Oh I do love the photos of their engagement! The ring is lovely and I absolutely LOVE their regency townhouse!!!!! I really admire Zara and Mike because they are so busy with their individual professions and balance this with a strong relationship.

Zara said it was a surprise and I believe it given the state of her nails - can you imagine the criticisms if Catherine's nails had looked like that in her photos? I don't know enough about Rugby seasons to have a clue when they could have a break to marry especially given Zara's equestrian career's demands. They seem well suited to each other.

Rugby is normally played in winter but due to the world wide nature of the sport the World Cup is usually played between the end of the southern hemisphere season and the start of the northern hemisphere season - thus normally September, October, November.

In a normal year Mike would finish his club season early May and then havce a tour to somewhere in the southern hemisphere for international matches before resting about August/September before starting his own club season again and also having southern hemisphere teams tour the northern hemisphere. However in a World Cup year the window is much smaller as the normal resting months are shortened to allow for preparation for and competition in the World Cup. Assuming Mike is still intending on playing (and I see no reason at this point that he wouldn't) at the international level he will have a very busy year next year.

If you look really closely you can see some dirt under them.

There is a comment in an article published today about Harry, Eugenie and Beatrice clubbing.
The comment is

How can there be 2 royal weddings when Zara keeps reminding people she has no royal title?

She does have a point.

Zara isn't a royal herself but she is a member of the royal family.

i think they make a really lovely couple, and the ring is drop dead gorgeous (much better than a certain sapphire).
Now Zara and Mike will be able to sit together at Prince William's wedding.
I think Zara, as a bride, will look stunning, and I bet she wears the fringe tiara her mother and grandmother wore.

One article I read quoted Mike's mother as saying his brother, Ian, was getting married in August, so July or Sept.?

I think it very good news, too. I admire Zara and her hard work and her many successes and wish both of them everything that's good and happy for their future.

Unlike most, I'm not too rapt in the engagement ring, but obviously she and Mike like it which is all that really matters. Mine is almost identical to Diana/Kate's though not as large and certainly nowhere as expensive (!) and it's always irked me that people assume that it's a copy, whereas I had mine first!

These recent engagements and marriages are doing a great deal of good for the Royal Family, I feel. It's refreshing to see press coverage concentrating on their wholesome and normal family concerns, interests and pre-occupations rather than ugly rumours and beat-ups.

The hard working and entirely admirable Princess Royal must be feeling very pleased and happy, too.

Congratulations to all of Zara's family.

No way September - at this point Mike would be planning on being in New Zealand with the English Rugby team for the Rugby World Cup.

Early July will see Zara presumably competing in the 3-Day Eventing Olympic Trials.

Late July us possible but the honeymoon would be delayed until late October as Mike has rugby commitments (assuming he is selected and I see no reason that he won't ber) for the English squad as they have tests in the lead up to the world cup throughout August and then the World Cup itself from early September to mid-October.

I wonder if Mike will get his nose fixed! Wow! He makes Zara look beautiful when they stand side by side.
However, on another note, I wonder what tiara Zara will wear at her wedding and I am very glad that I do not move in royal circles because 2011 is going to be such an expensive year for wedding presents for such grandees.

Why should he get his nose fixed just because he's getting married?
You don't think Zara's pretty then?

sndral said that Mike's brother was getting married in August and then suggested July or September. I assumed that that meant the suggestion was for Mike and Zara to marry then.
