Zara Tindall, the Queen's oldest granddaughter, celebrates her 10th wedding anniversary with husband Mike on Friday.

The couple married in Scotland, at Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh, a break from churches usually associated with royal weddings, such as St George's Chapel in Windsor or St Paul's Cathedral.

Keen athletes and sports lovers, the couple are regularly spotted now at events like Ascot, Epsom and Wimbledon, soaking up the atmosphere.

Zara is an equestrian who initially had hopes of qualifying for Tokyo 2020, but has recently had their third child, a boy called Lucas Philip.

Tindall is a former England rugby player, and now hosts a podcast called The Good, the Bad and the Rugby.

They met in 2003, apparently at the Rugby World Cup and through Zara's cousin - Prince Harry.

Initial denials of their relationship did not last as they were spotted together more and more. 

With no royal titles, the Tindalls have a quieter life and had a less grand wedding too. IBTimes called it a "sports personality" wedding, rather than a typically a royal one. 

Zara did choose royal couture for her gown though, going for Stewart Parvin, one of the Queen's favourite designers.

She wore a Greek tiara which had been given to her mother Princess Anne by Prince Philip's mother, Alice, via the Queen.

Newlyweds William and Kate were at the wedding, having just been married themselves in a huge ceremony in London in April 2011.

Of course, the Queen, Prince Philip, Princess Anne, and Prince Charles and Camilla were also there, as was Zara's father Captain Mark Philips who walked her down the aisle.

Compared to the pomp and ceremony of Prince William's wedding, this was a low-key royal event, reflecting the couple involved.

But they did have the reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse - the Queen's official home in Scotland.

They will probably relish the lifting of restrictions in time to celebrate this year, alongside their three children, Mia, Lena and Lucas.
