Cheltenham is back and royalty and major stars have descended on the English town for a weekend of racing action.

Among those spotted at the annual event were Princess Anne and her son Peter Phillips, but Peter's ex-wife, Autumn Phillips, was also there alongside her partner, Donal Mulryan. The pair were photographed at the racecourse and they look so loved-up as they smiled and posed together.

The pair both dressed up warm for the event, with Donal donning a large grey overcoat and pair of trousers, while Autumn looked radiant in a navy coat and trousers, finishing off her outfit with a pair of black shoes and a green hat.

Donal Mulryan is the founder of the UK development and construction company Rockwell, and the website for the company has shared some information on his career. It reads: "With over 30 years of experience, Donal has delivered more than 6 million sq ft of UK hotel, residential and commercial property. Throughout his career he has successfully delivered award-winning, iconic buildings in London, Manchester, Leeds and Dublin.

"Donal is a Patron of the Patchwork Foundation, which seeks to engage young people from disadvantaged and minority communities in politics and civil society."

Autumn and Donal made their public debut as a couple at the Cirencester horse trials in March 2022, with the couple appearing alongside Autumn's former sister-in-law, Zara Tindall, and her family.

"Whilst this is a sad day for Peter and Autumn, they continue to put the wellbeing and upbringing of their wonderful daughters Savannah and Isla first and foremost."
