Nice pics, Ice. I've always thought Zara was quite attractive. I think she looks alot like her Gloucester cousins. Those narrow-heeled boots look a bit off for wandering around on a field, tho. As for her house plans, she's probably better off buying something w/out all the fuss. I wonder when (and if) there will be an engagement announcement.

That is too bad about the house. Like the ponytail. Then again, this Royal would look terrific in a burlap bag!

Zara really is a stunning woman. Not "pretty", not "beautiful", but attractive. She has that whole "charisma" thing going on. When she enters a room people stare and that is often before realising that she is who she is.

The way she carries herself, curtesy of her royal upbringing and her Dressage training, exudes confidence and her smile is "inviting" rather than "standoffish". A 4th (modern generation) classy lady. Hard to beat those odds!

Indeed, Mike's nose looks worse than I remembered it
And the result of the trial and it's reasons are quite
embarrassing, and not only because he's a partner of a
member of a royal family..

Here's a picture gallery of him leaving the court today:

I think he deserved a jail sentence considering the amount of alcohol in his system and that this was his second offence.

Drunk drivers make me sick as they are not only puting their own life at risk but also those of sober law abiding citizens many of whom are travelling with children in their cars. Perhaps Mike Taindall thought he could get away with it because he is going out with a Royal.

Zara could take my advice and use this as an excuse to lose him. I doubt HM will assist in the search.

ROYAL Bank of Scotland (RBS), bailed out with billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money, hired top sports stars on “reckless” contracts to entertain clients as part of a £200m sponsorship binge

‘Reckless’ RBS blew £200m on top sports stars under Sir Fred Goodwin - Times Online

I wonder where this will leave Zara with regard to her promotion deal?

He is much better looking than the last boyfriend she had. By far so beauty is in the eye of the beholder as far as she is concerned but this boyfriend is big and muscular, the other looked puny.

richard johnson doesn't look bad but is a different type of man, a jockey who has to watch his weight and not a rugby player who makes sure he gets 3.000 calories or so per day

Thanks for this information, Skydragon. Even if her spokesperson mentioned that noone approached Zara so far for a renegotiation. I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to offer this by herself rather than wait until public pressure forces her. Course she might loose some money, but on the other handside she might be perceived even more than today as a person of outstanding integrity. What do you think about such a voluntary move of Zara?

It is difficult for her, if she says to them, I won't hold you to your contract and no more money passes hands, she may well be seen by some, as deserting a sinking ship.

If they ask her to release them from the contract and she agrees and they make it public that it was at their request to save the taxpayer money, then she will be seen as Miss wonderful.

Good point, Skydragon. Time will tell what happens. But it is interesting to note that so far there has been no Zara-bashing. She seems to have an excellent reputation which cannot be hurt easily. Good for her!
