Peter Phillips & Autumn Phillips separated, she left him & might go back to Canada?

Style for Stroke Foundation: The Fall Ball

The Queen’s grandson has separated from his wife! No, not that grandson. Not that other grandson either. No, it’s Peter Phillips, of the tacky-ass Chinese milk advertisements. Peter Philips is Princess Anne’s older child, the Queen’s first grandchild, and reportedly quite close to his grandmother the Queen. The Queen is said to be fond of Autumn Phillips, Peter’s Canadian wife. They have two daughters, Savannah and Isla. And… it sounds like Autumn just left Peter. Oh, wow – I wonder where the advance reporting/gossip was on this?

The Queen’s favourite grandson Peter Phillips is to separate from his wife Autumn, The Sun can reveal. Her Majesty is believed to be “upset” after Autumn, 41, told Princess Anne’s son, 42, she wants to split after 12 years of marriage. A pal said: “He is devastated.”

It comes amid fears that the mum of two wants to follow Harry and Meghan to her native Canada. Close friends are suggesting that Megxit – Prince Harry and Meghan’s departure from the UK to Canada – could have hastened Autumn’s shock decision. Sports marketing consultant Peter, 42, and Autumn, 41, who is a management consultant, have two children – Savannah, nine and Isla, seven. It is believed the daughters have dual Canadian citizenship which means they could easily live in Canada if Autumn were to return there.

One pal revealed: “Peter is absolutely devastated by this and just didn’t see it coming. He thought he was happily married and had the perfect family with two lovely daughters. But he is now in total shock. Autumn is a wonderful wife and mother and a very intelligent woman but she’s been telling her friends for some time that there were issues. She is a favourite of the Queen and I’m sure Her Majesty will be very upset by this as well. It’s the last thing she needs after all her recent troubles and you get the feeling that the royal family is falling apart a little bit.”

Those close the couple have expressed concern that Autumn might want to start a new life in Canada, just like the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided. A friend said: “What worries some of us is that Autumn may want to go back to Canada. Maybe she has been influenced by Harry and Meghan’s departure. Perhaps she thought if that can happen then I can leave as well? That might be unfair on her but you have to consider it.” No other party is involved in the split, our sources said. A pal explained: “Certainly none of us think either Peter or Autumn are involved with anyone else. 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.”

[From The Sun]

I love how Meghan and Harry are minding their own damn business in Canada and Miami and they’re still getting blamed for breaking up the Phillips family. Is it possible that Autumn saw the Sussexit and she thought “why not me?” Possibly. But it’s far more likely that Autumn and Peter’s marriage has been on the rocks for a while and no one was paying attention to it because of Meghan and Harry. I’m so disappointed in the royal reporters – they missed out on months of interesting marriage-woes gossip because of their single-minded devotion to smearing Meghan.

Also: my guess is that Peter probably was fooling around, but that Autumn left him for many different reasons. Also: the Sun broke the story. Dan Wooten, the guy with all of the leaks from Kensington Palace. Uh… is Prince William throwing his cousins under the bus now??

The BBC confirmed the news a few hours ago, btw: they say that Autumn and Peter have decided to divorce because it is “the best course of action for their two children and ongoing friendship,” and they plan to share custody of their daughters. The BBC also says that Autumn and Peter told the Queen and the rest of the royal family “last year.” WELL.

    There was a Celebitchy who predicted this for this year. Slow clap.

    Din take long to blame the Sussexes!

    • Becks1 says:

      I think it was me, but I don’t remember the specific post where I said it. But I thought we would hear about a divorce from one of the grandchildren this year.

      • Nahema says:

        I think I remember you predicting something along these lines @Becks1.

        The whole moving to Canada thing sounds like an attempt to get people riled up over Harry & Meghan again. They have kids and have said they’re sharing custody, which is much more difficult if you live in different countries.

      • Alexandria says:

        Yea I think it’s you Becks! Not that I’m gloating, there are kids involved, but still an interesting prediction.

      • BeanieBean says:

        So, Becks1, got any numbers you like?

      • Becks1 says:

        Okay I went back and looked, and all I said was I had a “feeling” something big was coming down the pipeline, and I speculated it may be a divorce among one of the grandchildren.

        but I also was swearing right up until to that Sussex Royal IG post that the Sussexes would never leave the UK or stop being FT working royals, so you should only trust me so much.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I thought it was going to be a Linley/Snowdon divorce, but I guess Serena is in it for the long haul.

      • Sofia says:

        @NOTA: you would have reckoned a Snowdon divorce? What royal gossip did I miss here?

      • notasugarhere says:

        Those two have always felt like a set-up/cover-up to me. She’s in it for the access and lifestyle, he’s in it for the cover.

      • Sofia says:

        @NOTA: Why does she need the lifestyle? Isn’t her father an Earl in his own right? She was already in the aristocratic circle before her marriage to David. If she married him for reasons other than love then I don’t think it’s for the lifestyle. A title perhaps but she was already “The Honourable Serena Stanhope”

      • Carrie says:

        Sofia, I remember back in the day that Linley wrote love letters to Princess Diana. The Linley / Serena marriage was hanging by a thread. I think her fathers title is trade.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Sofia – David Linley is very well connect on the Continent and in Asia. a They have a “house” or large villa which IIRC is it Italy.

        Serena Stanhope is like Rose Hanbury in that their families have been at “court” for years. I do not see either on of these ladies getting a divorce regardless of what the status of their marriage is because that Is “not the way things are done” in their sets. Serena is definitely is all the important sets ie… the London Set, the polo-hunting set as they lease a large manor house from the Duke of Beaufort on the Badminton Estate and the Anglo-Europeans Set on the Continent.

        I would be willing to bet Serena Stanhope is one very happy lady and knew exactly what she marrying into just like Rose Hanbury.

      • notasugarhere says:

        France. The same house in France, leased out as a hotel, where the topless photos of Kate were taken. The business isn’t doing well, Serena had to close her shop in London. But as BTB wrote, it is the lux Continental, estate in France, selling articles about their homes to posh magazines lifestyle to which I alluded.

      • Sofia says:

        @NOTA, Tampa and Carrie: Thanks guys! It seems almost all of these aristo marriages are for business only. They have kids with the wife/husband but the love and true intimacy is left for the mistresses/male lovers

    • Smalls says:

      Princess Michael of Kent lives in Kensington Palace, and I have zero doubt that she enjoys leaking to the press and causing chaos. She has as devastated by having to be related to a “black” American actress. Devastated. Princess Michael is a catty, horrid racist with absolutely nothing else to do with her life than pass along scraps to the vultures. The things she has said are seriously jaw-dropping.

      • notasugarhere says:

        M-C The Baroness is not on the inside when it comes to what is happening in the family. KP leaks to Wooten are from William, that’s clear.

