Zara Phillips returns to work, missing honeymoon

August 2, 2011 - 12:44 PM

LONDON (AP) — Newlywed royal Zara Phillips says her wedding to rugby player Mike Tindall was amazing, but she is disappointed the couple are too busy to take a honeymoon.

Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter and a former equestrian world champion, went back to work Tuesday to launch a range of children's equestrian clothing.

The 30-year-old said the couple has a busy live and has to delay the honeymoon.

She said: "We're kind of missing the quiet period where we can catch up and have some sleep."

Phillips, who does not use a royal title, wed Tindall Saturday in a low-key, private ceremony in Edinburgh.

She said she has decided to keep her maiden name for professional and sponsorship purposes, but will be known as Mrs. Tindall in private.
