Peter Phillips broke pandemic rules, drove 460 miles & lied to cops, just to get laid

Peter Phillips and his wife Autumn Phillips arrive for Gold Cup day, The Festival  at Cheltenham Racecourse  2019, Cheltenham Glos

Peter Phillips is Princess Anne’s son and Queen Elizabeth’s first grandson by age. Peter and his wife Autumn announced their separation last year, but as far I know, they haven’t actually filed for divorce. The pandemic changed things for them too – while it sounded like Autumn was considering a move back to Canada, Peter’s sister Zara apparently convinced her to stay. Now Autumn and Peter are reportedly still living together during the pandemic, but they are not “together” in any sense. Well, now it looks like Peter has a side-chick in Scotland. And he broke pandemic travel rules just for a 460-mile booty call. Oh, and his booty call is a married woman and the cops were called on him! The layers of shenanigans with this story!

Cops quizzed the Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips after a complaint that he had driven to Scotland to see a married woman. Police, who were called by angry locals, “issued advice” to Phillips, 43, who lives 460 miles away in Gloucestershire.

Phillips, who lives at his mum Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire, turned up in the village of St Cyrus, Aberdeenshire. Police called on him and the 40-year-old mum of two at her £475,000 home. But officers decided he was not in breach of any Covid lockdown rules after he explained he was on a business trip.

The woman — who is separated from her husband — is a pal of Peter’s sister Zara Phillips from their days at private school Gordonstoun in Moray, Scotland. She attended 39-year-old Zara’s wedding to rugby star Mike Tindall in 2011. The woman and fellow ex-Gordonstoun pupil Peter met again at a school reunion. Dad-of-two Peter announced his split from Canadian wife Autumn, 41, in February of last year. He was spotted outside the married woman’s house and his Range Rover was still parked at her home yesterday.

One local source said: “It seems wrong he has travelled here from England, whatever the circumstances. Scotland is closed and if you flew here you would have to quarantine for ten days.”

A spokesman for marketing consultant Phillips said the royal had travelled on business with his company XL Medical, which provides rapid Covid tests. He added: “We do not comment on ­details or circumstances of Mr Phillips’ accommodation when travelling on ­business.”

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “At around 6.40pm on Friday 26 March, 2021, police received a report of a potential breach of coronavirus regulations at a property in St Cyrus, Montrose. Officers attended, spoke to the occupants and found no breaches of ­legislation.”

Mainland Scotland is in lockdown with travel only permitted for “essential purposes”. England has been under a “stay at home” order with a gradual easing of coronavirus rules starting tomorrow.

“Officers decided he was not in breach of any Covid lockdown rules after he explained he was on a business trip…” I’m sure he said “bidness trip” or perhaps he actually said “business trip” complete with air quotes and a wink. I’m sure he was doing some “rapid Covid testing” throughout the weekend. I bet he rapid-Covid tested his married lover so much that she was walking funny the next day. I mean, I actually *slightly* admire a man who is willing to drive 460 miles just to get some ass. That’s the kind of desperation and commitment we need as we’re coming out of the pandemic.

    Peter was just following the royal moral compass, which points north too…

  2. RoyalBlue says:

    So happy that Scotland outed him. Even they had enough of the Windsors.

    (and why is this grown ass man still living in his mother’s home) bunch of scroungers, all of them.

    • Yoyo says:

      Both Peter and Zara have homes on princess Anne property.
      You don’t call them the welfare royals for nothing.

    • JustBitchy says:

      I’d like to know more about the XL Medical and Covid testing. That might be some kind of grift 🤨

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        How do you think they’d even GET the job/commission to put it out if not for the connection?? Just like Jared & his brother starting that health care/testing company here.

    • Gail Hirst says:

      @RoyalBlue Generally I feel a great deal of resentment when people slag a son who is still living w/his mum. Mostly because 2 weeks after I bought my (1 bedroom) apartment w/inheritance from my Dad, I lost my job VERY unexpectedly. If my son hadn’t been willing to move into the bedroom w/me on a Murphy bed in the living room, I would have lost my job, my home AND the inheritance from my Dad…all through no fault of my own. At 52, I almost lost everything.
      So I’m sensitive when people slag sons living w/mums, because mine saved me and stayed until I was back up on my feet and could support myself again.
      In this instance, however, I’m in agreement w/Phillips living on not just mummy’s property, but on the taxpayers teat. It’s a good question….in this circumstance.