      • ariel says:

        My favorite thing about “Princess Michael” is that, pathetically, Michael is of course, not her name. But she can only be called “Princess” if she uses her husband’s name. It is his title.
        So she has given up self to be “royalty”.
        Bless her creepy, racist heart.

      • Humbugged says:

        Yet her daughter in law is the Jewish actress Sophie Winkleman

      • notasugarhere says:

        Are you under the mistaken impression people cannot be selective in their racism? If so, see Drumpf.

      • BeanieBean says:

        I think Princess M is as anti-semitic as she is racist. Wasn’t her father a member of the Nazi Party? Fairly high ranking?

      • YaGotMe says:

        I have to admit, I get a giggle out of Princess Michael…I can imagine myself styling as Princess Bob ( hubs is Robert ) and having to forego my legal name so I can be…Princess Bob.
        I can’t forgive her twatwaffle ass for the brooch so I get a bit of evil satisfaction knowing people call her Mike.

      • kerwood says:

        But let’s not forget that Princess Michael is the daughter of a Nazi. She’s got nothing to be proud of.

      • Valois says:

        BeanieBean, her father was a member of both NSDAP and SS (regular party member, part of a special SS regimen). He joined the NSDAP in late 1930- membership numbers were rising dramatically from 1928 onwards, but 1930 was still a pretty early time to join. The NSDAP had joined its first coalition in early 1930 so it was considered a party very much on the rise.

        German nobles in general were extremely nationalist, the majority of them hated the Weimar Republic and democracy in general and a lot of them joined the NSDAP around 1930. There were much more “noble” party members than what would have been normal given their % of the general population.

        He had some problems with the SS though. Not because he was, you know, opposed to murdering millions but because he believed that Himmler was too low-born to give him orders and because he practiced his Catholic faith openly. He got kicked out in 1944- again, not because he had voiced any moral objections.

  2. OH NO says:

    If she thought this was the best course of action for her and her children, all the power to her!

    At this point divorce is a Windsor tradition anyways.

    William’s probably someplace in the English countryside with his cheek pressed against a rainy window being all sad and whateva as his peers get to go live the lives they want

    • Marjorie says:

      I like the image of Bill staring out a window in the rain…except Bill doesn’t think he has peers. There’s him, and some grandchildren the queen brings to church sometimes.

    • Becks1 says:

      @OhNo –

      the tabloid cover for this from the Sun is so ridiculous and over the top, and some of the responses on twitter were like, omg, the queen must be so heartbroken, how will she go on?!?!?!!?

      And the best response I saw to that was just “three of her four kids are divorced. She’ll be fine.”

    • Tessa says:

      I remember how their children were trashed for “pushing” George. Labeled “brats” and so on. Autumn should keep them away from the toxicity.

      • Mumbles says:

        I don’t remember that at all. On the contrary it looks like photos from the events that George and Charlotte look up to those cousins, especially Savannah, who seems to delight them with her antics.

        I do remember when Savannah covered George’s mouth when he was talking during the Trooping of the Colour but the coverage was she was cheeky, not a bully.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Mumbles, she pushed him when they were at some horse event. They were just kids larking about, but the press got really stupid about it.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Beanie yes I remember that. It was one of those stupid non-stories. they were rough-housing/playing like kids/tumbling about/whatever and the press made a lot of comments about Savannah’s behavior towards George.

      • TheOriginalMia says:

        I remember those comments, Tessa. It was ridiculous. Kids being kids. Savannah & Isla were called brats because they were having fun. Tabs want the kids act a certain way towards FFFK George and they just want to horse around with their cousin.

      • Kebbie says:

        @Mumbles Here’s one of the articles

        https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5838841/amp/Savannah-Phillips-pushed-Prince-George-hill-polo.html

        The article itself calls it playful, but the headline of course wrote PUSHED in all caps and noted George was third in line. The “best rated” comments call her nasty, vicious, and label her a bully.

        The British tabloids know the reaction their articles will elicit.

      • Becks1 says:

        I hate that I just clicked on the Mail, but I mean, really. Thankfully he wasn’t hurt! later in the day Kate was seen consoling him, unsure if the moments were connected!

        I think George survived the shove and is just fine.

      • notasugarhere says:

        He also survived being pulled out of the path of polo ponies by Autumn when he was a toddler, while Kate sat on a hit watching all of it happen.

      • PrincessK says:

        I saw the video and felt sorry for George, he wasn’t just pushed down a hill, his crayoning stuff was thrown after him. Kate saw what happened but didn’t want to appear overprotective and so a bodyguard picked him up and dusted him down.

      • Snap Happy says:

        @PrincessK – I agree. He was definitely pushed. And not just pushed over, he was pushed down a hill. He could of gotten hurt. I’m not saying anything negative against Savannah’s character, but it was rough.

  3. aquarius64 says:

    Sad for the children. 12 years together and the BRF knew last year which means there have been ongoing problems. And you bet the tabloids are going to turn over every rock to find something. A royal divorce and custody fight sell.

    Dan Wooten usually gets royal dirt from KP. If a Cambridge minion is snitching it makes you wonder what is going on with Bill and Kate….

    • Mac says:

      Why would KP wait months to leak the news? This came from Peter, look at how he is portrayed as the victim.

      • (TheOG)jan90067 says:

        Par for the course for Windsors: blame the married-in spouse. Always. Expect more stories about Autumn’s hard partying *youth*, how wild she *was*, how *she* blindsided poor Peter… This is a classic BRF tactic.

      • Becks1 says:

        And its interesting bc some on here have said that about Will and Kate – that IF they divorce, the Windsors will turn on Kate and the Middletons very rapidly. I think this shows the point – this article def makes it seem like Peter is the loving adoring husband and Autumn is walking away.

        The BBC correction/clarification is interesting because I assume that came from a royal source, and it contradicts the first story, but who knows.

      • Emmitt says:

        Because KP really doesn’t have any new news to report on the Sussexes, and Bill needs to feed the tabloids something so they don’t start reporting on rose gardening again.

      • Aria says:

        Becks1 I said that Windsor will turn quickly on Kate and middleton. That’s why mama and Kate are in panic mode and so many sugar article how only Kate can save the monarchy. That’s why kate is putting so much pda in Wales. That’s why they are shock that harry is leaving. They think Meghan will leave not harry. Plus kate and will marraige is on rocks and this will push forward for William happiness. William doesnt want first to get divorce now peter done that he will do that. If peter has separate last year which makes me think abt William bold move to bring his mistress to chruch. Kate looks like ghost in that body. They didnt take any vacation which they take during this time. I always said Windsor men are selfish and they put their happiness above all. I also believe Kaiser peter may have side piece and they are spinning the blame on woman like with diana and fergie. I remember in the height of jeffrey scandal , one report says that queen is mad at fergie beacuse of her only andrew had this weird attraction to underage gril. I mean wtf. Kate stans are underlining the normal bill that he cares so much abt Kate. Let’s see . One honest prediction reader said that one of queen grandchild will be divorce I thought it will be Zara and that reader said william and kate will be separated for sometime publically. One of the prediction has come true , let’s wait and watch for other prediction.

