- Peter Phillips's wife wants a divorce after 12 years of being married to the eldest grandson of Queen Elizabeth, friends have disclosed
- Friends say Peter is devastated and in total shock that his wife has decided to split from him
- Phillips is the queen's eldest grandchild - his marriage with Autumn produced two children
Friends have disclosed that Peter Phillips, Queen Elizabeth's eldest grandchild, will be separated from his Canadian-born wife Autumn Phillips.
According to friends, Peter is devastated and in total shock that his wife wants a divorce after 12 years of marriage, Daily Mail reports.
Legit.ng gathers that there are speculations that Autumn will now want to return to Canada with their two daughters.
Recall that the duke and duchess of Sussex Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently living in Canada after quitting as senior members of the royal family.
A source speculated that Autumn's decision might have been hastened by the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan are residents of Canada.
The source said: "Maybe she has been influenced by Harry and Meghan’s departure. Perhaps she thought if that can happen then I can leave as well? That might be unfair on her but you have to consider it."
Another source said: "Peter is absolutely devastated by this and just didn't see it coming. He thought he was happily married and had the perfect family with two lovely daughters. But he is now in total shock."
In other news, supermodel Naomi Campbell has said she supports the decision by Prince Harry and Meghan to step down as senior members of the royal family.
Declaring her support for the couple, the supermodel said: "I support them whatever."
This is not the first time the 49-year-old model would be supporting Meghan Markle even though she has not met the Duchess of Sussex.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that American media executive and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey denied helping Prince Harry and Meghan on leaving their posts as senior members of the royal family.
Winfrey said it is false that she was the first person the couple spoke to about their departure, adding that Harry and Meghan do not need her help figuring what is best for them.
Oprah said she cares about the couple and is in support of whatever decision they make for their family.
A source said: "Oprah was the first person to talk to Harry and Meghan about breaking free and doing their own thing, building on their own brand. She made them realise it was really possible."
