ROYAL BLOOD Inside the life of the late Queen's 'favourite' grandson Peter Phillips

Who is Queen Elizabeth’s ‘favourite’ grandson Peter Phillips?

Peter Phillips, the eldest grandchild of the late Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, has been making headlines for his love life over the years. In April 2024, it was exclusively revealed by The Sun that he had split from his long-term girlfriend.

Born to Princess Anne and her first husband Captain Mark Phillips on November 15, 1977, Peter Phillips did not inherit a royal title at birth as hereditary titles are passed down through the male line, and Captain Phillips does not have a royal title.

It is believed that his parents rejected an offer from the Queen to give him a title so he could lead a normal life.

Considered the late Queen’s “favourite” grandson, Peter and his sister Zara have never carried out royal duties despite being related to the British Royal Family.

Peter’s ex-wife, Autumn Kelly, is a Canadian-born management consultant whom he met at the 2003 Canadian Grand Prix. The couple got married in 2008 and have two daughters together, Savannah and Isla.

After confirming his divorce from Autumn in February 2020, Peter embarked on a new relationship with Lindsay Wallace, but the couple eventually broke up after three years

Peter currently works as the managing director of Sports & Entertainment UK Ltd, a company he co-founded in 2012 with his friend James Erskine.

With a focus on increasing the commercial value for sports and entertainment rights holders in the UK, Peter’s company aims to deliver world-class events to London.

Despite his royal connections, Peter Phillips continues to carve out his own path in the business world.
