I am baffled as to why Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Phillips would announce her engagement less than a month after her cousin Prince William announces his very high profile nuptials!
Zara’s not going to get any attention with her cousin’s giant wedding taking up all the spotlight.
According to the story they already have a house together. Why would he ask her now? Why compete?
She could have a perfectly lovely royal wedding later. Why propose/announce it now?
New York magazine’s fashion section is already comparing Zara’s and Kate’s engagement rings and engagement photos. Why beg the comparison?
What do you think of Zara getting engaged and announcing so close to her cousin’s wedding announcement?
Have you ever had a sibling or cousin step on your wedding announcement or birth announcement? How did you handle?
