Queen’s grandson splits from wife
– Queen Elizabeth’s oldest grandchild Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn have separated and will divorce, a spokesperson said yesterday, piling more misery on Britain’s most famous family.
The split comes after Phillips’ cousin Prince Harry and his US wife Meghan quit their royal roles last month in search of financial independence, and moved to Canada.
Queen Elizabeth’s second son Prince Andrew stepped back from all royal duties in November following a public outcry over his friendship with US sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Phillips is the son of the monarch’s daughter Princess Anne and her first husband Mark Phillips. He is the eldest of her eight grandchildren. – AFP
