Peter Phillips is not dating family friend Lindsay Wallace, sources close to Princess Anne's son have said whilst confirming that his visit to her home in Scotland was purely for business.

It comes after Peter, 43, was quizzed by the police over a potential breach of lockdown rules for travelling from his home in Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire. 

However, it was decided that Peter hadn't breached any rules when he said he was there for business with his company XF Medical, which provides rapid COVID tests.

HELLO! understands that Peter stayed the night at Lindsay's home in St Cyrus, Aberdeenshire, as there were no hotels in the area open due to lockdown.

When Peter previously visited Lindsay, who went to school with his younger sister Zara Tindall, in August it's understood that he was with his children, Savannah and Isla Phillips, and a group of friends. However, HELLO! understands that Peter did not stay with Lindsay on that occasion, and the families had met at a local beach in St Cyrus.

Lindsay also attended Zara's wedding to rugby player Mike Tindall in Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh in July 2011.
