Zara Phillips skips honeymoon and heads back to work

It was back to the day job for the new Mrs Tindall yesterday, as she admitted she will have to 'wait a bit' for her honeymoon

Despite only tying the knot to rugby player fiance Mike Tindall on Sunday, it was back to the day job for Zara Phillps yesterday, as she stepped out to launch a new range of children’s equestrian clothing.

The new Mrs Tindall – who is the face of outdoor brand Musto – admitted her disappointment at having to ‘wait a bit’ for a honeymoon, but added her low-key nuptials at Edinburgh’s Canongate Kirk were ‘amazing.’

Speaking of the special ceremony, attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – among other royals – and many of the couples workmates, Zara said she loved having both friends and family at the low-key event.

‘The day was amazing and to have all of your friends there in one place, for both of us, was the best part of it,’ the newlywed told reporters. 

‘Unfortunately both of us do have quite busy lives so we’re going to have to wait a bit for a honeymoon, but it is quite nice to go back to work as well.

‘We’re kind of missing the quiet period where we can catch up and have some sleep. It’s back to work and that’s what we do.’

The 30-year-old royal also opened up on how she will be taking her husband’s name, adding she’s ‘very much Mrs Tindall.’

‘I’m very much Mrs Tindall and will be privately and I’m sure publicly as well, but just for professional and sponsors I’m going to keep Phillips as well – I’ll keep both of them!’

On snaps of her hubby the morning after the nuptials in the previous days’ crumpled clothing, Zara joked it was ‘not a good look,’ laughing: ‘We tried to sneak out the back but we were talking too long and in the end everyone ended up seeing. I was just so glad I remembered my clothes’
