RICHARD KAY: Zara Phillips moves back in with her mother

Five months after the thrill of winning a team silver medal in the Olympics, the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips is turning her attention to matters domestic — moving home to mother.

She and her rugby star husband Mike Tindall have sold their white stucco marital home in Cheltenham and are planning to live at Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park estate near Minchinhampton, about 20 miles away.
 

The couple's £1.2 million house has been quietly on the market for some time and has now been purchased, I learn, by Shaun Wills, finance director of clothing company Superdry.


The move makes sense for Zara  because she already stables her horses at Gatcombe and it's where she trains both racehorses and her three-day eventers.
 
She and Tindall bought the detached house, which is on a main road but set back in its own grounds, before their July 2011 wedding.
 
And although some were surprised they had opted for a house in a town with no special security arrangements, the couple liked its proportions and also wanted to lead as ordinary a life as possible.

  ??? I do wonder if there is more going on?
Did Zara not like setting up her own house as a married woman?

What's going on with these new  marriages in the British house?

Interesting that they sold the home already. It's not just a temporary move home, it sounds like Zara and Mike are going to settle in with Mom Princess Anne for awhile.imo

Why buy a maritial home, just to sell it and move back in with mom?

OK I can see that she has stables at her mom's house, but what about setting up a life with your new husband?

How is Mike going to like moving back in with Mom-in-law? Why did Zara and Mike buy this home in the first place if she knew it wasn't a environment where she could train? Training is a big part of her life, so why is she just figuring this part out?

I wonder if Richard Kay knows something more? I only say that because his headline is quite eye-catching(but that is his job, to attract readers, but still, I wonder if there's more going on to this?  :sly:

Sounds like divorce
Who moves home after setting up outside of home.
They have no financial reasons to do it .
I'd expect these two will part ways .

I assume there are some cottages around the estate where Zara and Mike can stay or are they going to slum it with Anne at the main house?  :tehe:

Maybe the previous house didn't work out and they want to move to another one. If that's the case then I hope this is just a temporary setting and are just living with Anne while negotiations are still taking place.

Post by: MOSAIC on January 09, 2013, 10:48:23 am

Zara previously lived in a house on the estate, and not a small one.  The article states that Peter, Autumn and their two daughters are also there.  At one point after their divorce Peter Phillips and his then wife lived in a house on the estate.  It is evidently quite a substantial property to say the least and can house a number of households without impinginh on Anne and Tim.  Sounds like Cheltenham was just too far away, maybe also from his mother and father.

If it had been Peter I would have said that they may have financial problems but Zara? She is in her best moment now.

They chose that house knowing the problems it had so they must have liked it when they bought it why change? They could also have bought another house in that neighbourhood with the money from they get from selling their old home.

I agree with the divorce theory or at least they will separate without doing it official. With selling their home they are already separating their finances.

Serene yes the title is very funny with them mentioning happy homes... more likely unhappy couple. If it wasn't for the NZ incident it wouldn't seem so strange but as it is I doubt they will last long imo.

And it sounds like the estate is more like a smal village then one manorhouse

I agree Snokitty.  When is Zara's next tournament?  Does she receive regular income when there aren't any tournaments?  Mike doesn't make the same money he used to.


Title: Re: RICHARD KAY: Zara Phillips moves back in with her mother
Post by: serene grace on January 09, 2013, 07:31:08 pm
I wonder if they had any staff at the home they sold?
Zara may not have wanted to run her own home, maybe she feels it's easier to live under her mom's roof and let mom's staff handle the tasks of every day running of a home.

To purchase a home and then sell it so quickly and move back in with her mom reminds me of Kate wanting to go home all the time.

I like Zara's personality,  but this just seems a bit of a flakey thing for her to do ,imo because a home purchase takes thought, it's not something most people go into without weighing all the options and where a person buys a home takes a lot of consideration, so I wonder how much thought, Zara gave before she made the home purchase, since she ended up selling it so quickly.

