovereign's official residence in Scotland.
The second British royal wedding this year will come almost exactly three months after Phillips's cousin Prince William, the second in line to the throne, marries his university sweetheart Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London on April 29.