      • WendyWoo says:

        What’s ironic is that this “blindsided” narrative actually makes him look WORSE, not better. If you think everything is good while the spouse is about to bolt, YOU are the problem. It means you’re oblivious and neglectful.

    • notasugarhere says:

      William will snitch about anyone to keep the RRs from asking questions about Rose.

  4. Powermoonchrystal says:

    OMG. The gall and caucasity to try to blame Harry and Meghan not once, but thrice in the same article. So lame. But I am always sad when a family separates. Oftentimes, it is certainly for the best, but it is always sad, and a really tricky road, when there are children involved. Good luck to them.

  5. theothercleo says:

    I guess I should not be surprised that the Sun is trying to include Harry and Meghan in their narrative but…seriously? You don’t divorce after almost 20 years together and two children just because your husband’s cousin moved to your home country.
    It’s quite sad and complicated when two people breakup after such a long time,I wish them and their daughters the best.

    • Couldn’t agree more theothercleo. I knew the minute I saw the headline that the Sussexes — especially Meghan — would be dragged into the story in a negative way. And bingo, there they are — second paragraph. I’m also willing to bet that there is a third person somewhere in this breakdown — if not actively still involved, then in the not so distant past.

    • Ainsley7 says:

      Especially when the family could have just moved to Canada. Peter used to live and work in Hong Kong when their girls were little. They don’t work for the BRF or have security paid for by the public. So, Harry and Meghan leaving wouldn’t have made Autumn want to leave too. She was never trapped there to begin with. They could have packed up and moved at anytime.

    • PrincessK says:

      The tabloids need to sell papers and only Meghan inserted into the story really rakes in the money.

  6. Lara says:

    Probably didn’t want her daughters around Prince Andrew

    • ADS says:

      Bazinga!

    • RogerOThornhill says:

      You may be commenting in jest, but that crossed my mind too. What sane person would want their kids around that, the grandma who’s protecting that, and the rest of the family who just tried to publicly crucify Harry and Megan?

    • kerwood says:

      If I were a member of the royal family and the mother of young girls, I’d be on the first thing smoking to put as many miles as I could between my children and this nest of sick
      (and sickening) vipers.

  7. Enn says:

    Um, “they missed out on months of interesting marriage-woes gossip” is a weird perspective for a relatively quiet couple who have young children. Divorce is hard on kids, even when it’s the healthiest choice for everyone. I hope Savannah and Isla adjust well and have the support they need to adjust to their new normal.

    • ADS says:

      To be fair Kaiser is simply making a point about what the RR’s feed off of. But they were so busy creating drama and dreaming up smears where there were none that they missed out on the real drama of another royal couple right under their noses

      • Sid says:

        Peter might not be a working royal but there have definitely been gossip stories published about him and also about Zara in the past. The brouhaha over his wedding photos being published, him getting paid to “event plan” that celebration for the queen, the stories and photo of Mike Tindall being a little too friendly with a woman in a bar, the dodgy ways Peter and Zara have made money, etx. Yet somehow the gossip reporters missed this story.

      • notasugarhere says:

        The RRs were so busy attacking Meghan, they missed the divorce of Davina and Gary Lewis completely.

      • baytampaBay says:

        I have no idea who Davina and Gary Lewis even are!!!! LOL! LOL!

      • notasugarhere says:

        She’s one of the daughters of the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester. She married Gary Lewis, a Maori BTW, fifteen years ago. We used to see them hanging out at horsey events with Peter, Autumn, Zara, Mike, and kids.

  8. Flamingo says:

    If the royal family has known since last year, then they are releasing the story now to draw attention away from something else. What could it be?

    • Sofia says:

      The said in a statement that they didn’t feel the need to release anything official because Peter and Autumn are not senior royals and are untitled

      Wonder why it took a year for Wooten to find out? And how would the RF explain her absence at family events? We’re they planning to casually drop they got divorced when Trooping the Colour came around?

    • Erinn says:

      I think it’s perfectly possible that this flew under the radar largely because there’s just no real interest in these two compared to more prominent royals.

      Though, there is a decent precedent set for a distraction roll out, so who knows. It’s also possible that there was a time where they were working on things, I suppose, so that could have made things go quiet.

      I suspect one of them might be ready to roll out a new partner.

      • Sofia says:

        The conspiracy theorist in me says this was purposefully leaked/exposed in order to keep the press of someone’s back. That someone may be from KP because this story came from Wooten and the last few weeks have shown he might know someone in KP. The Cambridges get the press of their backs and the press get to sensationalise and over analyse the divorce of two private people. But that’s a pretty big accusation I’m making so don’t jump me. I know I know.

        However the rational side of me says this was probably kept under wraps because they don’t want a big hoo hah with people speculating over private matters. But once again how were they going to explain her absence at trooping? Would she just come along and everyone would pretend they were still married? And how didn’t any courtier leak this? Just means they can shut up about certain things.

      • Erinn says:

        All good questions, Sofia. I’m with you – kind of caught between the expectation of a good old fashioned distraction and the idea that MAYBE there’s a small chance they’re all just handling it super well and have mutually agreed to keep pretty quiet about all of this for the kids’ sakes.

        I do wonder about the Wooten connection. I think it would make a lot of sense that he has a connection in KP – or at least SOME palace. I think that’s just the most sensible option, and usually the most obvious one is the correct one. And the Trooping thing is interesting. I wonder if they were just going to play happy family and go together?

      • Mac says:

        Since the article is all about how poor Peter was blindsided by this I think we can safely assume he is the leaker.

      • Sofia says:

        @MAC: That could just be the RF at work. They always protect their own even if he’s 15th in line and untitled. They’re not going to put an ounce of blame on Peter and find ways to blame it on Autumn and others (like the Sussexes as the article says)

      • Sam Louise says:

        I find it curious that the Daily Pail et al keep saying Peter was totally taken by surprise. One of the quotes is “He thought he was in a happy marriage!”. LOL. Obviously he wasn’t paying attention (and that may be why she’s asked for a divorce – inattentive partner).

      • Sofia says:

        @Erin: Someone mentioned upthread that last year could have meant 6 weeks ago at Sandrigham so it’s not too long for Wooten to have dug and found something out.

