Royal family cheers on Zara Phillips Olympics equestrian cross country

Zara Phillips, the Queen’s granddaughter, revealed that she has no plans of having a baby yet unlike her cousin’s wife, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. According to the Daily Mail, the young royal does not want to compete with Kate as far as motherhood is concerned.

Zara told reporters that she and her husband, rugby star Mike Tindall, does not plan on having a baby anytime soon. She claims that there is no immediate plan because she feels no pressure in this regard. The couple has been married for one year.

Zara said in her interview that at first people used to ask her when will she tie the knot and now that she is married, people are interested in her maternity plans.

She said, “Before we got married, everyone was like: ‘When are you going to get married?’ Then as soon as we were, it was: ‘When are you having kids?’”

Zara further said that she does not have any plans to start a family with husband Mike Tindall as of yet, adding that only future can tell what will happen. The young royal did not mention a time period.

She went on to say in the interview, “In the future we will see what happens, but we are not, sort of, putting a date down.”

The queen’s granddaughter also clarified reports that claimed that she is in a race with the Duchess of Cambridge to have a baby. She said jokingly, “Kate can win that one.”

Talking to media at the Magic Millions horse carnival on Australia Gold Coast on Tuesday, she got various suggestions regarding presents for Kate’s baby. She also turned down a suggestion regarding getting the baby a horse.

She then replied, “No, no presents, though I was thinking about getting some of the girls together in a syndicate.”

“Maybe next year,” she added.

Meanwhile, Zara and her husband, Mike Tindall, are planning to move to Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Park estate near Minchinhampton. They have sold their 1.2 million pounds marital home. The move seems convenient for her because she already keeps her horses in Gatcombe and also trains her horses over there.

The accomplished horsewoman is in Australia this week as the ambassador of the Magic Millions carnival’s Racing Women initiative.
