The Queen’s grandson Peter Phillips has reportedly been quizzed by the police over claims he drove from Gloucestershire to Scotland to visit a mum-of-two.
Peter, 43, who is Princess Anne’s eldest child, was said to have been ‘issued advice’ by officers after driving more than 460 miles to the village of St Cyrus, Aberdeenshire, The Sun reports.
Police Scotland have since stated that officers found no breaches of Covid legislation.
Peter, who is 17th in line for the throne, was allegedly seen visiting the home of a married woman, 40, who is estranged from her husband, with his Range Rover parked outside the property on Friday.
The woman is said to be a friend Peter’s sister Zara Tindall, and also attended his private school Gordonstoun, in Moray, Scotland. Peter ended his 11-year marriage with wife Autumn in 2020.
A spokesperson for Peter said he had travelled to Scotland on business with his company XL Medical, which provides rapid Covid tests.
They declined to comment on the ‘details or circumstances’ of Peter’s accommodation when travelling for business.
Movement between England and Scotland is currently not allowed under Covid restrictions, with both countries urging residents to ‘stay at home’ unless they have a reasonable excuse to travel.

England’s ‘stay at home’ messaging will be lifted on 29 March, while Scotland’s will end on April 2. However, those in England will not be allowed to stay overnight at another person’s home until April 12 the earliest.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon aims to lift travel restrictions on Scotland from April 26, although rules regarding the islands may differ.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: ‘At around 6.40pm on Friday 26 March, 2021, police received a report of a potential breach of coronavirus regulations at a property in St Cyrus, Montrose.
‘Officers attended, spoke to the occupants and found no breaches of legislation.’
