She attended local schools until she went to Gordonstoun, in Scotland. I think she was 13 when she went there.

More evidence that you can bet on practically anything:

"Bookmaker Will- iam Hill is offering odds on World Cup and Bath Rugby hero Mike Tindall marrying Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips, this year. The Bath Rugby star has previously dismissed reports that he was dating the 22-year-old royal as nonsense.

He still insists he is the only member of the England rugby team who is without a partner and that he and Ms Phillips are just good friends.

But Ladbrokes is offering odds of 50/1 that the pair will tie the knot - and this year.

Rumours of romance began after 25-year-old Mike Tindall attended the same North Cotswold Hunt ball as Ms Phillips.

The pair sat at the same table and were said to have got on like a house on fire and to have exchanged telephone numbers.

They first met when she travelled to Sydney to watch the England team in action last month.

Mr Tindall told one national newspaper: "I met Zara in Sydney and we had a great time, but there is definitely no relationship."

The rugby powerhouse has scarcely been out of the newspapers since bringing home the Webb-Ellis Cup with Bath team mates Mike Catt, Iain Balshaw, Danny Grewcock and Bath-based England coach Andy Robinson.

He sustained a leg injury during Bath's 25-14 Zurich Premiership victory over Saracens and faces a minimum three-month lay-off and possible ankle reconstruction.

This rules him out of England's entire 2004 Six Nations campaign.

The rugby lads have also been offered the freedom of both Bath and London and yesterday featured in the New Year's Honours list.

The freedom of Bath has only ever been awarded to 12 people, and the last time was in 1965 when Bath was under city council control.

Yehudi Menuhin was last given the honour in recognition of his outstanding contribution to music.

The bookmaker is also offering punters odds that Robbie Williams will marry, Jamie Oliver will turn vegetarian, Sven Goran Erikkson will cease to be England manager and Jonny Wilkinson will quit rugby for American Football.

Punters can also bet that Zara Phillips will win a Gold Medal at the 2004 Olympics at odds of 25/1, and on Tony Blair ceasing to be Prime Minister by the end of the year at odds of 6/1."

Oh my gosh! This is totally ridiculous and outrageous! Now people are placing bets on whom royals will be engaged to and when?! And I thought that betting on who would win Survivor/American Idol/Big Brother, etc. was bad!

What's next? What colour Haakon and Mette-Marit will paint the bathroom of their new home?!

Are there not enough horse races going on that this is what bookies are filling their time with?

I found this recently but I was surprised that I didn't see it around here. How true it is, one can't say. It's from the beginning of December:

0:30 - 08 December 2003

Gold Cup winning jockey Richard Johnson has ended his three-year
relationship with Princess Anne's daughter, Zara Phillips.

Friends of 22-year-old Zara say she is devastated. She has moved out
of his £400,000 home in Toddington, near Winchcombe and returned to
her mother's home, Gatcombe Park, near Minchinhampton. Richard, 26,
one of Britain's leading jump jockeys, declined to comment today.

After meeting Richard during the summer of 1999, the Princess
Royal's daughter has split up with him and got back together several
times before.

There was talk of an engagement. Sources close to the couple say
that this time, it really is the end.

Zara moved out in July 2002 after he grew close to redhead Louise
O'Neil, daughter of Temple Guiting trainer Jonjo O'Neill.

Rumours of a rekindled romance were fuelled at Cheltenham's National
Hunt Festival in March 2003 when the couple shared a kiss after
Richard romped home to win the Champion Hurdle.

They rode out together most mornings at Adlestrop where Zara worked
as a horsewoman.

In May Zara Phillips celebrated her 22nd birthday with her then ex-
boyfriend Richard by her side.

She spent the night at London's Roof Garden Restaurant and left the
Kensington night spot carrying a red rose, which Richard had given

In the summer, Zara oversaw £100,000 of renovations to Richard's

It included a new wing with a bedroom, bathroom and games room and a
new paddock and stables.

Since then Zara, who is the 11th in line to the throne, has been
sharing a cottage in Snowshill with best friend Dolly Maude,
although she spent most nights at Richard's house.

She has now moved her belongings and her horses back to her mother's

A close friend said Zara wanted to make a clean break and
concentrate on pursuing a place in the British Olympic showjumping

Richard is one of Britain's top performing jockeys. He is joint top
of the jump jockeys championships with Tony McCoy and has won most
of the most important races including the Gold Cup.

On Saturday he won a race at Sandown, his 120th win of the season.
This weekend he rides at Cheltenham's Tripleprint Gold Cup.

Last year he published his autobiography, Out of the Shadows,
written in collaboration with Alan Lee, racing correspondent of The

In it he said he 'had no idea what love's like' because he had never
been in love.

2 JANUARY 2004
The Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips rang in the first day of 2004 indulging in one of her favourite pastimes – equestrian pursuits.

However, the skilled horsewoman was on the sidelines this time round, as she cheered on her favourites at the Cheltenham racecourse.

And it seemed to be a happy new year for the 22-year-old royal, who showed off her smile throughout the event. Fashionable Zara was keeping stylishly warm, playfully hiding her million-watt grin behind a trendy striped scarf which she had wrapped snugly around her neck.
Have you ever wished on a star? It's a magic everyone should experience.

Be a good person.

How is Zara getting along with her mother and step-father now that she is back home? I thought I had heard her relationship with Anne wasn't that great, have things improved since she split from Richard?

