LONDON (AFP) - Queen Elizabeth II's eldest grand-daughter Zara Phillips is to wed Mike Tindall, the England rugby union captain, in Edinburgh on July 30, Buckingham Palace said Wednesday. The second British royal wedding of the year will come almost exactly three months after Phillips's cousin Prince William, the second in line to the throne, marries Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in London on April 29. "Miss Zara Phillips and Mr Mike Tindall will be married at the Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh, on Saturday, 30th July," a brief statement said. "The couple will hold a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse following the ceremony." Holyroodhouse is the sovereign's official residence in Scotland and lies within the parish of the Church of Scotland's Canongate Kirk. Phillips, 29, the daughter of the queen's only daughter Princess Anne, is an eventing world champion and 13th in line to the throne. Tindall, 32, played in England's 2003 World Cup-winning team and is currently skippering their Six Nations campaign. The couple met as they celebrated England winning the World Cup, but they have largely kept their relationship out of the spotlight. Tindall proposed on December 20 last year. The wedding will be on a much more intimate scale than William's, which will be attended by foreign royalty, beamed around the world and draw huge crowds to London. Canongate Kirk's website tells couples tying the knot of the costs involved. The marriage certificate fee is 69 ($112, 80 euros), while the other fees are 75 for the organist, 25 for the church officer and a donation of not less than 200 to the church - preferably all in one cheque. Reports say Princess Anne has asked Tindall to have an operation to get his nose straightened before the wedding. The Gloucester captain's nose has been broken repeatedly throughout his rugby career. Tindall's best man will be Biarritz back Iain Balshaw, also part of England's World Cup-winning squad. Phillips has followed in her mother's footsteps in becoming an equestrian champion - Anne won gold at the 1971 European eventing championship - and has carved out her own life away from palace pressures. Anne decided her two children would not bear royal titles and they do not carry out royal duties. The British press dubbed feisty Phillips a "royal rebel" after she had her tongue pierced as a teenager.
