Royal wedding bells just haven’t stopped ringing since Will and Kate said ‘I do’. Queen Elizabeth’s eldest grandaughter, Zara Phillips is the next in line. She’ll wed her rugby playing fiance Mike Tindall on Saturday. Here’s what we know so far.
The ceremony will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland at the quaint church, Canongate Kirk. The couple are hosting a yacht party right now on the Royal Yacht Britannia -- the same boat Prince Charles and Princess Diana honeymooned on after their wedding (which, by the way, was 30 years ago today).
Now let’s address the biggest, most exciting rumor that we’re hoping is true. Kate Middleton may be walking down the aisle again — this time as a bridesmaid! We think the chances of this actually happening are slim to none, but it’s still a slight possibility. Prince William is Zara’s first cousin and she attended his nuptials (although she was not in the wedding party.) If Kate isn’t a bridesmaid, we’re not getting our hopes up for a new outfit — the Princess showed up to the yacht party in same the green DVF dress she wore during her stay in L.A.
As for Zara, The Daily Mail reports she’ll be wearing her grandmum the queen’s favorite designer, Stewart Parvin. Hopefully we’ll be able to see her in it — word has it that Zara doesn’t want any wedding snapshots going public.
Friday, Prince William and Kate surfaced in Edinburgh, where they boarded a family yacht for an evening reception toasting William's cousin and her soon-to-be-groom, rugby player Mike Tindall.
Kate, clad in the same green silk Diane von Furstenberg "Maja" dress she wore for an event in Los Angeles, gave onlookers a new view of her frock, showing off the delicate buttons that run down the back. Her husband followed closely behind.
Also in attendance: Prince Harry, the princes' cousins (and daughters of Duchess Sarah Ferguson) Princess Eugenie in red and Beatrice in purple. Also spotted: Kate's mother, Carole Middleton.
After the wedding ceremony at Canongate Kirk, guests will celebrate with the newlyweds into the night at the Holyroodhouse castle.
