Peter Phillips’ girlfriend Lindsay Wallace made her royal public debut over the Platinum Jubilee weekend as she attended several key events.

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations have drawn to an end but fans were left with not only some lovely memories but also unique glimpses of many members of the extended Royal Family that aren’t seen as often as others. This included Her Majesty’s grandson Peter Phillips and his reported girlfriend Lindsay Wallace. 

The couple attended multiple events together over the Jubilee weekend, from the Epsom Derby to the Platinum Party at the Palace and the Platinum Jubilee Pageant. This is understood to have been Lindsay’s debut at a public royal event alongside Peter and they certainly seemed to be enjoying the occasion.  

Beaming as they watched the races and the performances at the concert and pageant, Peter and Lindsay's appearances might well have got royal fans wondering more about the Queen's grandson's new partner.

Who is Peter Phillips’ girlfriend? 

Peter Phillips’ girlfriend is Lindsay Wallace and the Queen’s grandson sparked romance rumors in autumn last year after he reportedly invited her to accompany him to the double christening of his nephew Lucas Tindall and Princess Eugenie's son August Brooksbank. 

The couple haven’t directly addressed their relationship, though their appearance together at this special family event, as well as Lindsay’s royal debut over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, hints that love has blossomed between them. 

Some reports have claimed that Lindsay is separated from her husband and has two children, though not much is known for sure about her.

How did Peter Phillips meet his girlfriend Lindsay Wallace?

The Queen’s grandson and Lindsay Wallace both attended the same school, Gordonstoun, although Peter Phillips was three years above her. According to the Daily Mail, Peter and Lindsay are believed to have reconnected at a reunion and she’s understood to be a friend of his sister Zara Tindall. 

Zara also attended the prestigious Scottish school where her late grandfather Prince Philip and uncle Prince Charles were educated. Reports have suggested that Lindsay was even invited to Zara’s wedding to retired rugby star Mike Tindall in Edinburgh back in 2011.

Meanwhile, earlier this year speculation over a possible Peter and Lindsay romance was sparked once again after a source claimed to The Sun that despite being in the “early days” of a relationship, Her Majesty had met her grandson’s partner. They added that the meeting took place at a hunting party held at Windsor Castle

“The Queen is one of the most important people in Peter’s life so it’s only right that he introduces Lindsay to her,” the source alleged at the time. “It was a very warm meeting and the Queen was clearly delighted to meet someone who makes Peter so happy.”

They went on to suggest that this supposed meeting was a major moment for Peter Phillips and Lindsay Wallace as it showed he’d been “welcomed” into the family. 

“It may still be early days but Peter wanted his grandmother to see he was happy. It is a clear sign that Lindsay has now been firmly welcomed into The Firm and a major first step if they were to ever choose to get married. The Queen just wants Peter to be happy,” the source claimed.

Now Peter Phillips’ girlfriend has made her first major royal public appearance with him over the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend which comes a year after Peter Phillips and Autumn Phillips finalized their divorce in June 2021.

The former couple were married for over a decade before announcing their separation in February 2020. A statement released by Peter and Autumn revealed that they have “resolved matters amicably” and reiterated that their “wonderful daughters” Savannah and Isla are “firmly at the forefront of those thoughts and decisions”.

Savannah and Isla Phillips are the eldest of the Queen’s great-grandchildren and have been spotted several times in recent months. Both accompanied Peter to the Service of Thanksgiving held for Prince Philip in March and to Platinum Jubilee events.

They seemed to be enjoying themselves alongside their cousins Mia and Lena Tindall, as well as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. With so much public attention on the royals over the Jubilee weekend it was lovely that Peter Phillips' girlfriend Lindsay made so many appearances, especially sitting with his two daughters. It certainly seems like she's been welcomed into the Royal Family as she enjoyed the Queen's milestone celebrations.
