I have a couple of questions
Peter and Zara Phillips have royal blood but no title and they are the queen's grandchildren but do they have a special title or status with BRF

Peter Phillips got married to autumn Kelly at Windsor castle so did the Queen give him a gift as her grandchild and what about savannah Phillips being related to the royal family I am sure Peter and autumn visit the queen to let elizabeth II and Phillip see their great grandchild

Peter and Zara do have a status as grandchildren of the Queen. They enjoy precedence as grandchildren of the sovereign.

I would expect that the Queen did give a wedding present to Peter and Autumn, but to my knowledge it wasn't made public.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburough were at Savannah's christening.

I've watched a couple of interviews in the past that Peter Phillips gave & although he says he enjoys not having a title I sometimes wonder how true is that?

I mean let's be for real... I'm sure he has gotten jealous at some point in his life. His cousins are Royal Highnesses and Princes & Princesses. Protocol dictates that he & his wife should bow & curtsey to them. Prince William is a Knight of the Order of the Garter & Thistle... Prince Harry will no doubt follow these same honours when Prince Charles becomes king. I just wonder if he ever feels left out or unequal all because he's a grandson in the female line.

I suspect he looks at their lives, the official duties required of them, the interference of the press and the paps, and thinks "there but for the grace of God" and thanks his parents everyday that he was able to live a life that for the most part is pretty normal and outside of the public eye. People I think look at the big royal ceremonies, the palaces, the uniforms and the jewels and think "Oh isnt that wonderful, I would love that life" but they dont think of the down side or the personal sacrifices it involves.

I just read an article in the Telegraph saying that Zara was denied a royal title and is better of for it.

Mark Philips was offered and earldom just like Tony Armstrong Jones and turned it down. Say he didn't. Peter would be Viscount something and Zara - Lady Zara. They never would be Prince or Princess. They would be just like the children of Princess Margaret.

Zara would be able to do the same things that she did. No one complained about marrying Mike because she is so far down the line of succession. William and Harry relationships were scrutinized because of William is a direct heir and Harry is "the bad boy prince".

I agree. I doubt that Peter or Zara wish they had a Royal title, to be honest they have it best - they get some of the best bits of being royal but without all that comes with it. They both live their lives pretty much out of the public eye when you compare them to William, Harry or even IMO Beatrice and Eugenie and much of the media attention is pretty much in keeping with what a famous sporting couple like Zara (an Olympian and international horsewoman) and Tindall (an international Rugby player) might expect.
They live on their mothers large country estate and I imagine Anne doesn't exactly charge them rent for doing so, they can probably go to any Royal residence and explore it yet don't have to live in them surrounded by security and staff. They can attend big royal events then go back to quiet lives. IMO they have the best deal of the lot.

Though no title, they do have a place in the order of precedence in any royal/family event. Peter falls between James and Viscount Linley, in the order of precedence for gentleman. Similarily, Zara falls between Louise and Viscountess Linley.

Orders of precedence in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peter and Autumn were not only married at Windsor castle, but with the family in attendance including the queen, so I'd assume gifts were involved. The queen and duke attended the christening of Savannah, and I highly doubt they missed Isla's. We know that Peter and Autumn are involved in the public royal events, and at the very least, we know they attend Christmas at Sandringham. When we see pictures of the family walking to church, both Peter and Autumn are there.