      • Faye G says:

        I agree with you, let’s not judge people for their living situations. I had to move back in with family after the pandemic, sometimes people face difficult circumstances and we should be gracious with each other.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        @gail, No, no, hell to the no. He will get slagged and dragged and every other agged under the sun. I am so sorry for the circumstances that ended up with you losing your job and bravo for your son. But, please don’t take everything you read here personally. It’s not about you. It’s about these rich, entitled, money grubbing individuals who have been pampered from birth, given access to the best schooling and contacts and still can’t save two cents of their own. This is about lazy people. full stop.

  3. lobstah says:

    He’s….kinda hot?

    • Millennial says:

      Oh my god I’m glad I’m not the only one. He definitely escaped the Windsor genes that some of his cousins… did not. They may both be douches, but I’ve always thought Peter and Zara were the better looking of all the cousins.

    • Jegede says:

      He’s kinda short and stocky, so I’ve never seen it.🤷‍♀️

      Then again, all the Windsor guys are.

      Will and Harry must thank God every night for the Spencer height.

    • MF1 says:

      Seems like a douche, but yeah, he is. Other than Harry, he’s easily the most attractive Windsor.

    • detritus says:

      I can see it, he’s got nice skin and clear eyes and good smile, but I can also feel the smarm and privilege through the screen so it kinda kills it for me. Maybe it’s the hat coat combo?

  4. Snuffles says:

    I love how Scotland is so done with the royal family. 😂

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Meanwhile on planet “not an entitled dip£hit” I could not attend my sister’s funeral because of covid restrictions, haven’t seen my family since last August and three family weddings were cancelled, changed and downsized. I have friends and coworkers all dealing with the same. I find nothing funny about this guy’s shenanigans.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      I’m so sorry that you’re going through such a tough time, ZB. Thoughts, prayers and hugs to you.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Thanks guys, it has been tough for everyone but seeing people like this guy behave as if the pandemic is no big deal sends me over the edge, so many in my family and friendships, work life have made so many sacrifices this year, many on the edge of financial hardship, losing loved ones, jobs gone, homes at risk but yeah Peter Philips needs to get laid so slap on the wrist and off he pops.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        It’s no big deal to them because I’d bet my last dollar EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM has gotten vaxxed already, and got it in the first round, w/the health care workers.

  6. Cecilia says:

    This whole family is in shambles

    • ShazBot says:

      I’d say the family is going on their Merry entitled ways and people are finally starting to be fed up with it and are calling them out on at least some of their shit

  7. ABritGuest says:

    Hmmm I find it strange that random locals would recognise Peter wasn’t meant to be in Scotland. Who really tipped of about Peter’s shenanigans?

    • Anna says:

      Oooo, I like it!

    • Jane says:

      Whoever tipped off the police didn’t necessarily do it because they recognised him, but simply because they saw someone who doesn’t live in the house visiting when they shouldn’t have been.

    • Harper says:

      I’ve definitely known the type of neighbors who would call this in, especially during a lockdown. I’ve lived next to neighbors that knew every village ordinance and would call the cops or village hall if there were any minor observed infraction in ordinary time. You bet those neighbors were peeking out from their curtains waiting for the cops to show up to bust “Buy this milk” Peter Philips.

    • Susan says:

      Would it be the equivalent of out of state plates on the car? I’m clueless about out-of-country licensing, other than theirs are the long rectangular types lol.

  8. Jegede says:

    All Peter Phillip’s paramours, legit look like sisters. 😄
    Almost identical.

    Though I’d say this one is the prettiest.

  9. Yoyo says:

    It not hard to tell a car with English license plates.

  10. Sofia says:

    If this was a “business trip” could said meetings or whatever not happen through Zoom? We’ve been zooming for about a year so surely some arrangements could have been made?