Post by: Alexandrine on January 09, 2013, 08:06:21 pm
Zara is the image of a couple of products and I think she has her own line of sport clothes.

She's been around Australia/NZ twice promoting products in a very short time.

It's not like Peter who is probably in a worse financial state with him being fired and now trying to be an agent.



Title: Re: RICHARD KAY: Zara Phillips moves back in with her mother

Maybe they're moving back to the cottage (on Gatcombe estate) they lived in when they were still dating

Zara and Gloucester and England ace Mike, 31, who met in 2003, were living in a cottage on mother Princess Anne's Gatcombe estate but set up home together last April.

Also in the same article:
Quote
The three-storey Georgian house has a large country kitchen and garden - but no stables for Zara's 14 horses.

Maybe buying a house with stables is a bit redundant as her horses are getting free lodging at Anne's house, but if that's the case then why leave in the first place. Or, if they had problems because of the stabling shouldn't they have just chosen a house with stables instead?  :dontknow:

Quote
Zara and her husband, rugby player Mike Tindall, sold their £1.2million Cheltenham townhouse last month to move back to Princess Anne’s estate 20 miles away in Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire.

It has been suggested the couple may move into Aston Farm, next to Anne’s home on the estate, where her former husband Mark Phillips had been living with his second wife Sandy before they announced their divorce last May.

An insider said: “Mike and Zara have outgrown the Bothy, where they used to live on the estate before they moved to Cheltenham. Aston Farm could make the perfect family home for them once Mark and Sandy finalise their divorce.”

I'm getting sick and tired of people saying how 'tough' and down to earth Zara is, just because her mother Princess Anne is mistakenly considered tough and unpretentious despite the fact that Anne hardly lives in any modest way herself in regards to her lifestyle. Zara wouldn't be as poshy famous as she is if in fact she had to make her way up from the bottom in the world of polo via a job starting out mucking the stables and working to make her own living. It's easy when Zara has had the Queen's collection of thoroughbreds and her mother's specialized trainers to coach her all the time, plus the leisure to spend endless hours training.

Quote

You would have to tell me.

Kate can't cope on her own, Zara apparently can't cope living an independent married life (while having no problem insulting her husband's intelligence) despite supposedly being so 'tough' as an Olympic rider. Go figure, maybe Anne failed in some area to raise her daughter properly.

I know! It's annoying, some of these people get married and want to run back home like University students and bunk back up with their mommie's, so all needs will be attended to.

I don't think they want to take on the responsibility of running their own households.

It's telling.
I think they want to be in perpetual state of boyfriend -girlfriend mode but with a marriage license. They want mommy and daddy to handle the day to day operations of running a household.

Which apparently didn't 'normalize' them at all; that is, if Princess Anne knew what real normalcy was. After all, Princess Anne's attitude towards people would have gotten her fired or she would have failed to pass a simple job interview.

To me it sounds like people are just running from the world and once they realize that they've taken on yet another adult responsibility, they freak out. I never understand the idea of men (to be fair) and women who want to be taken care of by their spouses. As if making a living is something 'bad' and 'dirty.'

This is also happening in the US with many new marriages, I have seen several friends marry and within one or two years, they move back home with their mother's(&father's) then I notice they start clubbing and doing the things they did "before marriage", such as more vacations-together, shopping more, etc.... it's like they are retreating to pre-married life, except now they have moved back into mom and dad's, so they have no big overhead of payments(not something the royals would worry about) but they also have a "instant-ready-made homelife again through their parents"( which is more what I believe Kate and Zara may be up to.)

It does sound to me like the RF is grouping together, closing ranks, and bracing themselves for a blast.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were a divorce in the making behind closed scenes; I wouldn't blame Mike for wanting to leave since he's rarely treated well in the press and I am dead sure that Anne might look down on him and Zara sounds like a spoiled brat who maybe reminds him of supposed inferiority. Unlike Zara he didn't have the Queen's thoroughbreds to practice on all the time and had to work hard to truly dedicate himself to the sport. In frankness, if he wants out he should get out now and end up leaving while he can; there are no kids and it's not like this marriage has helped him in any area.

