In 2020, Peter Phillips divorced his wife, Autumn, after 12 years together and welcoming two children. The couple amicably settled their divorce in June 2021. Mr Phillips later grew close to Lindsay Wallace after a school reunion following the breakdown of both their marriages.

A source told The Sun: “The Queen is one of the most important people in Peter’s life so it’s only right that he introduces Lindsay to her.

“It was a very warm meeting and the Queen was clearly delighted to meet someone who makes Peter so happy.

“Despite the fact that he divorced Autumn, they have two children together and relations are still incredibly warm between them.

“They are both moving on with their lives and accept that the other will find someone else romantically.

“It may still be early days but Peter wanted his grandmother to see he was happy.

“It is a clear sign that Lindsay has now been firmly welcomed into The Firm and a major first step if they were to ever choose to get married.

“The Queen just wants Peter to be happy.”

Ms Wallace is a school friend of Zara Tindall, Mr Phillips’ younger sister, and is the daughter of an oil tycoon.

Both Zara and Ms Wallace went to the £40,000-a-year Gordonstoun school in Aberdeenshire, where Peter was a couple of years above them.

Ms Wallace was among the guests at Zara’s 2011 wedding to rugby star Mike Tindall.

Last year, a source told the Daily Mail that Peter and Ms Wallace had been “keeping things under wraps”.

In November, they were pictured together in a car arriving at the joint christening of Zara’s son, Lucas, and Princess Eugenie’s son, August Brooksbank.

Peter is the oldest son of Princess Anne and her first husband Captain Mark Phillips and is the oldest grandson of the Queen.

He is 18th in the line of succession but holds no royal title – the same as younger sister Zara – and is not a working royal.