  11. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Of course, Daily Wail comments are all along the lines of ‘leave him alone!’ and ‘Curtain twitchers, it didn’t ought to be allowed!’ Any mention of Meghan being caught in such a position (not that she would ever be so bloody stupid, or immoral) and the resultant furore has been met with a flurry of red arrows.
    God, I HATE the Mail.

  12. Chaine says:

    Love how the Brit tabloids are so dedicated to slipping in the supposed price of everyone’s home no matter how irrelevant to the topic.

  13. Digital Unicorn says:

    LOL, I think we now know why his marriage is over – Autumn caught him banging his sister’s friend. I always thought it was weird that the statement they put out about their separation said no one else was involved when it’s now clear there was.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Unsurprising if that’s why it ended, and if he was also straying on his ‘business trips’ to film milk commercials. I think she stayed in the UK, for now, because it is easier with young children (10 and 8). It would have been difficult, but not impossible, for her to move them to Canada.

      For now, I think she (and the kids) live in Zara’s former small house on Anne’s estate. Peter isn’t made of money, she hasn’t worked full-time in awhile. They don’t have the money to support two households on two continents. In a few years, we might see her move to Canada with their daughters. Have them go to a posh/secure private boarding school with inheritance money from the Queen.

  14. SarahCS says:

    Wait, so I couldn’t travel from South West England (not a million miles from Gatcombe) to Scotland (also Aberdeenshire as it happens) for my aunt’s funeral once cancer finally finished destroying her body last September but he’s fine to pop up there to get laid?


    I’m so angry at this.

  15. Susan says:

    Someone needs to call an All-Windsor adjacent meeting and say something like this:



  16. whateveryousay says:

    Do they not have Zoom in Scotland?

  17. Princess Peach says:

    Zara and her brother seem quite unlikable. He is an obvious idiot horndog. Zara just seems super sneaky and untrustworthy. Like she convinced his ex to stay in England all while her brother was sleeping with one of her friends?

    • ncboudicca says:

      Good point, I was kind of actually wondering if Zara “convincing her to stay” theoretically to save the marriage was a cover for the institution giving her something to stay, so that they wouldn’t have yet another set of the Queen’s great-grandchildren being essentially spirited out of the country to North America. I know that sounds far-fetched, but imagine the optics.

    • what's inside says:


  18. JT says:

    This is just straight up tacky. I can’t believe they have the nerve to say that H&M need to uphold the values of the queen, when her other grandson is breaking lock down to bang his married booty call.

    • molly says:

      But, but, Harry and Meghan were WORKING SENIOR MEMBERS!!! She shut her own car door and touched her own stomach. The HORROR!

  19. Tessa says:

    Harry gets trashed when he’s loyal to his wife. The rest of royal family is far from perfect.

  20. Becks1 says:

    The royals are just really showing their entitled, spoiled, privileged asses to the world at this point, arent they?

  21. MerryGirl says:

    Kaiser, I’m like you…I’m kinda impressed he would go such a long way for a booty call LOL.

  22. Murphy says:

    This was the good laugh I needed this morning.

  23. Blerg says:

    Aw, but don’t drag Isla into this garbage with that photo. These kids are not responsible for the sins of their selfish parents, and that photo of a minor inside a car is intrusive and not cool.

  24. AnnaKist says:

    Indeed. After all, rules and protocols are for the peasants, not the posh…

  25. boyd says:

    I’d like to think he put on Golden Earring’s ‘Radar Love’ and drove fast to the bass beat.

  26. says:

    In that header picture Peter looks an awful lot like William to me. So not attractive.

  27. K says:

    I thought it was William in bad incognito. Good lord those genetics are here to stay.

  28. Hmn says:

    He’s a better looking William. They have a very similar face

  29. Malachite says:

    Peter Phillips is hot! It’s true I haven’t gotten any in way too long, but if he wanted to drive 500 miles for a roll in the hay with me, I’d be down.

  30. Jumpingthesnark says:

    “It’s business time!” Any chance I get to reference Flight of the Conchords, you bet I’m gonna take it!!!!!

  31. Emily_C says:

    Honestly? Relatable.
