Royal Family romance rumors are brewing after Peter Phillips attended his nephew's double christening with a 'close' friend on Sunday. 

Peter Phillips has sparked romance rumors after arriving at a royal baptism on Sunday in Windsor with 'close friend' Lindsay Wallace. 

The eldest of the Queen's grandchildren arrived at the Royal Lodge with the oil heiress to witness his sister Zara Tindall's son, Lucas, be christened alongside Princess Eugenie's son, August. His mother Princess Anne, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Her Majesty were also present for the momentous occasion. 

Lindsay and Peter go way back, having first met each other during their school days at Gordonstoun in Scotland, and have reportedly grown closer since the collapse of Peter's marriage to Autumn Phillips in February 2020.

The 43-year-old divorcé, who shares daughters Isla and Savannah with his ex, was even accused of breaking Covid-19 travel restrictions in March 2021 after he was photographed visiting Autumn at her home in Aberdeenshire - a whopping 480 miles from his residence at Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire. 

A royal source has said that the pair is currently "keeping things under wraps", adding that "only the inner circle knew about this friendship." 

Like Peter, Lindsay has also endured her fair share of marital heartache. 

The 40-year-old is recently separated from her husband, with whom she has two children, and now spends her time as a stay-at-home mum in the seaside village of St. Cyrus. Her family background remains relatively unknown, but it's understood she hails from mega-rich parents. 

"Her father worked in the oil industry and the family pride themselves on being a Christian family who are pillars of their local community," a source told the Sun in March.
