Peter Phillips makes debut with his girlfriend Lindsay Wallace at Epsom Derby months after introducing her to the Queen

PETER Phillips looked loved up today as he made his debut with girlfriend Lindsay Wallace at the Epsom Derby.

The Queen's grandson, 44, introduced his new partner to Her Majesty just months ago after he las year finalised his divorce from Autumn after 12 years of marriage.


Peter donned a top hat as Linsday – an old school pal – beamed in a coral dress, with the pair joined by his mother Princess Anne, as well as his sister and brother-in-law Zara and Mike Tindall.

The horse-loving monarch was forced to pull out of the Epsom Derby today after experiencing some "discomfort" during Thursday's celebrations.

She also missed yesterday's service of thanksgiving at St Paul's Cathedral – which Peter, dad to daughters Savannah, 11, and Isla, ten – attended without Ms Wallace.

Peter and Autumn Phillips announced in February 2020 that they were splitting after more than a decade together.

The couple first met at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2003 – at the time, Autumn working for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. 

After relocating to the UK, Autumn wed Peter at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle in 2008 and they became proud parents to their two daughters.

Royal insiders have previously said that Peter is the Queen’s “favourite” grandson and Her Majesty was said to be "upset" when the marriage broke down.

In the months following the split, Peter and Autumn were expected to hold a court showdown as they tried to reach a settlement.

Three months before his divorce was finalised, the dad-of-two was reported to have driven 460 miles from his Gatcombe Park home in Gloucestershire to visit his new girlfriend Ms Wallace in lockdown.

In January, Peter showed off his new partner the Queen – who is this week celebrating her Platinum Jubilee – after he held a shooting party at Windsor.

On Thursday, the monarch stepped out on Thursday to watch the Trooping the Colour before beaming alongside her family on the balcony – as cheeky Prince Louis kept her company.

But after experiencing some "discomfort" on the day, she pulled out of yesterday's service at St Paul's Cathedral as the other royals gathered.

Buckingham Palace also confirmed the Queen would miss the Epsom Derby today because of her ongoing health issues.