They are moving back on the estate and not in the same house so it is a little different than moving back home.

Either way, it's not living on their own land and own terms and paying the way like real ordinary people do. It's simply that these two are acclaimed for vaunted normalcy and don't mind running home to Mommy's land and comfort to avoid paying bills and rent/taxes like everyone else. Sounds like normalcy got a little too difficult so they've decided to suspend their 'normal' (pun intended) activities until things are better.

Peter and Autumn live in a home on Anne's estate and no one seems to think it means they are breaking up or divorcing.

If I owned a large estate like that with multiple homes I would give one to each of my children.


Title: Re: RICHARD KAY: Zara Phillips moves back in with her mother
Post by: Spice on February 01, 2013, 04:09:13 am
I'm sorry but I don't see this as anything like the drama some people are making it out to be. 

It's like Snokitty said, Gatcombe is a large estate with several houses on it.  One of the larger houses was recently vacated when the Mark/Sandy Phillips marriage ended.  Peter and Autumn already live in a house on the estate, and Zara and Mike are moving into another one.  Their previous cottage was too small, and their townhouse is too far away from the horses.

Money is not an issue for Zara, or Peter.  They are just country people who like having country houses surrounded by their dogs and horses.  The Queen would live this way full time if she felt she could.

If it was only that Zara and husband moving to the new house there wouldn't be any speculation. But they bought the house they are now leaving thinking it was appropriate for them, the house hasn't change so they have. After all the drama due to the kissgate and then the trips Zara is doing, I really wonder.

I think it might be because her Dad moved out of the house he was occupying and it is bigger. So they didn't need the other house anymore.

What I don't understand is why two people need such a large house.

The original reason was the cottage they were staying in was to small. I don't know but since she is so into horses it seems she would want to be near them. Maybe the drive back and forth was getting tiresome. They also might have financial problems because it costs a lot to live those lifestyles.

Yes Alexandrine and Yes Snokitty - I suspect M&Z don't bring in that much in real terms - and perhaps they live beyond their means. There was the recent story of Mike bidding £12k for a racehorse in an auction.

Do rugby players of his type earn that sort of money that £12k is like loose change?



Title: Re: RICHARD KAY: Zara Phillips moves back in with her mother
Post by: Spice on February 01, 2013, 09:16:01 pm
Good racehorses cost anything from 12k to 100k.

Both of Anne's children will have large trust funds I am sure.  All the grandchildren got money from QEQM's estate, plus there must have been money from the Queen over the years... Gatcombe was a wedding gift in 1973... it's a thriving agricultural business that has been in the family for 40 years.  The capital that gets built up over such a long time is huge.

Peter is into elite sports management, I am sure he is doing quite well for himself, and he would have earned a lot in his finance job too.  Zara has several sponsorships and appearance fees.  Mike will be raking it in - I don;t know what sort of money England pays its rugby players but in NZ most of them are millionaires.

Anne would never let her kids get into money trouble... all of HM's children except for Charles get loads of money from her.

As for the Z&M townhouse - people change their minds all the time.  Maybe they didn't like the neighbours.  Most likely they got sick of travelling to the horses all the time.  Prior to the Olympics, that would have been Zara's top priority.  Once it was over and all the post-olympic appearances were finished, her mind was probably freer to think of how to arrange her lifestyle.

For filthy rich people like the royals, large houses for one or two people are no issue.  They like to have reception rooms for parties or charity events, with plenty of distance between those areas and their bedrooms.  If money was no issue, by the time you've designed a house to have all the luxury features like an indoor pool or whatever, it's quite a large building.

I see Zara in a totally different category to Waity.  Zara has been doing proper charity work since her early 20s.  She could  have focussed 100% on her sporting career (most olympians do).  She has never said or done anything to embarrass HM.  Not in the league of what WK and PW regularly do.

