Buckingham Palace announced the engagement this weekend of the Queen’s eldest grandson Peter Phillips to his Canadian girlfriend Autumn Kelly. Peter Philips is the son of the Princess Royal (Princess Anne) and like his sister Zara, he doesn’t hold a Royal title or carry out official Royal engagements. Both Peter and his sister try as much as possible to keep a low profile out of the public eye, not easy sometimes when you’re related to the Royal family.
For those of you interested in the Royal family, Princess Anne or the Princess Royal as she is known is the Queen’s second child and only daughter. Princess Anne is a tireless charity worker and one of the hardest working members of the Royal family. The Queen also has three sons. Prince Charles is the Queen’s eldest child and heir to the throne. Prince Andrew or the Duke of York as he is known is the Queen’s second son. The Queen’s youngest son is Prince Edward or the Earl of Wessex as he is better known.
