You know what it’s like with Royal Weddings, you wait ages for one to come along and then two come in quick succession. This weekend see’s Edinburgh play host to Zara Phillips and her marriage to England Rugby star Mike Tindall. It will just be a quiet family affair with her parents and grand parents and some of Mike’s work colleagues.
Except when the bride’s grandparents are the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh and the groom’s workmates are the England Rugby team. Their choice of Edinburgh raised a few eyebrows at the time but eveyone in the city is delighted with their choice. The festivities begin this evening at The Royal Yacht Britannia with a private reception, followed by the exchange of vows at Canongate Kirk and then followed by a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
