Zara Phillips returns to work, missing honeymoon

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 life 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.
