The Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips has announced she is getting married to her boyfriend Mike Tindall.

They haven't announced when the big day will be, but it looks like there may be a second Royal wedding in 2011.

Zara has been dating the England Rugby player since they met at the Rugby World Cup in 2003.

Mike Tindall proposed to Zara on Monday evening. Buckingham Palace officials said the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were delighted by the news.

The news comes just a few weeks after it was announced that Zara's cousin Prince William and Kate Middleton will marry in 2011.

Their Royal wedding will take place on 29 April 2011.
