Queen Elizabeth’s Grandson Peter Phillips & Wife Autumn Announce Split

Queen Elizabeth’s Grandson Peter Phillips & Wife Autumn Announce Split”

"Peter Phillips has always been a favourite of hers and Prince Philip and she will be crestfallen by this, especially on top of all the other bad news". He was photographed with golf instructor Andrea McGann and appeared to be in good spirits.

Queen Elizabeth II's eldest grandson, Peter Phillips, and his wife of 12 years, Autumn Phillips, have announced their plans to divorce.

The couple married in 2008 after five years of dating and have had two daughters, Savannah and Isla. Their daughters are nine-year-old Savannah and seven-year-old Isla.

The pair met at the 2003 Montreal Grand Prix and married at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in 2008.

There has been speculation that Autumn may want to return to her home country of Canada in a move inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, although the statement released on their behalf did not address this.

She wrote: "A reminder Peter Phillips may be the son of a Princess, but he's not royal, his marriage has nothing to do with monarchy, he carries out no royal duties, no £ from the Sovereign Grant".

"After informing HM The Queen and members of both families past year, Peter and Autumn jointly agreed to separate", read the official statement.

Meanwhile they added that the royal family had been aware things "hadn't been going well" since the autumn.

The Queen is also said to be fond of Autumn, who made a rare public appearance alongside her at the annual Highland Games Gathering in Braemar, Aberdeenshire, in September.

'This was the best course of action for their two children and ongoing friendship, ' he said.

A source told The Sun: "Peter is absolutely devastated by this and just didn't see it coming".

"He thought that he was happily married and that they were a flawless family with two lovely daughters", Phillips' friend revealed. Perhaps she thought if that can happen then I can leave as well?

Peter and Autumn share two daughters together.

What caused the marriage split is not known but no one else is said to be involved.

"It just seems they have grown apart but it's come as a bolt out of the blue for Peter and he's very upset", a friend said.

Queen Elizabeth's third child, Prince Andrew, has been embroiled in scandal over his friendship with the late convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
