Speculation is mounting that Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall will marry in Scotland following sightings of the Royal couple at an Edinburgh kirk.

The Queen's granddaughter was seen earlier at the Canongate Kirk on the Royal Mile, the venue they are said to be considering for their wedding.

Postings appeared on Facebook and Twitter after the couple were spotted in the church grounds at 0830 GMT.

They were seen with the minister before heading to Holyrood Palace.

There has been no official announcement on the date and venue for the wedding.

But Josh McGuire, 34, a hairdresser who lives on the Royal Mile, said: "I was taking my dog for a walk in the Canongate Kirk when I saw Zara and her boyfriend with the minister at 0830 GMT.

"I said 'Good morning Zara, I'm a hairdresser and only live two doors along from your gran so if you need a blow-dry on your big day I can do it.'

"She laughed. She was wearing a little jacket and a cap."