There's a really interesting interview with Peter and Zara here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMHPnRsyePw

I can't imagine PW, WK or even PH talking about royal life like these two did in this interview.

Rugby players really don't earn that much here - the footballers are the ones rolling in cash. Mind you they top up on internationals etc and sponsorships.

Quote
.The England EPS deal gives the clubs £150k for every EPS squad member at that club. This is often the basic salary these EPS players will get from their clubs, but some clubs choose to give a bit more or less depending on the player. The salary cap in the Aviva Premiership is around £4.2million, so if you think of a squad size of about 42 (for sake of easy numbers) the average wage would be £100k a year, plus any kit deals or endorsements which are separate. Young players will earn less than that average, more experienced guys will be on more, especially if they have moved around a bit. There is a new rule regarding the salary cap in the AP, whereby 1 player can be designated the 'marque' player and earn up to around £300k outside of the cap. This will usually be a foreign international star like Castro at Leicester, Evans at
Quote
Quins or Cowan at Gloucester.
I don't know details about the Welsh players but I guess it will be quite similar to this. I'd guess a Wales international will earn into six figures (I think Cuthbert recently signed a new £100k deal with the Blues), and the average Rabo journeyman might get somewhere 40k-80k depending on their age.

http://www.606v2.com/t29960-how-much-do-pro-rugby-players-earn

 Like you I have no doubts that the Phillips children enjoy their trust fund from the late QM and there will be some family funding along the way but I also suspect that as this money has been diluted down between the various children and grandchildren it may not be vast amounts everyone envisages although we don't know for sure as the royal wills are not open to the public.

However various analysts have estimated William and Harry received £2 million each in trust which may be more than the rest of the various grandchildren. That will be invested and paid out as a regular income and I have no idea what sort of regular income but I suspect one that is easy to spend if you live a farly high life.

Peter Phillips' business is very much a start up and so far he's signed his sister, his brother-in-law, his father and Shane Warne in what is an extremely tough business against the giants like IMG and sponsorship money is getting very difficult. So whilst it's got potential it's early days.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2173663/KATIE-NICHOLL-Zara-Phillips-gives-brother-s-firm-Royal-seal-approvall.html

So I still suspect that the chance to realise some capital from a property sale and move onto the family estate at a (probably) peppercorn rent proved attractive to both siblings - and who could blame them for that?


Title: Re: RICHARD KAY: Zara Phillips moves back in with her mother
Post by: Spice on February 02, 2013, 10:45:12 am
I wonder if maybe the QM inheritances for PW and PH were lower than the other grandkids' inheritances, by virtue of their greater access to money from Charles and Diana.  Still, even £2 million would go a long, long, way, esp. when Zara and Mike have other income sources as well.

No man is an island. Regardless of our situation in life, we all live in a hostile world, and it is good to be surrounded by family and friends.

There are plenty of stories in the media about families and friends all living on the same street etc

Here in the spot I live in is such an example - the parents moved here when their original home was taken over to make way for part of a nearby  airport - they had four sons - one son moved away - two unmarried sons inherited the family home and lived there, after the premature death of one of these brothers, the other brother, who has remained single, has continued to live in this house.

The eldest son married and had five daughters and one son - all of whom were live here. The widow of the eldest son continues to live here. Her divorced daughter lives with her. Another daughter and her husband live in the next road, While the only son and his wife and their five children all live in another house a stone's throw away.

This family also own other small houses here which they let out and which their children will eventually live in - they are not mega-rich but hard working as florists, scrap merchants etc

My immediate neighbours took in their daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons when the son-in-law left the army and they were homeless.

It happens all the time.

There is no comparison between Zara and Waity - Zara is an achiever and a free spirit - Mike too is an achiever,

Unlike Carole, Princess Anne does NOT live through her children - she has her own life and own friends!!!

Nor is Anne trying to create an alternative court!!!

Waity's situation vis a vis Carole is sick co-dependency with the underlining motive of greed and hunger for status.

Zara and Peter living at Gatcombe makes sense as eventually they will inherit the place
