The Queen’s first grandchild, Peter Phillips, has been spoken to by Police after a 460 mile trip to Scotland amid the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown across the United Kingdom. Peter, son of Princess Anne and Mark Phillips, is said to have journeyed from his Gatcombe Park home in Gloucestershire to Aberdeenshire in Scotland.
According to The Sun, Peter Phillips turned up in the village of St Cyrus to visit a woman who is a friend of his sister, Zara Tindall. Phillips was spotted outside the woman’s home and his Range Rover was still seen outside her home on Saturday.
Police called on Peter Phillips and the woman in question though decided that there was no breach in COVID regulations in his actions. Officers confirmed that there had been investigations into an alleged breach of COVID restrictions at the address but no breaches of legislation had occurred.
A local source told The Sun, “It seems wrong he has travelled here from England, whatever the circumstances. Scotland is closed and if you flew here you would have to quarantine for ten days.”
Peter Phillips was born on 15th November 1977 and is the eldest grandchild of Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh. He is 16th in the line of succession to the British throne and in 2020, he separated from his wife, Autumn, after nearly 12 years of marriage.
A Police Scotland spokeswoman commented, “At around 6:40pm on Friday 26th March, 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.”
