After much speculation about the date, Prince William's cousin Zara Phillips and her fiancé, rugby player Mike Tindall, have decided to marry on July 30 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Like William and Kate Middleton, who will wed April 29, Phillips and Tindall will have their post-nuptial reception at a palace – in their case, the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.

A simple statement was issued by the press secretary to Queen Elizabeth, Zara's grandmother, on Wednesday. "Miss Zara Phillips and Mr. Mike Tindall will be married at the Canongate Kirk, Edinburgh, on Saturday, 30th July," it read.

Phillips, 29, the daughter of William's aunt, Princess Anne, is 12th in line to the throne. She and Tindall announced their engagement in December.