        And then someone mentioned that Peter could have leaked this but why leak your own separation lol? Release an unofficial statement (like they’ve done) and then do palace overdrive about how sad you are. Peter is sleezy with his businesses, I doubt he’s sleezy over his personal life

      • I see a bit of distraction in this coming out now. Andrew and the Queen were all over the news yesterday for the Chinese Ambassador fiasco, now — boom — here is something else for the RR to feed on. Me thinks someone threw this out there, especially considering that it is Wooten who caught the story.

      • Becks1 says:

        Right I don’t think Peter leaked this. There would have been no reason to. They could have announced the divorce and then started the whole “it was a happy marriage, Peter was blindsided” story. Since there ISNT that much attention paid to these two, and we rarely seem as part of the royal family minus Ascot, Trooping and Sandringham for Christmas, it could have been a very low key announcement and I don’t think the public would have cared that much to assign blame either way.

        The story from DW with the almost immediate follow up from BBC makes me think someone leaked who wasn’t supposed to. But again, we all know I’m a conspiracy theorist.

      • baytampaBay says:

        “But again, we all know I’m a conspiracy theorist.”
        @Becks1 – And very good one; one of the best!

      • M.A.F. says:

        “Though, there is a decent precedent set for a distraction roll out”

        The big distraction right now is Andrew hanging out with the Chinese Ambassador (along with his ex wife) and the growing rumors of him coming back to work (and the push for his daughters). This is why I feel that a lot of the issues/stories about the Sussexes were from Andrew and not William but that is an unpopular opinion around here.

    • Belli says:

      Well it came via Dan Wootton, so that might narrow it down…

      • YaGotMe says:

        Legit question because I truly don’t know how the RR works, does this Wooten fellow have other stories or columns or is he some type of unofficial spokesperson? Whenever I see a story attributed to him, it is lauded as team Cambridge, or does he cover other stuff not Royal?

      • Becks1 says:

        He covers the royals in general but I think his partner works at Kensington Palace? So it makes sense that some of the leaks would at least be unofficially sanctioned by KP.

      • Sofia says:

        @YaGotMe: Officially he’s just your regular tabloid reporter. However he was the one to break the “Sussexes move to Canada” and some other stories that paint the Cambridges in very flattering lights. And I think he might be dating Christian Jones aka KP communications secretary (whatever his role is)

      • GuestWho says:

        @YaGotMe – Wootton is either good friends with or in a relationship with KP’s communications director (is that the correct title? Not entirely sure. But there is a really close connection.)

        He does cover other things besides RR – and he’s generally a bully.

  9. tmbg says:

    I feel bad that those kids probably won’t see their dad that much now. I don’t know why anyone would connect this to H & M, though. Autumn is from Canada. It makes sense that there’s where she would head if her marriage fell apart.

    • maximeducamp says:

      The article states that they are going to share custody, which suggests that she and the kids will remain nearby. The whole thing about her going to Canada is pure speculation. Basically she’s Canadian, so some “sources” stated that they are worried that she *might* want to take the kids and go back to Canada and gossip sites and tabs are emphasizing that aspect of it because it makes it easy to bring in Meghan and Harry.

      Not directed @tmbg or really anyone in particular but this is a gossip site–we all speculate and gossip or we wouldn’t be here–but I wish that would stop accepting and/or presenting speculation as fact.

      • Yes and we all know that Meghan’s name in any article generates CLICKS = $. Autumn has been living in UK for 20 years. Her life is there, her friends are there, and her children have their lives and their father there. Bringing in the word Canada, allows them to insert Meghan’s name. 🐥🐥🐥 Cheap. Cheap. Cheap.

  10. Marie says:

    Since this came from Dan Wotten, the tabs must have have something really bad on William. Good for Harry and Meghan for getting out.

    • leigh says:

      If Wills leaked this he may be looking to be more creative with what he feeds the press now that H&M are gone and Kate/Carol may have said to find something else to cover your affairs besides pics of our kids. So, “Hey Dan, no pics of George or Charlotte this month, ok bud? But you know my cousins Peter & Autumn? They’re splitsville … print that one, ok? “

    • February Pisces says:

      Yes. There isn’t anyone who William wouldn’t throw under the bus to save himself. If William did leak this via KP and wootton then he is literally the worst POS out there. Maybe autumn and Peter weren’t ready to go public yet. But this divorce will run for a while and keep the tabloids busy.I feel sorry for Autumn as she will probably be fed to the wolves. She might be their new target for a while anyway.

        exactly what many of us have said – that William would need a new target to throw to the wolves. Like you said FP this will keep the tabloids busy for a while

        At this point its starting to seem so obvious that you really have to wonder if things are at the breaking point with the Cambridges.

      • HMMMM says:

        she’s already being thrown to the wolves, there’s a daily mail story about how – gasp – she mentioned alcohol and weed in her high school yearbook and how she liked to party.

      • baytampaBay says:

        Please give me the name of at least five people who did not mention alcohol and weed in their high school yearbook and how they liked to party as I myself can only come up with one name of one person who did not party from age 18 to 28. I went to university in Atlanta, Georgia and all I did for six years was study, sleep and party; rinse and repeat.

      • February Pisces says:

        The daily mail now says both Autumn and Peter ‘possess a love of making money’. Lol, it’s called earning a living, it’s what most people do. I think this maybe from KP to make all other royals look thirsty and money grabbing whilst the Cambridge’s are the only dutiful ones who are holding things together.

  11. Lulu says:

    Bwahahahaha at the Sussex deflection. I mean….Rly?!?! Outside of that ridiculousness this is sad and I hope the kids are loved and happy.

  12. Aa says:

    Perhaps we should now see that Chinese milk ad and as not just tacky cashing in, but as a sign of money issues and a failing business. Infidelity is certainly a possibility, but men who are failing in their employment can also become toxic.

    • Sid says:

      Peter’s moneymaking schemes have always come across as sketchy. Selling the photos of his wedding and not even warning his family that the photographer would be taking those candids of them after the ceremony. All that money he got for “event-planning” that celebration for the queen. Sketchy fees for “consulting” in areas where he has no real training. All odd.

      • (TheOG)jan90067 says:

        Autumn’s financials aren’t much better. I read somewhere her companies are deeply in debt with very little cash assets. But let’s face it; he has a trust of a few million from TQM, he lives rent free on his mother’s estate; I’d bet everything that Anne has trusts set up for her kids, too, that they receive the interest off of now. While he/they “work”, they are hardly living hand to mouth, and don’t have to worry about mortgages, health ins., or very much else. There’s more to this.

      • BeanieBean says:

        I was reading about their respective resumes–she was a PA when she met him, he was…doing something in banking (with his degree in something to do with sports), then event management, then…. I don’t know. Very odd. I mean, it’s normal to change jobs, I just never understood how he got high-level employment, other than based on his ‘royal’ status.

      • HMMMM says:

        apparently they no longer live on anne’s estate, they live in london. the tindalls are still on anne’s estate.

