Daily fail spin as usual. The money was not the fee simply for planning. It was the cost of the event. The firm would have planned and paid the vendors, the money above was compensation for money paid out by the firm. As well as their service.

His firm made a bid and won. Obviously other companies wanted more money. While I don't think royals are above nepotism, I do think the queen is. She wouldn't need the bad press if there was any reason to think not fair bid.

Sadly many charity events end up like this. Almost as much money spent on event as actually raised.

Agree, important to note this is how much the company Peter works for was paid to organise the event, the real interesting figure would be their profit from this sum. I suspect that figure is much much lower.

So, not a public job and not using public funds. And who know how cushy it is or is not. I loathe this kind of snarky innuendo. The pay level is implied.

Frankly, he's well qualified for the job, family or not.

I agree, with Peter's background from school and prior jobs, and his experience at Gatcombe over the years he knows what needs to be done. And as much work as his parents have put into this, building it over the years, they wouldn't let an unqualified person, even their own son take this on.

Exactly. Anne is the last person in that family who would hand her children a job on a silver platter. Her and Mark have taken the home they were given as a married couple and turned it into a successful business, even after they divorced. The eventing challenge is a huge part of that. They have spent too many years developing and turning it into what it is to hand it over to anyone who is not qualified, even if it is her son.

He has been working in this field for 17 years, since graduating university in 2000, with a degree in sports. Not to mention he has been involved in the event in different capacities for many years. How anyone could argue that he wasn't qualified to take the position I don't know.

Habitat for Humanity launched its 2017 Women Build program Friday morning in the company of royal patron Autumn Phillips.

Phillips is the royal ambassador for Women Build.

She's married to Peter Phillips, eldest grandson of Queen Elizabeth II. Peter's mother is princess Anne.

Women Build brings women together to raise money and hammers for Habitat.

It seems a family event. Her father is involved with Habitat for Humanity for 25 years. Its great to see Autumn involved in the initiative, including the work with the first nations in the area, and getting youth involved.

One of those occasions that one could wish the work of a 'private' member of the family got a little media attention. Every cause could use a bump.

Sounds like both Peter and Autumn are royal patrons for Habitat for Humanity; each taking up the role of ambassador for their own specific programs.

Yes, she has a twin brother Chris, as well as older brother Kevin.

They were in Ontario for the event the article is about. How often she visits Canada we don't know, as they are very private citizens. They rarely make the news other then Peter planning the queen's lunch, and things like Christmas.

I would assume the years that they are not with the Queen for Christmas, they are visiting Autumn's family. But because there is little interest in them (unless its for a made up controversy), no one knows. I would imagine that unless its a published event like the Habitat for Humanity...Autumn and family.....fly into Canada without the press knowing and fly out the same way.

"I had a lovely meeting with Autumn Phillips to discuss her cooperating with our newly launched luxury lifestyle club, the Global Group Lifestyle and Sports Club. Autumn is married to Peter Phillips, the son of HRH Princess Anne, The Princess Royal, and the eldest grandson of the Queen Elizabeth. I felt very much at home with Autumn and enjoyed our chat, not least as she used to live in Hong Kong (and she speaks Chinese fluently), whilst Peter was working there for the Royal Bank of Scotland."
