Zara Phillips engaged!

We here at the Royal Wedding Watch are focusing on Prince William and Kate Middleton, but we 1) are not terribly discriminating when it comes to British royalty and 2) like a good engagement story as much as the next reader. So: Congratulations to Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall, who reportedly got engaged just yesterday.

Phillips, the oldest granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, has been dating Tindall for seven years, according to the Guardian. Both are athletes -- Phillips is a former eventing world champion and was the BBC sports personality of the year in 2006; Tindall, who plays center for the Gloucester rugby club, has played for the English national team and was a member of the team that won the 2003 Rugby World Cup. They bought a house together last year but lived in a home on Princess Anne's property for a while before that.

No date has been announced yet, but we'll blog again when there's more news.
