Queen Elizabeth II’s eldest grandchild Peter Phillips, 46, has separated from his partner Lindsay Wallace, 43, after four years together.

A source confirmed the news to HELLO!, and it’s understood the pair separated a few months ago.

A friend of the couple told HELLO!: “Peter and Lindsay made the difficult decision to separate as they were spending less time together with work and family commitments.

“Peter’s business commitments and work in F1 meant he has been away and travelling non stop.

“It obviously came as a shock as most people thought they were absolutely rock solid, it’s very sad. Peter has been travelling all over the world and has been incredibly busy and Lindsay is based up in Scotland, so it’s been hard for them to see each other.”

A source informed The Sun that they remain amicable: “They were friends before their relationship blossomed. But Peter and Lindsay have gone their separate ways as the relationship simply ran its course.”

Meanwhile, Peter’s official spokesperson declined to comment, saying it was a “private matter”.

Princess Anne’s son and Lindsay first got together in 2020 following Peter’s separation from his wife Autumn Kelly, and the couple made their official debut at the Epsom Derby in June 2022.

Peter shares two children with his ex-wife, 13-year-old Savannah and 12-year-old Isla, while Lindsay also has two children of her own.

A friend of the couple described Lindsay as “a breath of fresh air”, and it’s understood that the 46-year-old introduced her to his grandmother the late Queen at Windsor in early 2022.

Insiders revealed that Peter’s decision to introduce them was a “clear sign that Lindsay has been welcomed into the family” and created hope within the family that the pair were contemplating marriage.

Sources claimed that the Queen wanted her eldest and “favourite” grandson to be happy.

Following that, the pair continuously appeared at a variety of high-profile royal family events together. These events included Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, Royal Ascot, Wimbledon and the Coronation Concert in May 2023.

At the time, a friend told HELLO! that “it meant a lot” to Peter to be able to bring Lindsay to the Concert.

“He is in a great place at the moment and could not be happier in either his private or personal life,” they said.

Lindsay went to school at Gordonstoun in Scotland alongside Peter’s sister Zara Tindall, and it’s believed the pair reconnected at a 2019 reunion.

Lindsay attended Zara’s wedding to Mike Tindall in 2011, and was present at the joint christening of Zara’s son Lucas and Princess Eugenie’s son August in 2021.
