Front page of The Sun tomorrow, it’s an odd one for me. Don’t know where we’d get official confirmation from, BP?

I don't know why but I had one of those odd feelings that this might happen but didn't want to say it (yeah yeah I know no one will believe me)

How sad and the Queen is, I bet, very sad. With Autumn being CanadianI suspect it may not be a simple divorce in terms of custody etc even with goodwill from both sides.

BP announced their wedding (and Zara's I think although probably alongside her own management / PR) so I guess they would confirm a divorce.

Was just reading that also.

The Queen's eldest grandson Peter Phillips has separated from his wife of 12 years.

I'm shocked. That's true?

Hmm....well it certainly is terribly sad and they always seemed like a very happy couple. However, I actually predicted this in the "What Will Happen" thread and had a few very unkind remarks thrown my way. Not that anyone wanted to see this happen because I actually was always a huge fan of Autumn and Peter and thought they seemed like a really lovely couple.

UK
*Fourth pregnancy for the Cambridges, baby due in late 2020 or early 2021. No thoughts on a boy or girl yet. This one will be their last, though.
*Second pregnancy for the Sussexes, another boy later in the year.
*A very quiet wedding for Bea and Edo in late spring or early summer. Very small and with only a few pictures released.
*Pregnancy announcement in the spring for Eugenie and Jack. A boy in late fall.
*A pregnancy announcement in the summer for Lady Gabriella and Tom Kingston. Baby arrives early in 2021.
*We won't see Andrew at all.
*No regency quite yet but a definite uptake in duties for Charles/Camilla and William/Kate.
*The DoE's health continues to decline.
*More activities from Anne/Tim and Edward/Sophie as they prepare to step into the supporting roles for Charles.
*I think we'll see the Sussexes take gigantic steps toward breaking away from the monarchy completely. 2021 might be the year it finalizes but 2020 will show the writing on the wall. They'll focus instead of charity work and initiatives and we may see Meghan attempt to blend her previous career with her new direction in some form.
*No more babies for Peter/Autumn or Zara/Mike.
*I think we'll definitely see rumors of marital discord for one or more of the Queen's grandchildren, though not for Zara/Mike, the Cambridges, or Eugenie/Jack.

What were your reasons for predicting it? I didn't see it coming at all, now I think I must have missed something. It's so dreadfully sad either way.

Truthfully, statistics alone. I posted it above in my comment and, to be fair, I didn't target the Phillips' I just said they might be one of the couples it could be. And the only reasoning I had was that out of the six adult grandchildren of HM, it would be highly unusual for all six of the marriages to go the distance. Granted, it would have been wonderful if they had but, statistically speaking, they won't. And it had just been far too quiet on that front for too long. I suspected that we might start to hear the rumblings of discord either based in fact or simply in rumor but often where there's smoke there's fire. And I had some really unkind comments thrown my way after that prediction. But then when they didn't turn up at Sandringham for Christmas I suspected that I might have been on the right track. Not that they shouldn't spend the holidays with Autumn's family but that it's just unusual for them to do so when they're pretty much always at Sandringham. It just seemed...off. In all honesty when I made the prediction I suspected it would be either Peter/Autumn, Harry/Meghan, or Bea/Edo. While I personally leaned more toward the last two, Peter and Autumn have been together the longest and it makes sense, statistically speaking, that it's them.

I agree. Though given the hour I wouldn’t think we’ll see an official statement until tomorrow.

Unlikely, it will be in tomorrow's papers. It looks like the House of Windsor has yet another divorce...

I think the last time Peter and Autumn appeared together was in September at Braemar Gathering

I don’t know much about these two, but what a a terribly sad thing, it really is- and wrenching for children - for anyone. Divorce is littered through my family, and there was a lot of anguish, anger and heartbreak especially with my siblings’ divorces. I don’t know how something like this can be a shock, but that’s heartbreaking - especially for those poor kids; they’re BABIES. I hope Autumn doesn’t return to Canada - that would be so unfair to the kids.

Too sad.

They still might work out a happy solution. They seem a delightful family.

I think Autumn and Peter will do whatever is best for the girls even if that means relocation. I just think it is weird that Wootton getting all these exclusives. There is clearly a leak in BP for sure. But yeah it is sad all around. This has been quite an interesting few months for this family.

This is a surprise and it is sad. I saw a post by Marlene Eilers Koenig on her blog Royal Musings today Royal Musings: Peter and Autumn Phillips split? as a heads up. "Peter and Autumn Phillips split? Expect this front page story for Tuesday's Sun. Peter and Autumn Phillips have separated." I took notice because Marlene is a well known royal expert on British and European royalty so it really caught my eye. But again, no official statement. I always liked seeing Autumn and her girls, so natural and fun loving. And, from what many of you have said, both Peter and Autumn a favorite of the Queen. This just all seems a bit much.

I find it impossible to believe that relocating to Canada while the children’s’ father stays in the UK would be best for them...