      • baytampaBay says:

        “doing something in banking” I think Peter work in the PR department for a bank and handled all the bank’s sponsorship deals especially in the area of sporting events such as Capital One sponsoring a Formula 1 race or rugby event.

      • notasugarhere says:

        He also used to be a ‘talent manager’ but his only two clients were Zara and Mike.

    • YaGotMe says:

      In all fairness, so can women. I know she has two or three enterprises of her own and reports are the celebrity car thing is in debt and losing money. They are so back burner I don’t know much about their finances. It just doesn’t feel right assuming he had an affair or became toxic with so little information.

  13. Sofia says:

    She’s not moving to Canada. The Phillipses released a statement that they intend to share custody and that they both intend to live in Gloucestershire.

    I honestly wonder what happened? Even if they told the Queen last year, I wonder what broke up an 11 year marriage (at the time it was 11 years)

    And divorce #5 that Betty has to witness in her reign

    • Nic919 says:

      Even if she did move to Canada, it’s not like it’s a war zone or arctic tundra. Millions of people live there and manage to have fulfilling lives. I would argue that it is also a less repressive society, especially for women in that circle. The arrogance of the UK media with the “OMG Canada” approach basically shows how insulated they are.

      • Redgrl says:

        @nic – yeah – she’s from Montreal- one of the most amazing and dynamic cities in the world, so the OMGCANADA comments are even more ludicrous..

      • DM2 says:

        Good lord, this. Montreal is just across the pond; she’s no doubt been back and forth visiting for the duration of her marriage. M & H are further away from the UK than Autumn’s home province. The press is just ridiculous and hyperbolic.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, I love how “moving to Canada” has become the same thing as being exiled to Siberia or something. IF Autumn did return to Canada, I imagine they would work out a visiting schedule where the kids spent a month with Peter around the winter holidays and then maybe a long break during the summer or something. Or in the reverse, if the kids stayed in the UK. Its not like it would be this huge journey and they would never see each other.

        That said, she’s been in the UK now for well over a decade so I imagine she has roots here, including her children and their cousins, so it is not surprising to me that apparently she is staying in the UK.

      • Oh_dear says:

        A friend of mine has a sister who moved to England with her husband and 2 kids for his work in the financial industry. They are all Canadian but he worked in Chicago for a few years before moving to England. They were there for about 8 years before separating and eventually divorcing. The company moved him back to the US and she refused to go. She and the kids stayed in England and he flew back every 3 weeks to spend 5 days with the kids. After 3 years of that she finally agreed to also get an apartment in Chicago but keep her house in England and she travels back there for breaks now while the kids are in school in Chicago. The travel is doable if the finances are there, but it would suck for the family (and it doesn’t sound like that is the route they are taking).
        But she did have the lawful right to stay in England with the kids when he returned to the US.

    • S says:

      “Told the Royal Family last year” could be equally true if they told them 40 days ago, not almost a year ago.

  14. S808 says:

    Very annoying for them to bring in the Sussexes. I’d say if she saw Meghan and Harry leave to find some peace and happiness then okay was inspired to do the same then okay. She doesn’t even seem to be moving out or anything so I’m not exactly sure why they’re getting divorced? Well I guess so they can both see other people without it being a big deal.

  15. Rapunzel says:

    There was also an article about the “hectic schedule” Will and Kate are keeping due to the extra load Sussexit has forced on them … saying that it’s brought them closer. Lol.

    Then this article on the Phillips marriage. Old news from last year conveniently timed for release, methinks.

    There is definitely something happening with the Cambridge marriage. There’s no other explanation. There’s even an article this morning saying Will, Kate, Charles and Cam are the “new fab 4.” They’re doing their first engagement together in 9 years!

    • It’s interesting isn’t it? According to all the reporting over the years, William has very negative feelings towards Charles and Camilla. Now the story is they are all feeling the love. Karma’s a bitch. I foresee a lot of clinched jaw photos of William. Also, the press needs to get over this “fab four” obsession they have. The only Fab Four, was the Beatles.

      • baytampaBay says:

        I have never understood Charles’ dynamic with his children, I read an article that Harry is not really that close to Charles either.

        I think Normal Bill’s problem with Camilla may go back to Cathy. I think I read somewhere that Camilla did not think too highly of Cathy and viewed her as sorta “uncool” and not fitting in. This maybe related to Cathy not being part of the aristocracy or landed gentry…ie…Cathy is not a real Turnip Toff.

      • Tessa says:

        I think Charles and William looked ridiculous spinning how “close” they are during the joint event. Camilla is not in any position to look down on anybody considering how she got in. She should be grateful Charles named her so he was obligated to her. I don’t like either Kate or Camilla and it is a shame they are the next two consorts. I think William resented his father using him in PR for Camilla way back when. The family is decidedly not close by any stretch of the imagination. William also seems to resent having to do more work something he should have thought about when there was still a chance for Harry and Meghan to stay.

    • Tessa says:

      Charles should not ever encourage the fab four. Let Kate and William go there own way.

    • Jaded says:

      If Kate’s perpetually exhausted and emaciated looks are anything to go by I’d say their marriage is in SERIOUS problems. Things seem to have escalated from the Rose Hanbury situation and then to Meghan and Harry’s departure. William is leaking like a sieve to distract but it wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see them take a “time out” on their marriage at the very least in the coming months.

    • MsIam says:

      Agree about the Cambridges, i definitely think something is up. So many articles going overboard about how happy and confident Kate looks and how she and William are closer than ever. All the while she is looking like she is slowly disappearing and we are not supposed to notice or say anything about it. I think this article was leaked to divert attention away from something, now that H&M have escaped and can’t be used for covering.

  16. GuestOne says:

    BBC said that royal family was informed last year and that Autumn will stay in the Gloucestershire& they will co parent.

    Must be sad for all involved. Hope the children can be protected as much as possible& they can co parent successfully.

    Problem is there is now this thirst 4 royal gossip so guess that’s why it’s leaked now. The royal reporters are being quite respectful. Such a contrast with how they speculate on divorce for others..

  17. Beach Dreams says:

    So the family has known since last year…and Dan Wooten suddenly has an exclusive piece on the news. I wonder who William will be throwing under the bus next. I also wonder what the media has on him besides Rose.

    • Nic919 says:

      Wootton’s exclusives have been a little too obvious for a while now. If this was known since last year, there was no need for this story. Most people don’t even care about those two anyway (or even know who they are). The timing of the release is interesting. Someone is feeding the tabloid beast, but at some point news about others will run dry and it will turn on them.

      • Becks1 says:

        And if this was going to be announced, which you would expect once it became official, it did not need to be splashed on the cover page of the Sun like it is. Its basically the whole cover!! If Peter and Autumn are so relatively unimportant and uninteresting, why the attempt to make this into a huge story if its not? I know people are going to say “clicks” but again, if they’re not that much in the public eye, how many clicks is it going to attract?

