Sources revealed Autumn and Peter’s relationship ‘hadn’t been going well’ in September 2019, with the couple – who share daughters Savannah, 9, and Isla, 7 – later announcing they had split at the end of the year.
In the 18 months since the break-up, snaps shared online show the mother-of-two beaming as she embarks on single life, enjoying a glass of wine with friends in bed and drinking champagne for ‘breakfast at Heathrow’ airport.

During her time in the royal family, Autumn was usually only seen at official engagements, and was last pictured with Peter in at Cheltenham Racecourse in March 2020.
Prior to that, she appeared alongside Peter in Scotland with Prince Charles and the Queen during the Braemar Royal Highland Gathering at the Fife Memorial Park, Braemar, in September 2019.
However, in the past 18 months since the couple’s break-up, friends of Autumn have taken to sharing stunning snaps of the royal on social media as they enjoy wild weekends away and party together.
Made In Chelsea star Binky Felstead’s sister Anna-Louise regularly posts photographs of the duo in hysterics with one another and has referred to Autumn as her ‘bestie.’
Last year, Autumn and Peter announced they had split at the end of 2019, and confirmed they would continue to live in Gloucestershire and co-parent their children Savannah, 9, and Isla, 7 (seen last June)
In September 2019, weeks after Autumn had been pictured at the Highland Games with the Queen and during a period when sources said the relationship ‘wasn’t going well’, Anna-Louise posted a series of photographs with Autumn.
Sharing one selfie with the Queen’s granddaughter-in-law, she wrote: ‘Zero sleep so needed a filter #Shameless.’
Autumn went on to comment from her own Instagram account, playfully posting: ‘Thank god for the filter!!’
Weeks later the girls travelled to Gleneagles for the Supercar rally, with Anna-Louise and Autumn posing for a raucous snap while on a night out.

Their girly adventures didn’t stop there. In one photograph shared Anna-Louise last June, the pair posed for a picture while on a night-out at swanky eatery Sexy Fish, a Pan-Asian restaurant housed in a former NatWest bank on Berkeley Square.
It is a venture from Caprice Holdings tycoon Richard Caring, who counts The Ivy and Annabel’s among his businesses.

In another image, the girls could be seen posing as they cleaned a super-car, with Anna-Louise captioning the post: ‘Never let it be said the girls don’t get stuck in.’
It was reported in February last year that Peter and Autumn informed their families of their ‘amicable’ decision to divorce ‘at the end of 2019’ after deciding it was ‘the best course of action for their two children and ongoing friendship’.
The statement, released by a spokesperson on behalf of the couple, revealed the former couple planned to remain in Gloucestershire to co-parent daughters Savannah and Isla.

The statement issued by Gerard Franklin, their official spokesperson, read: ‘After informing HM The Queen and members of both families last year, Peter and Autumn jointly agreed to separate.
‘They had reached the conclusion that this was the best course of action for their two children and ongoing friendship. The decision to divorce and share custody came about after many months of discussions and although sad, is an amicable one.
‘The couple’s first priority will remain the continued well being and upbringing of their wonderful daughters Savannah and Isla.
‘Both families were naturally sad at the announcement, but fully supportive of Peter and Autumn in the joint decision to co-parent their children.

In another photograph from the girly trip, Autumn wore a low-key outfit as she playfully posed against a car
‘Both Peter and Autumn have remained in Gloucestershire to bring up their two children where they have been settled for a number of years. Peter and Autumn have requested privacy and compassion for their children while the family continues to adapt to these changes.’
At the time, a source close to the family told
They added: ‘At the moment they are still sharing the marital home in Gloucestershire and there are no plans for a quickie divorce, there’s no rush and there is no suggestion of Autumn going to Canada.’
The source said the couple had ‘very sadly grown apart’, and said they’d been having discussions about their marriage for ‘some time’.
They added that the royal family had been aware things ‘hadn’t been going well’ since the autumn.
The images have emerged weeks after Peter denied he is a couple with one of his sister Zara’s closest school friends.
A photograph showed the Range Rover belonging to Peter outside mother-of-two Lindsay Wallace’s £475,000 home in St Cyrus, Aberdeenshire last month, hours after officers quizzed the pair.
Princess Anne’s son Peter was spoken to by the authorities after neighbours spotted his luxury 4×4 on her drive and called the police claiming the pair were breaking lockdown rules.
Lindsay, a mother-of-two who is understood to have recently split from her husband Andrew, is a close friend of Peter’s sister Zara and got back in contact with him at a recent reunion for their £40,000-a-year boarding school, Gordonstoun.
A source close to the royal has told Hello Magazine that they are not dating and he only stayed there because of a lack of hotels in the area.
But another insider told The Sun Peter is ‘besotted’ with the daughter of a wealthy oil executive and had been ‘keeping things under wraps’.
