"After informing HM The Queen and members of both families past year, Peter and Autumn jointly agreed to separate", it said [via The Telegraph]. They'd reached the conclusion that this was the ideal plan of motion for his or her two children and ongoing friendship.

The news comes in the midst of a turbulent time for the Royal Family - already battered with the fallout from Prince Andrew's auto crash interview on his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's decisions to step down as senior royals.

Peter, a sports marketing consultant, met Autumn, a management consultant, in 2003 in her hometown of Montreal at the Formula One Grand Prix. Diminish Phillips, 42, is said to be "crushed" after spouse Autumn, 41, revealed to him she needed to isolate.

"Perhaps she thought that if they could make it happen, then she could do it as well", a close friend added.
