He was born on November 15, 1977 to Anne and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips.
Peter, whose sister is Zara Tindall, did not inherit a royal title at birth and occupies 16th place in the line of succession.
According to reports, Peter’s parents turned down an offer from the title queen because they wanted their children to lead normal lives.
Royal sources previously claimed that Peter was the Queen’s “favorite grandson”.
Peter lives on his mother Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire.
He has two children – Queen Savannah’s great-grandchildren and Isla Phillips – with his ex-wife, Autumn Phillips.
When did Peter break up with his ex-wife Autumn?
Peter confirmed that he and Autumn divorced last February.
A statement made on her behalf stated at the time: “After Peter and Autumn informed HM The Queen and the members of both families last year, they jointly agreed on a separation.
“They had decided that this was the best course of action for their two children and the lasting friendship.
“The decision to get a divorce and share custody came after many months of discussion and is sad, but amicable.
“The couple’s first priority will remain the continued well-being and upbringing of their wonderful daughters, Savannah and Isla.
“Both families were of course sad about the announcement, but they supported Peter and Autumn in their joint decision to raise their children together.
“Both Peter and Autumn stayed in Gloucestershire to raise their two children where they had settled for several years.”
Who are Peter’s children?
Peter and Autumn welcomed the Queen’s first great-grandchild, Savannah Phillips, in 2010.
Meanwhile, in 2012, Autumn gave birth to another girl, Isla Elizabeth.
