If they're going to live closely in 2 houses on the Gatcombe estate, it seems rather strange that they couldn't have lived (relatively separate) lives in the same house on the Gatcombe estate, without all this kerfuffle, at least until the girls had grown a bit older?

They're actually following the model established by Anne and Mark Phillips. They divorced, went on with their lives yet lived on the same estate and even ran their equistrian business together on the Gatcombe estate (if I'm remembering right)

Presumalby they want a divorce and not just living separate lives.

Maybe because they want to move on with their lives. Possibly romantically down the road.

Staying married for the sake of kids rarely works well for anyone. Resentment often grows and that isn’t good for the kids.

There is no kerfuffle. They are divorcing amicably. Unlike the war of the Wales, Peter and autumn seem to take the route of his parents. Divorcing and coparenting on good terms. Best thing for all of them.

As I understand the couple had been living in Aston farm, the part portioned off in the divorce for Mark. Peter had a cottage on the main estate at one point. One easily could use the cottage. I’d think likely who ever had primary custody would likely remain in the family home so not to up root the girls too much. Peter also works in London a lot so choosing the smaller cottage especially if Autumn is primary night suit his schedule.

To be fair the news wasn't released officially, it was exposed by the Sun and then confirmed. They may well have wanted to set their new lives up and then announce once the girls were settled into it etc.

I'm sure its better for all if a divorce is what is wanted that they are upfront about it.
