Wedding of Miss Zara Phillips

Miss Zara Phillips, eldest granddaughter of HM The Queen of the United Kingdom, married her longtime boyfriend, rugby player Michael Tindall, today in Scotland. The wedding was a noticeably quieter affair in comparison to the nuptials of Miss Phillip's cousin, the Duke of Cambridge, but it did mark the first time a member of the Royal Family has been married in Scotland since the bride's mother, the Princess Royal, wed her current husband there in 1992.

The bride is wearing a tiara once owned by her great-grandmother, Princess Andrew of Greece and Denmark (born Princess Alice of Battenberg), the mother of Mrs. Tindall's grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. Princess Andrew gave the tiara to the Queen as a wedding gift in 1947, and the Queen later passed the tiara onto her daughter, the Princess Royal.
