"He wouldn't care if she was a checkout girl"

Mike Tindall's mum reveals the extent of her son's love for Royal Zara Phillips.

Proud Linda Tindall described Princess Anne's daughter Zara, 13th in line to the throne, as 'a lovely girl' and 'perfect' for her boy.

With the couple's long-awaited wedding just around the corner, Linda said: "He has a lovely girl, Zara is perfect for Mike. When we met her we noticed she is just so nice and ordinary."

"Many-a-time Mike has said if she worked at Tesco at the checkout it would not matter, it's about her and the sort of person she is."

The couple have been dating each other for seven years and now preparations are being finalised before the big day.
