PremierLeague-News.Com - Zara Tindall's 'secret' half sister announced her engagement on Friday
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The country has another royal wedding to look forward to after a recent proposal. Zara Tindall’s ‘secret’ half sister Stephanie Philips revealed she’s engaged to long term boyfriend William Hosier on Friday by sharing the happy news on Instagram. The 23-year-old is the daughter of Princess Anne’s first husband Captain Mark Philips and his Hawaiian-born second wife Sandy Pflueger. And despite being an extended member of the Royal Family, it’s likely the wedding will be a notable occasion with senior royals - including the Queen - expected to be in attendance. Stephanie Philips was brought up on Gatcombe Estate in Gloucestershire, close to half-sister Zara Philips, and is understood to also be close to Princess Anne. As Gloucestershire Live reports, recent pictures suggest there is no bad blood between Captain Philips - Stephanie’s father - Princess Anne and her second husband Sir Timothy Laurence, so it’s likely they will also make an appearance at the wedding. If you’ve tuned into royal weddings in the past, such as Prince William and Kate Middleton’s in 2011, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s in 2018, then you’ll know there is strict protocol when it comes to tying the knot. Although Stephanie is not a senior royal it’s likely some traditions will apply to her big day, including royal wedding etiquette, menus, attire, and even choice of flowers. A sprig of myrtle It is tradition for the bride to carry myrtle - known as the herb of love - in her wedding bouquet. It’s a tradition which dates back to 1840, when Queen Victoria married Prince Albert. After the wedding, Victoria planted a myrtle shrub in her garden at the Osborne House on the Isle of Wight. Every British royal bride since has carried a bouquet containing a sprig plucked from the same shrub. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, pictured on their wedding day on April 29 2011 (Image: PA) Kate carried a small, shield-shaped wired bouquet designed by Shane Connolly of said myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, Sweet William, and hyacinth. In an act of love to honor the armed forces, Kate left her bouquet in Westminster Abbey at the grave of the Unknown Warrior, a tradition begun by the late Queen Mum. The wedding band Beginning with the wedding of the Queen's late mother in 1923, all of the royal women's wedding bands have contained precious Welsh gold from the same nugget mined in Dolgellau, North Wales. While the traditional nugget is almost depleted, the Queen has since been presented with another large nugget for subsequent wedding bands, including that of Sarah, Duchess of York, Kate, and Meghan Markle.

The guest list At an event as exclusive as a royal wedding, the guest list is everything. Fellow royals, church officials and celebrities dot the list, along with the couple's own friends and family. The Royal Family sits on the right side of the church, unless, as is the case of Stephanie Philips, the groom is not royal, in which case they sit on the left. The Wedding Cake Fruitcake has been the wedding confection of choice for the British royal family for some time now. Everyone from Victoria and Albert to Charles and Diana to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson to Will and Kate have served it at their nuptials. “A fruitcake was originally a symbol of wealth and prosperity because of its precious ingredients such as dried fruits, alcohol and spices,” London pastry chef Chris Dodd told Vogue. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, however, went in a different direction, choosing to serve lemon elderflower cake with buttercream frosting at their wedding. Official portraits Tradition dictates that the bride and groom should pose for an official portrait on the big day along with their immediate family and members of the bridal party. According to royal.uk, the first photographed royals were King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra.