      • Sofia says:

        @Becks: Probably because this is the first “royal” divorce since 1996 and people are “animated” about it because they get to overanalyse and sensationalise the divorce between two private and untitled people

      • notasugarhere says:

        This is not the first ‘royal’ divorce since 1996.

        Marina Mowatt (daughter of working royal HRH Princess Alexandra) divorced in 1997.

        Lady Davina Lewis (daughter of working royals HRH Duke and Duchess of Gloucester) divorced quietly in 2018.

        There are probably more, but those come to mind.

      • baytampaBay says:

        Thanks nota! Now I actually know who Davina Lewis is! Becks1 mentioned her a couple of posts up and I had no idea who was being discussed.

      • Penguin says:

        People don’t care or know who Marina or Davina are. Peter as the queens grandson is far more recognisable

      • notasugarhere says:

        Few people know who Peter is. Even Autumn didn’t know who he was (Queen’s grandson) for the first two months of dating. Care or not, this isn’t the first royal divorce since 1997.

  18. RoyalBlue says:

    Sorry to hear this. The men in Grey will be bending over backwards now to ensure the Cambridges marriage stays intact. Lookout for more ribbons, ceremonial awards, tours and embiggening in the next year.

    Peter is a minor royal lower down the line of succession and likely cash poor. having to hustle to earn a living and having a myriad of failures and job changes could add stress to the marriage.

  19. YaGotMe says:

    Eh, maybe she found a race car driver, maybe he found a milk maid. I know this isn’t the couple whose divorce we were rooting for so hopefully the tabloids won’t beat the horse too much and they can work out a plan best for their daughters.

  20. Nola says:

    For their girls’ sake, I hope this is a smooth, peaceful transition.

    I’m not surprised by this announcement at all. I’ve been wondering if there was something going on because I noticed over the past year that Autumn and Peter didn’t seem to really interact at things like the annual Christmas walk, etc . The last few times they’ve done some sort of family walk, Autumn is walking and talking with one of the female family members, and Peter is totally separate from her. Or she has the girls, and he’s doing whatever (I have an easier time spotting Autumn in the videos / photographs).

    • I love the subtle shade in the article though that the “blood” grandson of the Queen is devastated and that Autumn — another “woman” who married into the Firm — is the one pulling the trigger.

  21. line says:

    Autumn is an Canadian, her family and most of her friends are lived in Canada. was the reason that she is want to rebuild a new life in Canada has nothing to do with the Sussexes. The simple reason that all articles about on family members should mentionned always with the Sussexes is the fact theirs generate more interest than others membres of House Windsor .

    • MaryContrary says:

      She’s not moving to Canada. She’s staying right where she’s at so they can co-parent. But I agree the Meghan & Harry angle is absurd.

  22. Becks1 says:

    I’m sorry to hear this for the children, but sometimes a divorce can be the best thing for the children (having two happy divorced parents rather than married parents who are miserable.)

    I also feel bad for them – if this was announced to the family, and they still did family events like Christmas at Sandringham etc. I think they were with the queen in Scotland too at one point and went to Balmoral, but I could be wrong (I know one RR labeled a blonde woman going to church as Autumn, but it wasn’t, but I think they were up there at another point.)

    It makes me wonder if it wasn’t set in stone – they were having issues, maybe had agreed to a trial separation or something, and now have decided to actually divorce, hence the announcement.

    Who knows. But Dan Wooten getting some pretty solid leaks in the past month is suspicious, right?

    Also, LOL at the article blaming this on Meghan. Nice try.

    • “…… hence the announcement.” Why would any “announcement” be handed to a tabloid reporter to reveal. An announcement would have come directly from Peter or Autumn to a legitimate news agency or from Buckingham Palace. Someone chose to leak this, in my opinion.

      • Becks1 says:

        No, you’re right. I’m wondering if this is more like Sussexit. Like, they were going to issue a low key announcement, and then it got leaked before

    • notasugarhere says:

      Autumn and Peter were on display with Queen and Charles at Braemar in September 2019.

  23. Sam says:

    I’ve never seen a picture of him before. Why am I weirdly attracted to him?

    • YaGotMe says:

      Perhaps because he still has some hair? Kidding, he’s not bad looking.

    • Becks1 says:

      He’s definitely aged the best out of the Windsor men at this point.

      • baytampaBay says:

        I think he looks like his father Mark Phillips when he was young. IMHO, he has that same “sporty” sensual look as a young Mark Phillips or young Andrew Parker-Bowels or young David Somerset, 11th Duke of Beaufort .

        I really think he looks like he step out of a Jilly Cooper Novel or a Ralph Lauren Polo advertisement.

    • Guest with Cat says:

      Okay. Let’s stage an intervention here. Look again. Stop squinting with one eye and closing the other.

      He looks like he got hit with a less heavy Windsor ugly stick than William did. But he does still look like William, only less emotionally constipated. With Liev Schreiber’s hair and an iPhone notch cut into his hairline.

      You can do better. We all can do better. This is a wonderful site dedicated to celebrity gossip about all sorts of hot looking celebrities.

      Now say five Hail Zendayas and go your way and sin no more. And please do not look at any more Windsor men! Autumn is kicking this one to the curb for a reason.

      • Becks1 says:

        LOL Guest with Cat!!!! This is hilarious. And you’re right. We need to move on from the Windsor men! I’m going to go find some pics of Chris Pine, ha.

      • baytampaBay says:

        OK! One last comment. Anne’s husband, that Mr. Timothy Laurence person, is still very distinguished looking and was very good looking when he was young.

        Mr. Timothy Laurence person gets a pass as he is not a Royal. He just married one.

        Now if one goes for the “London Look” David Linley would fit the bill. I have always found the 2nd Earl of Snowdon attractive for some reason I could never explain.

      • YaGotMe says:

        Now I’m kind of sad – my youngest son has that very prominent “iPhone notch” ie widows peak and is visibly balding at age 23. He is his paternal Grandfather’s son and he is so very self conscious about it and frankly, a teensy bit resentful because his brother has a full head of lucious hair.

        I know it isn’t personal, but when we go all in on genetic ‘ugly sticks’ I’m pretty sure it hits home for more than just one of us.

      • Tigerlily says:

        Guest with cat. Thank you! I’ve never found Andrew Parker Bowles even slightly attractive even when young. Actually kind of unfortunate looking in my eyes. David Somerset is meh as is Mark Philips young or old. In my humble opinion.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Tigerlily – What we all must remember is that the “looks” bar is set pretty low for English men. I have always thought the the best looking men were Yanks, Canadians and Australian. IMHO, English Toffs, who are not dandies, really do not know how to dress and/or really care about good dressing.

