And now Mike can come to the wedding
And now that they are engaged, Mike will be accompanying Zara to Prince William's wedding.
Tindall, 32, gave Zara a solitaire diamond ring. "I am delighted that Zara has agreed to marry me. We are both very excited about the next stage of our lives together."
Zara said she was "shocked" by Mike's proposal, but was "very happy to accept."
The date of the wedding has not been announced. Mike proposed last night at their Gloucestershire home. The wedding is expected to take place in the summer or fall of 2011.
Michael James Tindall was born October 18, 1978 at Otley, Leeds, in West Yorkshire. He is the son of Philip Tindall and Linda Shepherd. Philip is a former rugby player for Otley. He now works as a bank official.
Clarence House issued a statement on behalf of the Prince of Wales - Miss Phillip's uncle - the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William and Prince Harry.
It said: "Their royal highnesses are delighted with the news and look forward to conveying their best wishes to the couple."
