It continues to be a trying year for the royal family. Amid Prince Andrew’s ongoing drama and in the aftermath of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal exit, Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson, Peter Phillips, announced that he has separated from his wife of 11 years, Autumn, and they are planning to divorce.
Peter, 42, and Autumn, 41, tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in 2008 — where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbanks both had their royal weddings in 2018.
“They had reached the conclusion that this was the best course of action for their two children and ongoing friendship,” a spokesperson for the couple told British network ITV in a statement. “The decision to divorce and share custody came about after many months of discussions and, although sad, is an amicable one.”
