(CBS/AP) LONDON - Zara Phillips says her wedding to rugby player Mike Tindall was amazing, but she is disappointed that she and her new husband are too busy to go on their honeymoon.

Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II's granddaughter and a former equestrian world champion, went back to work on Tuesday to launch a range of children's equestrian clothing.

The 30-year-old said the couple has a busy life and has to delay the post-wedding trip.

She told the Associated Press: "We're kind of missing the quiet period where we can catch up and have some sleep."

Her cousin, Prince William, also delayed his honeymoon with the former Kate Middleton, now the Duchess of Cambridge, following their wedding in April.

Phillips, who does not use a royal title, married Tindall on Saturday in a low-key, private ceremony in Edinburgh, Scotland, followed by a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse that reportedly went on into the early hours of the morning.

She said she has decided to keep her maiden name for professional and sponsorship purposes, but will be known as Mrs. Tindall in private.
