Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips
Zara Phillips is to move back in with her mother.
The 31-year-old royal - Queen Elizabeth's eldest granddaughter - and her husband Mike Tindall have sold their marital home in Cheltenham, West England, and are planning to live at Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park estate near Minchinhampton, about 20 miles away.
According to the Daily Mail newspaper, the couple's Â£1.2â??million house has been on the market for some time and has now been purchased, by Shaun Wills, finance director of clothing company Superdry.
Fortunately for the couple, Olympic silver medal winner Zara has always kept the home she previously lived in on her mother's estate so the couple will move back to that.
And they certainly won't be lonely while living there, because as well as Anne and her husband Timothy Laurence, Zara's brother Peter also lives on the estate with his wife and two daughters.
However, Zara - who married rugby ace Mike in July 2011 - insists she has no intention of starting a family in the near future so the estate won't be too overcrowded.
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?â??'
'In the future we'll see what happens, but we're not, sort of, putting a date down.'
