Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall have put the "mystery blonde" drama behind them - but the British press still won't let it go.

More images have appeared of English rugby star Tindall with a blonde claimed to be the same woman he was seen cavorting with on CCTV footage from a Queenstown bar.

Britain's The Sun published the photos, showing Tindall chatting to a blonde woman wearing a Viking helmet at the same bar.

In another shot, Tindall is wearing the helmet and standing beside a dwarf and a banner saying "down with panties".

Still more pictures show the player laughing and joking with the dwarf during the "Mad Midget Weekender" before picking him up and holding him upside down.

But the images don't look likely to impact on the newly-married couple.

Since arriving in New Zealand last week, the Queen's granddaughter appeared happily in public with Tindall, lunching at cafes in Dunedin.

Phillips also attended the English rugby match against Romania at the weekend.

Phillips' presence in Dunedin brought a paparazzi pack to the city, sparking outrage from her Kiwi songstress friend Bex Murray for harassing the royal.

It is unknown whether Phillips will appear at England's game against Scotland in Auckland this weekend.
