She swapped Royalty for riches but Autumn Phillips has, until now, kept her romance with a wealthy property tycoon out of the spotlight.

Our exclusive pictures are the first to show the former wife of Peter Phillips, the Queen‘s eldest grandchild, with her new love Donal Mulryan, an Irish construction company boss.

The couple, who have been dating since last year, were photographed with Isla and Savannah, her two daughters with Peter, on a Mother’s Day outing to the Cirencester horse trials.

There they watched the girls’ aunt, Zara Tindall, compete on her gelding Class Affair. 

They were joined by Zara’s husband Mike and his three children, Mia, Lena and Lucas, who played happily while their mother competed.

‘It looked like a happy family day out,’ said an onlooker. 

‘Autumn and Donal were very relaxed about being seen together and totally focused on enjoying a couple of hours watching the horses and letting the children enjoy themselves.’

Princess Anne’s son Peter, 44, and Montreal-born Autumn, 43, announced in February 2020 that they were planning to divorce after 12 years of marriage. 

The split was formally settled last June.

Mulryan, who boasts that he has been behind more than £5 billion of property schemes, is close friends with Prince Albert of Monaco, having lived in the principality with his socialite wife Louise before they split several years ago.

He has known Autumn for more than 15 years.

Autumn met her ex-husband at the 2003 Canadian Grand Prix while Peter was working for the Williams Formula 1 team. 

Their engagement was announced in July 2007, and they married in May 2008 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Meanwhile, Peter has also found love again with a family friend, Lindsay Wallace, who went to the £40,000-a-year Gordonstoun School in Scotland with Zara, and attended her wedding.