        Also, if one is older than dirt as I am, you view “old” photographs with a different mind set because you can remember what and or how “hot” men looked then. Styling and fashion trends have changed very much since the late 1960s.

        I look at pictures of grandmother when she was in her 30s and by today’s styling standards she looks like she is in her late 60s.

  24. Lisa says:

    Ridiculous to try to bring Harry and Meghan into this in any way. Good luck to them and hopefully they can work things out quite amicably.

    • Guest with Cat says:

      Meghan and her damned avocado toast! Destroying the environment. Starting wars, and now breaking up sorta royal white people’s marriages and upsetting the Queen. That unworthy b*t*h.

      Kate needs to ride to the rescue and save the monarchy with her wonderful homemade chutney.

  25. Sophie says:

    They knew about it for a year and it jus happened to come out now by a known friend of KP. I wonder who told him….and Meghan/Harry are of course to blame for this

  26. Ina says:

    It is possible that Peter told William to leak the news to Wooten and skew the story to make Peter look like the victim.

  27. Murphy says:

    This is a bummer, but I doubt she’ll go back to Canada, calm down.

  28. marni112 says:

    Not a chance Autumn is moving back to Canada with the children .Royal or not , one parent does not get to up and leave and move to another country with children .If Autumn tried to do that without Peter’s consent , he would easily succeed in arguing in court that the children’s habitual residence /ties/ school etc. were all in the UK. If Peter consents to the move then that is a different story but why would he do that as his time with his children would be significantly reduced ?

  29. KellyRyan says:

    Oh woe is me. Queenie is upset or might be upset. The only thing upsetting this isolated insulated biddy is the death of a Corgie.

    Favorite grandson? Watch the parade of favorites.

    • (TheOG)jan90067 says:

      Seriously! Wasn’t Harry touted as the “favorite” grandson until recently?

    • Thea says:

      Peter has always been called the favorite grandson. It’s not surprising considering he was the first. Other favorites that have been mentioned – Zara, B&E, and Harry. Note Will was never known as the favorite. Lol.

  30. MellyMel says:

    Eh, people divorce all the time. No biggie. But I am side-eyeing this story coming out now and from Dan Wooten. I see you Will. Anyways, Peter clearly is one of the better looking members of the Windsor family. I don’t pay attention to him, so I’ve never noticed.

  31. Jamie says:

    I kinda rolled my eyes at the blindside comment in the article. I know that’s supposed to make people feel sorry for Peter and make Autumn look bad but …

    In my experience, men only get “blindsided” by women leaving them because they’ve been ignoring many, many signs of trouble before the woman gives up and finally leaves.

    • Anonymous says:

      I agree. Most “blindsided” spouses have ignored their partner concerns. The partner no longer mentioning them is the true danger zone. Usually means partner is over it and quietly planning their escape. It’s why some supposedly happy married with children couples split when kids go off to college. The partner left the marriage mentally years ago and was simply waiting.

      • Sandy123 says:

        Bingo! When I left my husband he was “shocked!!!” Even though I had told him several months previously that I wanted a divorce. He didn’t choose to acknowledge that, so I walked away. Sticking your head in the sand doesn’t make your problems go away.

  32. Aria says:

    Peter was William rock for the marraige department. Wait and watch what normal bill is going to do with this . This is clearly shows that mama and Kate are in panic mode and her skinny bones are the obvious result of what will will do.

  33. Pierre Lecouteur says:

    AUTUMN TAKE YOUR KIDS AND RUN AS FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN FROM THIS TOXIC SO CALLED FAMILY

  34. Emmer says:

    The fact that she’s being blamed (not surprised) really means he screwed up. Give it a couple months and he will be crying about his broken heart to the women he’s been seeing for a year, the good “friend”.

    • Tessa says:

      I wonder how long it will take for the special friend of Peter’s to be revealed.

      • baytampaBay says:

        The Daily Fail will try to convince us that it was……….MEGHAN!

        Meghan has left the building and Peter can no longer cope. Now that Meghan is gone Autumn was forced to pick up the slack and she is having NONE OF IT!

  35. Sass says:

    Whoa. Someone got the good Mountbatten genes BIG TIME.

  36. A Guest says:

    IIRC, Autumn and the girls as well as Zara and Mike Tindell weren’t at Sandringham for Christmas. I think Peter was on the church walk.

    It was very quickly put out that they’ed spent the holiday with their father Mark Phillips. With all the fuss about Harry and Meghan not being there, most folks probably didn’t notice.

    And I think it was leaked to Dan Wooten to make Peter look sympathetic.

    • Becks1 says:

      Zara and Mike definitely weren’t there, because they were in Australia IIRC. But you’re right, I just went and checked, none of the Phillips were there for the Christmas walk (Peter went to church with “guests” a few weeks later, sans Autumn.)

      I didn’t even notice they weren’t there, that seems notable since they usually attend.

      • PrincessK says:

        I would not be surprised if the Tindalls move to Australia, they seem to be able to make money there.

      • baytampaBay says:

        Zara father’s Mark Phillips is highly highly connected in the equestrian world. Mark Phillips also spends quite a bit of time in Florida with the horsey Three-Day-Eventing Set. If you cannot smell the $$$$ you must have a bad head cold.

  37. TheOriginalMia says:

    Doubt Autumn will return to Canada. Maybe to visit, but for the most part, she’s been in England for over 2 decades. Someone on Twitter predicted troubles in their marriage. She picked up on the body language between Peter and Autumn at one of the weddings last year. Seems she was right. Rolling my eyes at the tabs’ lazy connection to the Sussexes. As if Autumn doesn’t have her own circle of friends and family to help her make this decision.

  38. Lizzie says:

    Of course this is spin to make him look good. Don’t know your wife is thinking of leaving or just don’t care?
    However with M&H showing that in 2020 you can successfully leave the firm AND have and even better life might inspire some minor royals. Maybe they don’t all wanted be be treated as nothing since they are not the heir. If the rest of the family have viable options then they can be treated better or let Bill and Kathy work full time.

  39. Anne says:

    I’m curious, what does Autumn do? I know they don’t have titles and are not senior royals, so I am curious if she has a regular job?

  40. Lowrider says:

    Lazy “journalism” by Wooten. Not many people would be interested in the Phillips divorce so he inserted the name that generates clicks and money: Meghan.

  41. adastraperaspera says:

    Is she trying to get out with her girls before bad news drops about Andrew and drags them all into it?

  42. Chimney says:

    All the attractive people are leaving the royal family. Kudos to Autumn and best of luck to her and her girls!

  43. L4frimaire says:

    Their marriage issues have nothing to do with the Sussexes, but the tabloids always have to throw them into the mix. It’s a tough family for women to marry into. One really pays attention to them anyway. Maybe Autumn saw that she didn’t have to put up with any nonsense and just had enough. I also suspect Zara is not that great to have as a SIL, and Autumn has probably seen a lot of behind the scenes toxicity, especially in the last few years. Side note, Peter and William look alike to me. He’s better looking than Will, but can definitely see the family resemblance.

