Zara Phillips, the former equestrian world champion and daughter of Princess Anne, has delayed her honeymoon to launch a new range of sports clothing, reports the Associated Press. Phillips married England rugby star Mike Tindall in a private ceremony in Edinburgh on Saturday (30th July 2011).
Despite the lavish wedding, with guests including Kate Middleton, Prince William and Queen Elizabeth II, Zara returned to work just two days later to launch her children's range of equestrian clothing. The 30-year-old said the couple had a busy life and were forced to delay the post-wedding trip, adding, "We're kind of missing the quiet period where we can catch up and have some sleep". Tindall arrived back at England's five-star training camp on Monday lunchtime to begin preparations for his team's upcoming World Cup campaign. The couple's nuptials were considerably more low-key than the royal wedding in April. Phillips, who does not use a royal title, has also decided to keep her maiden name for professional and sponsorship purposes but will be known as Mrs Tindall in private.
A former Bbc Sports Personality of the Year, Zara Phillips is reportedly keen to represent Team GB in the London Olympics 2012.
