British royal Zara Phillips and England rugby star Mike Tindall have agreed on a private wedding ceremony as they tie the knot on Saturday in Edinburgh.
Phillips, granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillips, is known for her feisty nature and has often been tagged as a "royal-rebel" by her close friends and acquaintances. The headstrong royal, 13th in line to the throne, is known for her unique style statements and is a qualified physiotherapist specializing in Equine Physiotherapy from the University of Exeter.
Tindall, on the other hand, comes from a middle-class family in England. His mother, Linda, is a social worker while his father, Phil, was a bank officer.
The couple met during England's Rugby World Cup-winning campaign in Australia in 2003 through Zara's cousin Prince Harry.
Although initially, the couple denied they were in any kind of relationship, it later became apparent as they were often seen together at various events.
Unlike the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Zara-Tindall wedding is said to be more of a "sports-personality wedding" rather than a royal one.
The Telegraph UK reported that Zara "will spend Friday night at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and will be driven 400 yards down the Royal Mile to Canongate Kirk on Saturday afternoon, together with senior members of the Royal family including her mother, the Princess Royal, the Queen, the Prince of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge."
Officials at the Canonngate Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland, where the wedding will take place, are busy preparing for the wedding and the arrival of many friends and members of the royal family.
