Second Royal wedding fashion debate

News of a second Royal wedding has again sparked the question: ‘What will the bride and groom wear on the momentus day?’

Buckingham Palace announced today that Zara Phillips, 12th in line to the throne and the Queen’s granddaughter, is to marry England rugby international and long-term boyfriend Mike Tindall.

Comparisons between the two Royal weddings - Prince William will marry Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey on April 29 next year – are rife, however Phillips’ and Middleton’s style tastes differ greatly.

At the announcement of their engagement Phillips and Tindall chose jeans, jumpers and fleeces for their photographs outside their Gloucestershire home.

Phillips an equestrian rider and former eventing world champion, designed a range for sportswear brand Musto last year and Tindall has previously worn suits by tailor Cad & The Dandy.

It is not known when Phillips, who is the daughter of Princess Anne, and Tindall will marry but it is thought that it could also be in 2011 in the summer or autumn.

Tindall told Hello magazine last year: “There’s no doubt I love Zara but it has to be the right time and, yes, it will probably be a white wedding, although sometimes I can see the attraction of sneaking away without telling anyone.”
