Peter Phillips and his estranged wife Autumn Phillips' are trying to settle their divorce case, the High Court has heard. 

The couple announced their separation in February last year, but had been living apart since late 2019.

At a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, Mr Justice Peel was told that the former couple are "continuing to endeavour to settle the case" over their finances.

A further hearing is due to take place next month, in the event that the pair are unable to reach an agreement.

When announcing their plans to divorce last year, the couple's spokesperson said in a joint statement: "The couple's first priority will remain the continued wellbeing 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."
