Zara, who is a skilled equestrian, has voiced that she was stunned but extremely delighted on being proposed by Tindall.

The twosome will have company on the royal matrimonial calendar as their engagement has emerged a month subsequent to Prince William and Kate Middleton pronouncing that they would get hitched. Zara is attached to her cousin, Prince William, and she is the 12th in line to the British crown. The date of her connubial ceremony has not yet been declared. Prince William is scheduled to tie the knot with the commoner, Kate Middleton, at Westminster Abbey on April 29 next year.

The BP has vocalized that the two executed their engagement on Monday evening at their residence in western England. Tindall has verbalized that he is extremely thrilled that the engagement has occurred. He is keen to commence the next phase of his life together with Zara. The BP has proclaimed that the Queen and her husband, Phillip, are satisfied with this news.

Zara, the daughter of Princess Anne, adores horses and has triumphed at the global equestrian tournaments on many occasions. She was also declared once as the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. Zara and her brother, Peter, are among the unassuming members of the royal family and the only ones among the Queen’s eight grandchildren not to occupy royal titles.

Tindall has competed on 66 occasions for England and was a member of the squad that triumphed at the Rugby World Cup in 2003. It was during that World Cup that Tindall first interacted with Zara in a Sydney bar. Tindall competes for his club, Gloucestershire, and is still an integral component of the national team.
