AceShowbiz - Queen Elizabeth II's eldest grandson Peter Phillips is officially single after finalizing his divorce.
The son of Princess Anne and her ex-husband Mark Phillips was reported to have separated from his wife Autumn in 2019, and they finally confirmed the end of their 12-year marriage in February 2020.
Now the pair's request to make the decision legal has been granted, and the financial terms of the split have been approved by a judge at London's High Court.
In a statement released on Monday, June 14, a representative for the former couple, which will share custody of their two children, said, "Whilst this is a sad day for Peter and Autumn, they continue to put the well being and upbringing of their wonderful daughters Savannah and Isla first and foremost."
"Both Peter and Autumn are pleased to have resolved matters amicably with the children firmly at the forefront of those thoughts and decisions."
"Peter & Autumn have requested privacy and consideration for their children as the family adapts to a new chapter in their lives," it concluded.
Peter, a sports marketing consultant, is the first of his generation of royal family members to divorce.
The former couple first met in Canada back in 2003. At the time, the two watched the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. They got engaged in July 2007, and exchanged wedding vows at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle a year later.
Before Peter and Autumn confirmed their separation, words came out that the 43-year-old was left "devastated." An insider told The Sun, "He thought he was happily married and had the perfect family with two lovely daughters. But he is now in total shock."
