Who Is Peter Phillips? In Advance of The Queen’s Funeral, Peter Phillips Might Serve as A “Peacemaker”
As the state funeral for the Queen approaches, it looks that one member of the royal family may wind up being the person who helps repair conflicts between Princes William and Harry.
According to reports, tensions between the brothers have been growing ever since the Duke of Sussex stepped down from his royal duties and relocated to the United States with his wife Meghan Markle in 2020.
However, with their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s passing last week, it appears that tensions have subsided as they seek to present a united face during this time of mourning.
The brothers and their wives went on a walkabout together around Windsor Castle on Saturday (September 10), two days after Her Majesty’s death, to view floral tributes and meet with mourners.

Conveying the Queen’s coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall is another hint that relations between the two are improving. There, Her Majesty will lie in state until her funeral on Monday.
At this time, it is unknown whether or not the brothers will be buried side by side during the state burial, which will be broadcast across the world. The recent developments between the siblings, though, have rekindled optimism that this is possible.
This would be different from last year when the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin entered St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle with Princess Anne’s son Peter Phillips famously standing between the two.
Peter, the eldest grandchild of Queen Elizabeth and the seventeenth in line to the throne, is thought to have mediated disputes between his relatives at the time.
Many believe he will reprise that role at Monday’s state funeral. The Telegraph quotes a royal source as saying: “For the most part, Peter acts as a buffer between the two parties involved. He may try to reclaim that position in an effort to move them forward as a unit.”
Peter, Princess Royal, and his sister Zara Tindall, all of whom reside in Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire, marched in the parade from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall alongside William and Harry. He has also appeared alongside relatives during visits to examine tributes placed to the Queen.
Who is Peter Mark?
Peter Mark Andrew Phillips (born November 15, 1977) is the son of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips of the British Royal Navy. His grandparents are Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, making him their eldest grandchild and the 17th in line to the British throne.
Phillips got his education at Exeter and then started working for Jaguar Racing. At the small sports agency SEL UK, where he currently works as managing director, he deals with a wide variety of strategic and operational issues.
He wed the Canadian management consultant Autumn Kelly in 2008 at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel. The couple, who share custody of their two children, has been living apart since 2019 and will officially divorce in 2021.
On the 15th of November, 1977, at 10:46 am, Peter Phillips was born in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London. Prince Charles was the firstborn child of Princess Anne and Mark Phillips, who wed in 1973. After his birth, the Tower of London fired a 41-gun salute.
On December 22nd, 1977, Archbishop of Canterbury Donald Coggan baptized him in the Music Room of Buckingham Palace. Maternal uncles the Prince of Wales, Geoffrey Tiarks, Captain Hamish Lochore, Lady Cecil Cameron of Lochiel, and Jane Holderness-Roddam served as godparents.
He attended the Wembley Stadium Rugby League Challenge Cup Final in August 2012, as the Warrington Wolves defeated the Leeds Rhinos.
Phillips was in charge of planning the “Patron’s Lunch” for the Queen’s 90th birthday in June 2016 for an entire year building up to that month. Ten thousand people attended the event, which featured a parade down The Mall and a picnic in hampers.
Phillips was featured in a commercial for Bright Food, a Chinese food manufacturer, in January 2020. While surrounded by opulence, he promotes the company’s milk in the ad by posing as a “British royal family member.”
They dated for two years and lived together for eight months in 2001; Elizabeth Lorio is an American cod liver oil heiress. Four months later, he began dating flight attendant Tara Swain.
In 2003, at the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, Phillips met Canadian management consultant Autumn Kelly. On July 28, 2007, news of their engagement was released.