  44. aquarius64 says:

    The Fail is now digging into Autumn’s past talking about her days of smoking pot in college. The press is going to drag her.

    • lirie says:

      They love dragging women down, don’t they?

      • baytampaBay says:

        I’ll take a drag……Pass that doobie over my way.

        Who in the world did not smoke some weed at some time in college?????????………maybe 5% of the university educated populous.

        FFS!!!!!!!!!Harry and Normal Bill smoked weed!!!!

    • AMM says:

      Obviously, I do not want her to be dragged through the mud. She should ideally be able to work family issues out in private and make this as easy as possible for the girls. But, if she does get the Diana/Fergie/Meghan treatment, I hope she really does take her butt to Canada and becomes bffs with the Sussexs. I want unity with the “exiled” royals (san Fergie, shes a mess). Could you imagine the outrage at the palace if Harry and Meghan stood by Autumn during the typical smear campaign they start against the non-royal divorcee? Its 2020 and people need to start pushing back against the Windsors.

      • Emmer says:

        We all know how Queenie treats her favorites. She should be prepared to be a scapegoat whenever Andrew, Peter or William need a distraction

  45. February Pisces says:

    Dan wootton leaked Sussexit before they were ready to announce their departure and now he’s leaked this. I’m convinced that Peter and Autumn probably weren’t ready to announce this yet too, but William had to provide dan with something to keep him fed. The fact Wootton has two major exclusives goes to show he must have something major of William. William is literally messing with people’s lives here. I hope Peter doesn’t forgive him for this. And as for Wootton, I think he wants people to know he’s getting exclusives from KP, just to brag cos he’s not very subtle.

    • Becks1 says:

      RIGHT. The fact that this comes so soon after Sussexit and it was clearly not something the Phillips were ready to announce yet it is suspicious. Someone leaked it.

    • Marie says:

      He also had Will’s BAFA speech preview and Beatrice’s wedding date. It’s so obvious. William must have done something pretty bad. I hope he suffers.

        Marie, yeah the Bafta speech is another to the list. How can one man get so many exclusives on the Royals in such a short space of time? Someone from the palace is obviously leaking to him. And from what I’ve seen its likely KP and its occupants.

        Something toxic is going on in those palace walls.

    So he’s like the only decent looking one out of the British Royal family. No, I do not think Harry is cute.

    • Originaltessa says:

      I think Eugenie is the only attractive person to spawn from that family. I agree about Harry. But I don’t find this dude attractive either. Looks like a weird bizarro version of William.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Agree, Will and Peter look a lot alike. Sorry but none of them are that attractive. Eugenie is what in the old days would be described as a handsome woman. Not traditionally pretty but still attractive, strong features. Beatrice, not a beauty, but could look better if she could dress herself and not seem so desperate. That’s about it.

      Have you seen Lady Helen Windsor (now Taylor) around the time of her marriage?

  47. Qwerty says:

    Are the British tabloids going to turn on her like they did poor Meghan? Oh, no wait, she’s white.

    • Deanne says:

      She’s also such a low level member of the RF, that unless some scandal comes to light, no one is really interested. Hence the tabloid suggestions that Harry and Meghan’s move made her long for Canada. They just had to be dragged into the mix.

  48. Jessica says:

    Just an aside – Kitty or whatever her name also did a milk ad, just FYI.

    • baytampaBay says:

      Kitty Spencer is not Royal she is a member of the titled aristocracy as her father is a peer.

      I also believe she just got engaged to some rather good looking trillionaire 30 years her senior but I could be wrong as Tatler makes so many mistakes in their fan fiction.

  49. Well-Wisher says:

    An observation into leaks of this sort – they serve three purposes (sofar) distraction, gloating and punishment.

    The Sussexes had all three because the were/ are the ” targets of blame “.

    But to expose private pain for non-titled royals is unnecessary callousness. Did Peter caused the wrath of someone? Did his mother? Did Authum? or Did Canada? or is he just a casualty of war?

    Don Wooten is so unlikable.

  50. Deanne says:

    She has two young daughters. His family are protecting a pedophile accused of raping teenagers. No wonder she wants a divorce.

    • YaGotMe says:

      The BRF has known who Andrew is long before her children were even born. Whatever the reasons are behind this split, Andrew isn’t it, the other leopards have know THAT one’s spots for a very long time.

      • Deanne says:

        For sure the rest of them have known, but she’s a Canadian married into the family 12 years ago. I didn’t really know anything about Andrew’s decades long history of problematic behaviour until the Jeffrey Epstein stuff started blowing up. Plus despite more and more grossness coming to light, they keep circling the wagons for him, while they couldn’t even be bothered to defend the newest member of the family from the brutal British press. There’s obviously more the the story, but I’m sure the RF is thrilled to have another distraction from Andrew’s participation in human trafficking and whatever crap William’s gotten up to that they’re trying to hide. Why anyone would want to be a part of that toxic waste dump of a family is beyond me.

  51. MymomcallsmeKnightingale says:

    Word on the street is that William is possibly the father of Rose’s children.I have absolutely no idea if that is true or not but it would explain so so much.The firm is said to be doing everything within it’s power to not have this information out there or even have the rumor of such a thing out there. Everybody in the family needed an out for William and hence why the takedown of Meghan happened with bouts of jabs at Harry but mainly Meghan.She was and is a sacrificial lamb for something and somebody (ies) and there’s no doubt about that.Charles is said to be in on the hit too only to save William assuming this is true but how disgusting would that be.Surely something has Kate rattled and him possibly being the dad and everyone finding out is epic.Like I said; I have no idea if this is true but it’s being discussed several places heavily.How and why is the loser Wooten getting all these stories?

    • Dilettante says:

      This is my suspicion about her youngest, but not the twins.

    • aquarius64 says:

      William with a royal outside kid? That will blow the Cambridge family image out of the water if true. No sympathy for Kate for choosing to stay because it looks like she sold her self respect for a tiara.

    • Sofia says:

      William could have a kid out of wedlock but not with Rose. From the pictures I’ve seen none of them look like they’ve got Mountbatten/Windsor/Spencer genes and we all know they are quite strong

      But then again I’m terrible at spotting family similarities so who knows

    • notasugarhere says:

      William’s rumored outside child is not said to be Rose’s, but from the stairwell incident at a club (caught on CCTV).

  52. blunt talker says:

    I read from a reliable source that they had separated for over a year. The entire royal family already knew this. They will co-parent in England for a while.

    Canada in here stealing all your young royals.

    (I’m not entirely sure that’s a good thing, but so far I like the ones we’ve snagged.)