I've always read that she has a good relationship with both of her parents, though Anne may have had some reservations about some of Zara's behavior. I read that she has a warm, if not necessarily close, relationship with her stepfather.

12,000-mile dash to party
By Suzanne Kerins

Zara Phillips is enjoying a secret romance with New Zealand rugby
star Caleb Ralph.

They have been an item since he made a 12,000-mile trip so they
could celebrate New Year's Eve together.

The couple, who met when England won the World Cup in Sydney,
partied the night away at a private bash at Princess Anne's Gatcombe
Park Estate in Gloucestershire.

And party-loving horse rider Zara, 22, told her pals: "Caleb and I
are having lots of fun. He's a very special man."

The New Year celebration was held at the home of Zara's father,
Captain Mark Phillips, and other guests included her brother Peter.
All Black winger Ralph, 26, cancelled plans to attend a friend's
wedding in New Zealand and flew over specially to be with the
Queen's granddaughter.

One observer said:"Zara seemed very happy and relaxed with Caleb.
He's a charmer and not as rampant with the girls as some rugby
players are.

"He and Zara were inseparable all night. They sang, drank and danced
the night away.

"Caleb was having a brilliant time and everyone, including Zara, was
trying to keep up with him when they started playing drinking games.
"She did a very good job but there was no contest. Caleb is a very
big man and can hold his liquor."

The player, who weighs 15st and is 6ft 2in, has a six-year-old
daughter in New Zealand from a previous relationship but does not
have a current girlfriend.

The friend added: "Zara isn't rushing into anything serious with
Caleb. She knows a relationship isn't going to be easy as he lives
so far away and also has a young daughter, who he dotes on. But it
was pretty obvious to everyone at the party that she's totally
smitten with him. Caleb was the life and soul of the party."

The pair were out together the next day at Cheltenham racecourse,
but went to great lengths to keep their relationship secret. Wrapped
up in a scarf, Zara cheered on her former jockey boyfriend Richard
Johnson while Caleb kept a low-profile, watching from another
vantage point.

An insider said: "No one noticed that Caleb was there. Zara was
determined to keep it that way. She doesn't want the whole world
knowing about it."

Caleb, who returned home to New Zealand on Monday, isn't talking
about the romance.

His mother, Mina, told the Sunday Mirror: "Caleb doesn't want to say
anything about Zara. All he told me was that he had a very good

When Zara and Caleb met in Sydney, they immediately hit it off and
set tongues wagging when they spent three days together sightseeing.
Unlike Zara, Caleb leads a modest existence. He lives with his
brother Jared in a £60,000 bungalow in Christchurch, while Zara
lives with her mother the Princess Royal on her Gatcombe estate in

Zara has had a topsy-turvy lovelife and split from long-term
boyfriend Johnson, 26, last year. She moved out of his home in
Toddington, Glos, over rumours linking him to Louise O'Neill -
daughter of racing legend Jonjo.

In recent months, Zara has been linked with Mike Tindall, the 15-
stone centre in the victorious England rugby team.

She has also spent lots of time with handsome polo player Mark
Tomlinson, son of Beaufort Club secretary Claire Tomlinson.

Tomlinson is a close pal of Prince Harry and William. An insider
said: "Zara likes her rugby players too - Caleb in particular.""

love intrest has a six year old daughter! She certainly has earned her
title of "royal rebel."

All Black admits royal romance
15 January 2004

All Blacks winger Caleb Ralph has confessed: he spent Christmas and New Year with the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips.

The usually reticent rugby player yesterday called a press conference to answer questions on the royal romance making headlines.

Looking nervous, Ralph reluctantly admitted he spent the holiday period with Zara Phillips, 22, daughter of Princess Anne.

"I have been in England and I did see her."

Ralph was advised to front up about the relationship on his return from a Canterbury Crusaders training camp in Hanmer Springs.

The winger hopped off the team bus carrying a favourite pillow and avoiding the gaze of the gathered media.

Ralph said reports of Ms Phillips' rumoured visit to New Zealand were "news" to him.

He told reporters he was unsure if Ms Phillips would stay with him if she arrived in New Zealand.

"I don't know ... I'd just have to wait and see."

Asked what the nature of his relationship with Ms Phillips was, Ralph said: "I don't want to discuss that. I really think that is private, and it's my private life."

The two met during the Rugby World Cup in Australia when Ralph, 26, spent three days with Ms Phillips after the All Blacks' last cup match against France.

According to British tabloid newspaper the Sunday Mirror, the pair spent Christmas together and had New Year at the home of Ms Phillips' father, Captain Mark Phillips.

Friends of Ms Phillips said the pair had a "great time. They sang, drank and danced the night away".

They went on to spent New Year's Day at Cheltenham Racecourse but went to great lengths to keep their relationship secret.

Ralph said his friendship with Ms Phillips had brought unwanted attention from British media. He was determined to ignore it and focus on Super 12 training.

"I just want to get on with training for the year. (The media interest) is just a hassle."

Zara flying in for royal rendezvous
14 January 2004

Zara Phillips is winging her way to Christchurch to visit All Blacks rugby player and current flame Caleb Ralph.

A relative of Ralph, who did not wish to be named, told The Press yesterday that Phillips was "on her way" to New Zealand.

The two met during the Rugby World Cup when Ralph, 26, spent three days with the 22-year-old granddaughter of the Queen after the All Blacks' last cup match against France.

"He's pretty into her ... she's on her way out here," the relative said.
